Michael Jordan may be a basketball legend — but he’s no whiz at selling real estate. His mega-estate outside of Chicago has been on the market since 2012, and just saw its price slashed to $14.855 million, down from an original ask of $29 million.

The new asking price is Jordan’s lucky number — the digits add up to 23, the iconic jersey number he wore during his storied career.

The 56,000-square-foot house is located in Highland Park on 7.4 acres, and features an NBA-quality basketball court, a putting green, a tennis court, and a  wrought iron gate with “23” across the front, according to the New York Post. The home has a total of nine bedrooms and fifteen bathrooms.

The Agency’s CEO Mauricio Umansky and its sports and entertainment division director Kofi Nartey share the listing with Katherine Malkin of Baird & Warner. [NYP] — Tess Hofmann
