With the “heat” of the basketball playoffs in full swing, I thought I would share with you some famous basketball palyers mansions and how much (we collectively) they paid for their luxury homes.
Love him or hate him, he still lives like a King (James):
Location: Coconut Grove, Florida
Square footage: 12,178
Baths: 8 full, 1 half
File Under: I don’t think we’re in Cleveland anymore…

The pain of Boston losing to the Heat (see L. James, above) is perhaps salved by being able to afford this pad in Washington State near Seattle.
Location: Carnation, Washington
Square footage: 10,630
File Under: Between the Emerald City and the Boston Celtics, I was expecting more green.
The biggest name of all time in B-Ball also owns the biggest house. Sorry, mansion. No wait, still wrong again. Compound! I hope Michael Jordan adds a helicopter pad in the walled in dirt court yard (see photo below). You know, for those unexpected midnight fans that might barge in.

Price: $12- $20 million to build
Location: Jupiter, Florida
Square footage: 28,000
File Under: Abbottabad
