It's been more than three years since Michael Jordan listed his sprawling Highland Park manor. The home was originally listed on Leap Day 2012 for $29 million. The listed price has continued to plummet since. It dropped again this week to a price of $14.855 million.

The nine-bedroom, 17-bathroom, 32,000-square-foot mansion would be perfect for a multi-millionaire who really, really wants to "be like Mike." The place contains an NBA regulation basketball court, the doors from the original Playboy mansion in Chicago, a custom table modeled after the city of Baghdad and a huge "23" attached to the front gate. Let's not forget the putting green and cigar room. There's probably a mini casino in there as well. 

With more than $180,000 in annual property tax, the home's massive price cuts are not surprising. It will be interesting to see just how low the listed price will drop. 

Jordan bought the seven-acre property in 1991, the same year as his first NBA championship. Construction was completed on the place in 1995, just in time for him to try his hand at baseball and star in Space Jam.
