HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. -- Michael Jordan's longtime personal residence in suburban Chicago is for sale for $29 million.

The sprawling estate is in Highland Park, along Lake Michigan, and has more than 56,000 square feet of living space.

That includes nine bedrooms, 15 baths and five fireplaces.

There's also a three-bedroom guesthouse, pool area, outdoor tennis court and three climate-controlled multi-car garages.

An indoor basketball complex features a full-size regulation court with specially cushioned hardwood flooring and competition-quality high intensity lighting. It has a sound system set up to provide perfect acoustics within the court space.

The property was put on the market Wednesday by Katherine Chez-Malkin of Baird & Warner Real Estate.

LOL!

I love your headline and I’m going to steal it, but that’s not the real headline you know. :)

Bedrooms with separate baths for each person?

Also possibly “baths” that are just for voiding waste material?

Free Republic has a rule that you not change the headline. They do not want the same article reposted multiple times under the different titles.

If you mean you do not understand why more bathrooms than bedrooms...

56,000 square feet

That is the reason. When you got to go, you don't want to run a 1/4 mile trying to squeeze cheeks or hold your knees together.

Money, yes.
House, no.

After your athletic career is over, it still costs money to maintain it and the cheques you’re bringing in are usually insufficient to keep going as you’re used to.

Biggest mistake these over-priced athletes keep making is buying a house they cannoe afford to keep once their career winds down.

It would be interesting to know what his income is today. I suspect he still has some ties to Nike and others.

He’s been known to go to go to high-end casinoes and lay down 100 grand bets without thinking about it. From what I know of him, that’s probably his only real vice in life. He’s not known for being a bad boy otherwise.

But there are only so many 100 grand bets you can lay before it starts to become real money.
