Michael Jordan is trying to sell his mansion in Chicago.

This wouldn’t be news-breaking material per se since celebrities regularly flip their homes.

What makes it surprising is MJ has been trying to offload this particular home for ten years at this point.

And now he’s even offering a complete set of Air Jordans to sweeten the deal.

Located in the suburbs of Chicago, the 7-acre compound offers 56,000 square feet of usable space and it is basically a shrine to MJ.

The gate, for example, was custom built for MJ and has the number ’23’ welded on it.

Outside Michael Jordan’s mansion you’ll find a tennis court, a round infinity pool with a grass island in the middle, a fish pond, and a golf course.

The property was built from scratch for the former NBA star and it shows.

Inside, among other things, you’ll find a full-size basketball court complete the iconic ‘Jumpman’ silhouette in the middle.

The main dining room is adorned with what is perhaps the quirkiest feature of the house: a dinner table decorated with a grid based on the streets of Baghdad, Iraq.

Why did the six-time NBA champion choose Baghdad of all cities? We’re not sure, but it’s yet another feature that makes the home unique.

So what exactly is wrong with the house?

A couple of things.

First, it’s very expensive.

It was originally listed for $29 million and even though the price has dropped several times, it is still by far the most expensive home in the area, priced at $14.85 million.

Plus, lest we forget, it costs around $120,000 per year in property taxes.

Second, the home has ‘Michael Jordan’ written all over it, and this may deter buyers who’d rather purchase something they can decorate themselves.

Bruce Bowers of Bowers Realty Group, the firm that holds the listing, hit the nail right on the head.

“It’s clearly [Michael Jordan’s] home,” he said. “There’s a lot of work that would have to be done to make it your own.”
