HIGHLAND PARK, IL (AP) -- Michael Jordan's longtime personal residence in suburban Chicago is for sale for $29 million.

The sprawling estate is in Highland Park, along Lake Michigan, and has more than 56,000 square feet of living space. That includes nine bedrooms, 15 baths and five fireplaces. There's also a three-bedroom guesthouse, pool area, outdoor tennis court and three climate-controlled multi-car garages.

An indoor basketball complex features a full-size regulation court with specially cushioned hardwood flooring and competition-quality high intensity lighting. It's also got a sound system set up to provide perfect acoustics within the court space.

The property was put on the market Wednesday by Katherine Chez-Malkin of Baird & Warner Real Estate.

Perhaps

it will be sold as the future residence of the current White House occupant who will require new family quarters in January. He's from Chicago; he likes to shoot hoops.

Guest house could serve as Secret Service quarters.

We can hope for change before it is too late.

Anyone here want George Bush

And this is news?

I was just saying to myself the other day, I have to start looking for a $29,000,000 house as I am getting bored with my other 28,000,000 million dollar house. It must be a slow day in the newsroom, eh?

Knock it down to $28,000,000

Knock it down to $28,000,000 and we'll talk!
