Kobe Bryant Californian McMansion Sells for a Record Price

It was no slam dunk, but after four price drops and two years on the market, Kobe Bryant just set a price record with the sale of his California mansion. In fact, Bryant broke the previous record by over a million bucks, adding to his already impressive career.

The Los Angeles Lakers guard sold his home, complete with a shark tank, and other cool features for 6.1 million dollars.

Take a peek inside and see why it's worth so much! The 87-hundred square foot home was initially listed at 8.5 million in 2013, but ended up fetching 6.1 and some change. MLS records show it's the most ever paid for a home in the Newport Coast enclave.

So what justified the price tag? Perhaps it was the home theater? Or the pool are with unobstructed views of all of Newport Coast? Or the 850 square foot gym. There's a hair salon, outdoor kitchen, four bedrooms and 5 and a half baths. And maybe letting go of his mansion will help him ride off into the sunset, as Bryant himself reportedly told the L.A. Lakers' general manager, next season will be his last.
