After 3 years, Michael Jordan still can't sell his Highland Park manor

Michael Jordan's massive Highland Park mansion is for sale, and has been for nearly three years.

The nine-bedroom, 17-bathroom, 32,000-square-foot palace was first listed on Leap Day of 2012 at a whopping $29 million. Since then, the home has gone through a gauntlet of price reductions to bring it to its current asking price of $16 million.

It's not surprising that this home hasn't attracted a buyer—the market for North Shore estates designed and curated for an egomaniacal athlete has to be pretty small. The place comes furnished with many of the eccentric possessions that Jordan accrued over the years. An NBA regulation basketball court, a custom table modeled after the city of Baghdad, the doors from the original Playboy Mansion in Chicago and front gates bearing "23" are just a few of the lavish details.

Jordan bought the seven-acre property in 1991, and completed construction on the home in 1995. In 2013, he paid more than $183,000 in property tax on the place, which is enough money to buy a navy warship.
