The No. 23 is one of the most recognizable numbers in sports history, but those bidding on Michael Jordan's mansion in Chicago, Ill., will certainly need to count a bit higher. Well, much higher. Jordan, an NBA Hall of Famer and owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, is putting his home in the Highland Park district up for auction on Nov. 22. The home was previously offered at 29 million. The nine-bedroom, 15-bathroom estate offers 56,000 square feet on 7.39 "immculately lanscaped" acres. Not enough? Well, consider the fact that there's a kitchen that looks like it's from the year 2250, a outdoor pool with a lavish waterfall, a wine cellar, a chipping and putting green and, of course, an NBA-quality full-length basketball court. There might even be a full-fledged golf course hidden somewhere in the backyard, though the real estate company does not list that as a top amenity. If any bidders out there need a tour before placing a bid on the place, the real agency responsible for the estate, Baird & Warner, even put together a high-definition, nine-minute video on the basketball haven. That's right, when you're considered one of the world's greatest athletes, you get a short documentary when selling your home: Going to great lengths to provide some perspective on the home, former Jordan teammate and current Bulls assistant GM Randy Brown details the early title years and "The Breakfast Club" -- a gorup including Jordan, Brown and Scottie Pippen -- that would meet at the house to work out and play before practices. Why was it called "The Breakfast Club," you might ask? "A chef was there," Brown said. "It was easy for us to go work out and then have breakfast with the chef. The video also makes no mention of the future for the No. 23 on the gates, so odds are, if you place the winning bid on this home, you can just leave it up there and start your own breakfast club. Personal chef (probably) sold separately.
