Perhaps The Last Dance documentary that served as a refresher course for Michael Jordan's greatness can help the Chicago Bulls legend sell his home.

As Darren Rovell of Action Network noted, His Airness has attempted to sell his Chicago home for eight years. The home that was originally listed at $29 million is now listed at just less than $14.9 million:

Michael Jordan has unsuccessfully tried to sell his Chicago area home for the last eight years. It started at $29 million. It is now listed for $14,855,000. 1+4+8+5+5 = 23 https://t.co/YwwpREwU0h

Dan Gartland of Sports Illustrated noted the house that was first listed in February 2012 for $29 million failed to sell at auction in November 2013 with a minimum bid of $13 million.

According to the Zillow listing, the 32,683-square-foot house has nine bedrooms and an astounding 19 bathrooms. It sits on a 56,000-square-foot property and features a regulation-sized basketball court, circular infinity pool, putting green, tennis court and cigar room.

Jordan's No. 23 is right on the front gate, and his logo is midcourt on the basketball floor.

You know, just in case an interested buyer forgot who owns the house.
