HIGHLAND PARK, IL (RNN) – What will six NBA Championships, two Olympic gold medals and a record high scoring average of 30.1 points per game buy you?

A house to match no other.

But if you don't have the rings or the records, you can still have the house.

No. 23's Highland Park, IL, home is going up for auction this month.

The 56,000 square foot home nestled on more than 7 acres of land near Chicago features nine bedrooms, 19 baths and is move-in ready. The immaculate furniture comes with the home.

It has everything you'd expect from the NBA's greatest player to date – including a regulation-size, cushioned hardwood basketball court and a full fitness center, which, spoiler alert, puts your local YMCA to shame.

When Jordan wasn't on the court, he was on the course. And the home features a putting green where MJ worked on his short game.

If golf isn't your game, the home comes with a tennis court or, for relaxing, a pool with an island green in the center.

The home is guarded by evergreens that line the property, providing a secluded feel.

Jordan moved into the home in 1994, but told the Wall Street Journal he's selling it because "(My) kids are grown now and I don't need a large house in Chicago … It was time for some warmer weather down at my new home in Florida."

Jordan also owns homes in Jupiter Beach, FL, in North Carolina, where he owns a basketball team, and in Utah.

The Chicago house originally listed for $29 million.

It will go to the highest bidder on Nov. 22.
