Michael Jordan's nine bedroom, 15 bathroom home is on the market and no doubt some of his well-heeled fans will battle for it at auction.

SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES (SEPTEMBER 11, 2009) (REUTERS) - Want to live like a basketball Hall of Fame legend? Michael Jordan's Chicago mansioncould be yours -- if you can afford to bid on the 56,000-square-foot abode.

Jordan's mansion has a regulation-size basketball court, a "gentlemen's retreat," and full wet bar. Mr. Jordan says he doesn't need such a big house now that his three children are grown-up.

The former Chicago Bulls basketball star's home was previously for sale for $29 million. Live bidding for the house begins on Monday night (12/16).

Jordan now owns the Charlotte Bobcats NBA team.
