Now that LeBron James has gone home to play basketball for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he's selling his other home -- in Miami. The NBA superstar led the Miami Heat to the finals four times before he opted out of his contract and rejoined the Cavs.

James bought his gated, waterfront Miami estate in 2010 for $9 million. Now he has staged and listed it for $17 million. With 12,178 square feet of living space, including some in a detached guesthouse, the listing declares it "the most opulent estate in Miami." It has a huge kitchen, a wine cellar, a movie theater and a private sun deck on the roof accessible from the master bedroom.

Throughout the house, glass doors open to covered terraces overlooking the pool and bay. A concrete dock has parking for two 60-foot yachts. It is an estate fit for King James. The only real question is: Could the 6-foot 8-inch forward fit into any of the home's four bathtubs?

Tomi Rose of Opulence International Realty holds the listing.
