Flush with a net worth of an estimated $500 million, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is already preparing for his post-basketball life.
The four-time NBA champion helps run a production company in Hollywood and has earned millions after buying into the Blaze Pizza restaurant chain before it blew up.
James, 36, could also find himself as a major power player in the housing community. According to the Los Angeles Times, his former Miami mansion just recently sold for $12.75 million. James originally purchased the estate for $9 million when he was a member of the Heat back in 2010. He ultimately sold it for $13.4 million five years later after returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The mansion is absolutely amazing.
The details are even more eye-opening.
- half-acre lot overlooking Biscayne Bay
- Swim-up bar in pool
- Dock that could fit two 60-foot yachts
- 12,000 square-foot three-story main house with a one-story guest residence
- Gym, game room, movie theater, win cellar, wet bar
LeBron James and real estate
Getting into real estate is nothing new for LeBron James. Back in September of 2020, James purchased a Beverley Hills mansion from the estate of late “The Bold and Beautiful” co-creator Lee Phillip Bell for a cool $37 million. Said residence includes eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a guest pool house. Yes, that’s a thing. Two years ago, he also bought a Brentwood area mansion for $23 million.
It’s by now well known that top-end NBA stars have their hands in a ton of things off the court. An executive producer in the movie industry and influencer in other aspects of the financial sector, James seems to stand above the rest.
