Go big or go home. That’s legitimately what NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain did during his 63 years of life here on Planet Earth.
The man who once scored 100 points in a single game was a larger than life figure on the basketball court. His 7-foot-1, 275-pound frame towered above opponents who submitted to his every whim. It was like they were somehow shackled in 50 shades territory as Wilt earned two titles and four MVP awards during his career.
Off the court, Wilt was just as legendary. A man who claimed to have tens of thousands of lovers during his life, Chamberlain held up residence in the posh Southern California neighborhood of Bel-Air that Fresh Prince would make popular decades later. Not unlike Will Smith, he brought the “heat” to “real sweet faces.” It’s lyrics from a song, ladies and germs.
Now nearly 20 years after his death, Chamberlain’s old stomping grounds is selling for a whopping $18.99 million.

It includes six bedrooms, six baths and 7,158 square feet of living space as well as multiple swimming and reflective pools. Other amenities include a pool room, television room, chef’s kitchen, breakfast room and a dining room overlooking Bel-Air.
In other words, it’s a perfect bachelor pad.
