CHICAGO — Michael Jordan is having such a hard time selling his massive $14.9 million mansion that a new deal is being offered.

The New York Daily News reported that the real estate agency handling the sale is offering a pair of every Air Jordan ever to whoever buys it.
The nine-bedroom 56,000-square-foot suburban Chicago mansion has been on the market for about three years. But Jordan just can’t seem to sell it.

Jordan designed the home 20 years ago, 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.
