Michael Jordan has convinced many sports fans that he is the best basketball player in history. But it looks like the NBA Hall of Famer has had trouble convincing buyers to purchase his massive Chicago-area home.

Jordan first listed his 32,683-square-foot home for $29 million back in 2012. But after failing to find a buyer, the Chicago Bulls legend slashed the price down to $16 million in 2014, according to ABC News. Now he's asking for $14.855 million for the nine-bedroom, 17-bathroom home.

Jordan's home features many luxurious amenities, including a cigar room, tennis court, circular infinity pool, and a regulation-sized basketball court, according to the real estate listing on Redfin. The listing price of $14.855 million is significant, as each digit in that price adds up to 23, the number Jordan wore in both the NBA and at his alma mater UNC-Chapel Hill.
