We all know that NBA stars are some of sports’ best-paid athletes. And while they can spend their money on fast cars and luxurious lifestyles, some of these basketball players have also been spending some dough on ridiculously extravagant homes. While the rest of us are making do with cheap bed frames and discount sofas, here’s a look at how some NBA stars are paying for and showing off their incredible home designs.
LeBron James isn’t exactly a shy guy. And so it’s pretty apt that the Cleveland Cavaliers star can be found enjoying life in his outrageous $9.2 million mansion in Akron, Ohio. With no less than six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, a movie theatre, and a recording studio within its 30,000 square foot confines, it shows that LeBron James isn’t afraid to display his immense wealth.
Chris Bosh is currently deciding his next career move after his time with the Miami Heat ended due to health concerns, and will have a tricky decision of whether to sell his $12.3 million Miami Beach mansion. With an infinity pool, an indoor elevator, and a stylish white interior, it nearly makes you forget that Bosh also has another home in California – a stunning $9.4 million villa in Pacific Palisades complete with its own swim-up bar.
Although these NBA stars’ homes are undeniably extravagant, it’s clear that the sheer size of these athletes means that they have a tendency to require common household items that are a little larger than normal.
Take the huge bed belonging to Al Jefferson. As the former star stands well over two metres tall, it’s not surprising to find that he’ll need a supersized bed that’s a little more extravagant than some of the cost-effective bed frames that you would find on websites from companies like Bedstar.
And we can only imagine the size of bed that would be found inside Deron Williams’ Manhattan penthouse. With a price tag of $15.8 million, it shows that this ex-Brooklyn Nets star was really keen to get a New York apartment with its own exclusive lily pond. But as the Deron Williams is now outside the NBA, we’re thinking that he might have to downsize a little.
So whether it’s having a swim-up bar, dozens of bedrooms, or even just an entire home recording studio, it shows that NBA stars are happy spending their huge incomes on even bigger places to live.
