The Coolest NBA Homes for Sale

0 comments
There’s how the other half lives, and then there’s how basketball stars live. And, if you have the same kind of cash to throw around, you can live exactly the same way. NBA players go through several sets of digs from when they get their first taste of a contract salary (and buy that flashy urban party pad) to when they put down roots and start a family (and buy that equally flashy mansion in the sticks). For better or for worse, that means you will have plenty of chances to buy up a property once owned by your favourite player, or at least have plenty of opportunities to dream about it. Here are five properties recently listed by basketball players for you to consider investing in—or simply to drool over.
 
 
 
Stephen Curry giving up the high life

Price: $1.695 million
Location: Oakland, California

There are indeed high rises in Oakland, and the one in which Stephen Curry is selling his two-storey penthouse is actually the only one in the area. Located at Jack London Square and measuring in at a modest 2,084-square-feet, the $1.695 million condo has got three bedrooms and four bathrooms. However, the amazing view of the city and bay is what you’d truly be paying for, made possible by floor-to-ceiling windows sprawled throughout, as well as three balconies and a patio with a gas fireplace. A concierge, fitness center and pool are among the building’s shared amenities, although you wouldn’t be sharing many walls of this corner unit with your neighbours. Three parking spaces round out the listing.

 
 

Larry Bird lists his Naples home
Price: $4.8 million
Location: Naples, Florida

At four bedrooms, six bathrooms and 6,000-square-feet of living space, you’d think this custom mansion listed by Larry Bird, president of the Indian Pacers and No. 30 in ESPN’S SportCentury’s 50 Greatest Athletes of the 20th Century, wouldn’t need to bank on unique amenities, but just in case: it includes his personal driveway basketball hoop as a bonus.That’s on top of a 10-seat media room, 500-gallon saltwater aquarium and an infinity pool boasting a thatched-roof tiki hut (so not only can you shoot hoops like him, you can relax like a baller, too). It’s also in the great Naples neighbourhood known as Park Shore, where Bird has lived for over 10 years in the company of celebrities such as American novelist Robin Cook.

 
 

Kevin Garnett selling Concord mega-mansion
Price: $4.85 million
Location: Concord, Massachusetts

Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Garnett’s home in Concord puts most others to shame at a whopping 11,000-square-feet of living room, and it could be yours for $4.85 million. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion is situated on 13 acres, and features a wine cellar, media room and personal gym in the lower level. On the main living floors, it also boasts spacious ceilings throughout, as well as plenty of windows, storage space and a four-car garage. Furthermore, the home has already received some notoriety: it’s been cited for excellence by the Boston Society of Architects, and has been featured in Metropolitan Home and Architectural Record. It’s ground-breaking design is attributed to award-winning architects at Machado and Silvetti Associates.

 
 

Kevin Durant is downsizing (sort of)
Price: $1.95 million
Location: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Situated on just over one acre and measuring in at 5,545-square-feet, Kevin Durant’s recently-listed residence commands a relatively more modest $1.95 million asking price. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom split-level was built in 2001 a stone’s throw from OKC’s Gaillardia Golf & Country Club. It features vaulted ceilings, hardwood flooring and a large, two-bedroom guest house sharing that back area with a massive pool. Don’t worry, Durant won’t be missing it anytime soon: he just bought a pair of abuting brownstones near the Chesapeake Energy Arena downtown for around $1.769 million, and he plans to combine them into a 7,400-square-foot flat. Now that’s what we call downsizing.

 
 

Khloé Kardashian kicks Lamar Odom out, lists mansion
Price: $3 million
Location: Tarzania, California

Things aren’t going too well for Clippers’ forward Lamar Odom, who was charged in August with allegedly driving under the influence in California (he recently plead not guilty), and may also be facing a costly divorce with his reality star wife, Khloé Kardashian. Now their home is also on the chopping block, after Kardashian kicked him out amid rumours of him cheating on her. The two have shared this mansion for four years, and all 8,347-square-feet of it are now for sale, including seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The mansion is located on 0.75 acres at the head of a gated cul-de-sac, which is great for privacy, and sports a massive pool out back and enough parking for 15 vehicles up front. Odom, buddy: we know things are going rough, but you will always be two championship rings and NBA Sixth Man of the Year in our hearts.
