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.

LeBron James

Love him or hate him, he still lives like a King (James):

Price: $11,900,000
Location: Coconut Grove, Florida
Square footage: 12,178
Bedrooms: 6
Baths: 8 full, 1 half

File Under: I don’t think we’re in Cleveland anymore…

Ray Allen

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.

Price: $3,700,000
Location: Carnation, Washington
Square footage: 10,630
Bedrooms: 5
Baths: 6.75

File Under: Between the Emerald City and the Boston Celtics, I was expecting more green.


Michael Jordan

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
Bedrooms: 11

File Under: Abbottabad
