A new poll of NBA fans shows that more than three-quarters think Michael Jordan is the best player in NBA history, and despite his being 52, more than one in three think Jordan could beat Cleveland’s Lebron James one-on-one today.
But there’s one place James beats Jordan hands down, and that’s on home prices.
Jordan is enlisting new representation in a bid to sell his mansion-estate in Highland Park, Ill. The legendary sports figure and Charlotte Hornets majority owner on Thursday relisted the 7.39-acre compound for $14.855 million.
The LA Times reports that the home has previously been offered for as much as much as $29 million in 2012. The 56,000-square-foot home was most recently priced at $16 million.
Built in contemporary style in 1995 and renovated in 2009, the home has nine bedrooms and 15 bathrooms across three stories. Among features are large-scale formal areas, a movie theater and a lounge/retreat complete with a cigar room, a poker room and a wet bar.
The problem for his “Airness” is that “King James” listed his house in Miami for a lot more last fall.
James’ Miami home checked in at 12,178 square feet, replete with 6 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms.
But now that James has left Miami and returned home to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers again, he’s looking to leave Miami behind in more ways than one.
James listed his Miami mansion for $17 million as he takes his talents back to Northern Ohio.
