    He couldn't sell the home after dropping the price from $29 million in 2012 to $8 million in 2013. It's 56,000 square feet and sits on 7.39 acres. You would think it would have sold easily for $8 million to some rich guy who worships Jordan.
    Now he is putting the home up for auction hoping it will finally sell. The auction company made an 8 minute video.

    Seems like a bargain. - Except for all those taxes and maintenance.

    19 bathrooms? Jesus.

    The house looks pretty sick, though - and those doors from the original playboy mansion he had installed? Dude spent some crazy $ on the oddest things.

    If it's such an awesome house, why he did he stop living there?

    It's certainly worth $8 million, the problem is you have to live in the Chicago area. They should try to sell it to one of those people who wont the lottery for $250 million.

    and he should not have gotten rid of the indoor pool. If I ever hit it big in the lottery I am buying a home with an indoor and outdoor pool.

    I think if I had $8m to spend I'd want something by the water, not a highway.

    He still has this place just down the street from Spike Lee's in-laws' Winter getaway in Florida.

    Edit- it's the big gray one.

    At the end of the day, what kind of shits do you take to justify, logically 19 bathrooms? I'm just curious to know what went on in his head when he looked at the plans to build a house and thought, I really NEED and WANT 19 fucking bathrooms.
