… At the front of the house is a huge bay window with oversized windows, and there’s enough room over here – again, this place is 24 feet wide – to accommodate two or three full living room sets, and maybe up to four, if you’re willing to really cram the furniture in there, and stack it vertically. (This is a great way to discourage your in-laws from visiting. “We’d love to have you, but we have four full living room sets stacked vertically all the way up to the ceiling. We can’t even open the door, we go in and out with a rope ladder we dangle out the window.”)

Lebron (yes, I’m going to refer to him by his first name) is arguably the most popular athlete on the planet, and one of the richest, too. His Nike deal is rumored to be worth a billion dollars, and the NBA contract he just signed is for $153 million over four years; that breaks down to about half a million dollars per game, or ten grand per minute. What kind of house does a guy like this buy when he moves to one of the most luxurious cities in the world? A pretty nice one. … INSIDE LEBRON JAMES’ $23 MILLION LA MANSION
… “Lots of people call their home a “castle,” but then when you go visit them, they have barbecue sauce-stained wall-to-wall carpeting and the living room centerpiece is a PS4 on a milk crate.
