    What's the matter? Jupiter's not good enough for Michael Jordan?

    Instead of building on the two lots he bought at the Bears Club last year, the retired basketball superstar took a 30-year mortgageand is playing house in modest suburban Miami with his new galpal, Cuban model Yvette Prieto.

    Must be love!

    According to Miami-DadeCounty records, the 30-year-old hottie and Air Jordan now co-own a home in the Highlands at Kendall gated community near the Magic City.

    It's a small humble thing, compared to what the 46-year-old Jordan is used to. Property appraiser records list the three-bedroom home at 5,500 square feet.

    But it's anonymous enough. None of the neighbors called by Page2Live realize that the six-time NBA champion is on thedeed of the SW 92nd Terrace two-story villa.

    Said the sexy-voiced Prieto: "I can't talk about the house just yet. Sorry."

    The lovebirds, last spotted together at the NBA All-Star game in Phoenix Feb. 15, paid a down market $281,000 for it.

    They took out a 30-year,$196,000-mortagage. Yep. One of the best-paid basketball players ever actually went to Suntrust Mortgage for the cash.

    Why? Probably because Prieto, who's also a mortgage holder, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2002. It took her two years to gether finances straightened.

    Jordan, who's managing member of basketball operations with the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, bought two empty lots atJupiter's fancy Bears Club for a total $4.8 million but seems to have no plan to build in the immediate futurethere.

    Except for her place on the arm once divorced Jordan, little is known about the woman and very few modeling pictures are available. Staterecords list her as a principal of three companies based in Miami: Aqua Management LLC, a small management company for gated communities; Mina's jewelry,her family's jewelry business; and Lakshmi Aromatherapy Spa in Coral Gables.

    The Bobcats refused to make Jordan available for a chat.

    I'd buy a broad a house though, if I was that paid. Why not? He has to know by now that women aren't getting with him because he's a super cool,sharp-dressed guy. He probably bought her the crib so she can get out of his face whenever he wants to hit off some other chicks.

    But yeah, Mike's wardrobe has NEVER been what's poppin'. At least he isn't rockin the pirate earring.
