Sometimes I dream that he is me… And that my pad is 56,000SqFt, has 9 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, and an island green swimming pool. I can keep on dreaming but if you’re sitting on millions you can own Michael Jordan’s Chicago-area mansion in an upcoming auction on November 22.
His Airness originally put the property on the market for a cool $29 million but after a year passed without a buyer, that was reduced by $8 million. Still not happy with the deal, Jordan decided to have his former digs sold via auction.
To provide prospective bidders with a true appreciation for the home, Concierge Auctions has produced a nearly 9 minute video tour and, as one might imagine, it’s pretty amazing stuff!
Considering that Jordan was my childhood hero, it’s safe to say that my brains imploded with a full look at his much-talked-about, in-home regulation basketball court. I was kinda like Justin Timberlake was when he actually met the man (but with better bladder control).
