    Michael Jordan's Highland Park mansion hits the auction block next month after the house failed to attract a buyer at $29 million last year and a discounted $21 million this summer.

    The 56,000-square-foot property is a sight to see, and the "Today" show recently took the first-ever TV tour of the former Chicago Bulls star's Chicago-area mega mansion for a taste of the icon's old digs.

    Willie Geist strolled through the home's many assets: nine bedrooms, beauty salon, gourmet kitchen, workout area that's "larger than the gym I go to at home" and an epic man cave with a cigar vault, card tables and a wine cellar large enough to hold more than 1,000 bottles.

    The amazing home also includes 19 bathrooms, a stocked fishing pool, a private putting green, climate-controlled multi-car garages and an outdoor tennis court.

    The big draw for Geist? The indoor NBA-regulation basketball court. Yes, the "Today" host dunked wearing a No. 23 jersey.

    The house goes to auction Nov. 22. Those who want to bid must pay a handsome $250,000 deposit to opt into the process.
