Michael Jordan is slashing prices on his Chicago-area home, reminding the world what true comfort means. 

Spotted by Eric Goldschein of Sports Grid, Jordan's house in Highland Park is now being offered for $21 million, a price the website notes is $8 million less than was posted in February 2012. 

Really, at that price, you would be foolish not to put in a bid. 

Thankfully, we have the following stunning images from Realtor.com to remind us that Jordan is no mere mortal. Men of his caliber simply live in houses that are more akin to palatial estates. 

Only NBA legends have their number retired as well as emblazoned over their entrance gate. 

Some were fortunate enough to grow up with a basketball hoop in the backyard. Jordan took that one step further by fashioning his own full-court gym. 

This kind of makes your game room with the foosball table seem lame by comparison. 

Of course there is a gym, pool, tennis court, putting green and what looks to be a small lake on the property. 

Now for the specifics of this monster of a mansion. There are nine bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, which pretty much answers the obvious question of "Do you have a spare bathroom I might use?"

The house—although I am not sure we can really call it that—is a whopping 32,683 square feet and sits atop seven acres of land. 

It seems the easiest way to get a house like this is become the greatest basketball player of all time. If not, you can always save your pennies over a few lifetimes. 

Either way, having a full basketball court at your house remains one of the coolest amenities any homeowner could boast.
