Jordan has always been a competitor hungry for winning and has accomplished so many things in his life. However, there is one thing he has remained unsuccessful at. Jordan has been trying to sell off his luxurious Chicago mansion since 2012 and has failed to do so. 

Luxurious might be an understatement if you set your eyes on this piece of land which Jordan specifically asked to be built from scratch. The area spans over 7 acres and the living space is a whopping 56,000 square feet. Jordan initially listed the huge mansion for sale in 2012. He put forth a tag of $29 million, which ended up with no bidders. Then, Jordan again priced it lower, but nobody would bid the minimum amount of $13 million.

The house boasts nine huge bedrooms and 19 bathrooms. So many bathrooms for what purpose, only the Jumpman himself can answer. Coming to the sports aspect, we all know Jordan is a big fan of other sports apart from basketball. He isn’t narrow-minded. He appreciates other sports as well.
