CHICAGO — Michael Jordan has hired a film crew to make a series of advertisements for the $14 million mansion that he’s struggling to sell.

The Daily Mail of London reported that the basketball legend has hired a production crew to produce six advertisements for his nine-bedroom suburban Chicago mansion.

Twenty years ago Jordan designed the 56,000-square-foot home, which includes 19 bathrooms, a PGA-standard putting green and an NBA size basketball court.

The home is on more than seven acres in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park. He bought the land in 1991 with his then-wife and built and moved into the mansion three years later.

Jordan’s original asking price was $29 million, but he has since lowered it to $14,855,000. Add the digits together to see why he picked that number.

Jordan played for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels in college and shot to massive international fame while playing for the Chicago Bulls in the NBA. He is currently the principal owner and chairman of the Charlotte Hornets.
