The star athlete spent $23 million on a brand new home in the swanky Brentwood neighborhood. The home is actually King James' second in LA, in addition to his house in Akron, Ohio.
This purchase clashes with the image LeBron tries to create of the frugal basketball star. Perhaps the Cleveland Cavilers' forward is prudent with other purchases in order to afford his three mansions.
When LeBron isn't shooting hoops, he can feed house guests thanks to his custom chef's kitchen. With a combination of natural French oak and marble on the floor, LeBron can cook in great comfort. Or he can just hire a chef to make him a meal high in protein.
The mansion has 11 bathrooms, including a dual bathroom in the master suite, presumably for LeBron and his wife Savannah Brinson. James and Brinson are high school sweethearts, married in 2013, and have three kids together.
LeBron's main workplace is the hardwood floors at Quicken Loans Arena, but he can get plenty done in his new office. From handling endorsements for Pepsi and Nike to tweaking his sneakers, his new office will get ample use.
LeBron has played himself in an episode of "Entourage" and the movie "Trainwreck." He is also voicing a character in the upcoming animated film "Smallfoot," and rumors have circulated for years about "Space Jam 2" starring James. He can watch these or any film in comfort at his personal movie theater.
In an interview with Business Insider, LeBron said he works out five days a week in the off-season and every day during the NBA season. His home gym is half-indoors, half-outdoors and connects with a steam room, sauna, spa, and massage room to cool down after exercising.
The entire house has plenty of natural light. It's hard to choose if the inside or outside is nicer, but fortunately for LeBron, he doesn't have to pick just one. With sliding pocket doors, the flow between the two spaces is as smooth as a LeBron jump shot.
An oversized pool is a must-have for any $23 million home. The outdoor spa, heated dining loggia, and auto gallery are nice additions. The outdoor kitchen featuring a barbecue and beer taps brings the mansion to MVP status — Most Valuable Property.
Despite spending $23 million on the new house, James is still making some changes. According to TMZ, James is "adding a basketball court, indoor wine tap (dude LOVES his wine), and is working on the paperwork to get a pizza oven ... while also making changes to the theater and pool."
