Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass and reporter Jenniffer Weigel discuss whether Michael Jordan’s mansion is worth its hefty price. The NBA legend is asking for $16 million despite a failed auction that listed the minimum reserve price at $13 million.
The property includes nine bedrooms, 19 bathrooms and an NBA-regulation basketball court, not to mention a weight room, a three-bedroom guesthouse, pool, outdoor tennis court and three climate-controlled multi-car garages. Jordan bought the land in 1991 and moved into the home in 1994.
Jordan decided to auction off the Illinois property, because “some of the best things in the world are sold at auction, and I’ve seen that this is the beginning of a trend for selling unique, one-of-a-kind homes.”
