Michael Jordan, the patron saint of the Chicago Bulls, has just listed his seven-acre Highland Park compound for $29M. Along with a nine-bedroom, 15-bathroom mansion, the property includes, as expected, a full-sized basketball court. With a few exclusions, the contemporary estate, completed in 1995, will be sold furnished, though we have to wonder if that includes the giant number 23 secured to the front gates. On the whole though, despite the immense size of the place and the hotel-like entry, Jordan fares better than most when it comes to decor. Not that the Nike golden boy needs the cash, but that $29M will help to offset the cost of his 2007 divorce, in which his ex-wife received a $168M settlement. Jordan is also currently engaged, and might be wanting to cast off any bad matrimonial karma. Either way, he'll be lucky to find someone willing to fork over that kind of cash. The taxes alone on this 56,000-square-foot spread are a whopping $165K, higher than the median income for this ritzy section of Chicago.
