Talk about a slam dunk!

After five years of dating, former NBA star Michael Jordan, 50, and his model-fiancée, Yvette Prieto, 35, made it official with a wedding in Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday.

About 300 guests arrived by tour buses at an Episcopal church called Bethesda-by-the-Sea, where Donald Trump was married to Melania in 2005.

Jordan then invited guests to join them for the reception at the Bears Club, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course community in Jupiter, Fla., where Jordan recently built a 38,000-square-foot home.

Michael Jordan's Home for Sale at $29 Million

Last year, the property tax bill alone was $165,224. And this year's sales price of Michael Jordan's Highland Park mansion in Illinois? A potential record-setting $29 million.

Mind you, for that price you get not only the home's pedigree, but the NBA champ's nine bedrooms, 19 bathrooms and indoor basketball court, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

On top of a 32,683 sq.-ft. family house built in 1995 (where Michael and Juanita Jordan raised their three children while they were married), the property also includes a guest house, 500-bottle wine cellar and custom wood-trimmed cigar parlor.

"It's such a beautiful house," realtor Katherine Chez Malkin of Baird & Warner, which is representing the sale, tells the Sun-Times. "Every weekend people from all over the world came to see Michael's house."
