NBA Homewreckers: Playas Lookin for Party Pads in Dallas


Dallas will be non-stop basketball action starting today as the NBA All Star 2010 takes over Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. But that's not all those basketball stars and their entourages will be taking over.

Some homeowners advertised their All-Star pads on Craig's List., mostly condos, hoping to cash in on the event. And weeks ago Dallas Realtors started getting calls from party planners looking for high end, furnished homes on the market to lease for a wild night or two of partying -- some willing to pay up to $100,000 for a weekend crib. The homes had to have generous square footage, bars, heated pools and Jacuzzis, and ideally located near major highways for quick access. The payola was very tempting.
