    $18,500 a month

    Legendary NBA coach Pat Riley is making a play in the real estate game by putting his longtime beachfront Malibu home up for rent for $18,500 a month. Riley and his wife purchased the oceanfront abode on July 14, 1989 for $1,600,000, back when ‘Riles’ was still winning championships with the Showtime Lakers in L.A. Since then, Riley has moved onto more NBA titles in Miami, first as head coach and more recently as Team President of the Heat, which might mean he’s spending less time on the West Coast.

    The home is located within an exclusive gated enclave off of Broad Beach Road, and has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms,  plus an office where Riley likely spent many late hours breaking down the Celtics defense or writing plays for the likes of Magic Johnson, while waves crashed a few feet away.

    The floor plan includes a large living room with fireplace, open kitchen, and walls of glass for great, natural light. Outside, expansive patios have limitless views of the Pacific Ocean. Riley and his wife won’t be missing the summer in Malibu, though, as the rental isn’t available until September 1, 2013.

    Even when they do rent it out, they won’t be going far. They also own the house two doors down, which has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2,088 square feet. They paid $7,000,000 for it in February 2007.

      No Practice Necessary To Score Allen Iverson’s Former Home – Just About $3 Million Dollars

      Most Known For

      Tattooed, NBA All Star and prolific scorer

      Home Stats

      6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 8,141 square feet, 1.91 acres



      For Allen Iverson, the undersized but uber-talented former NBA All Star, it’s been a rough few months dealing with a recent divorce, losing a child custody battle, and a foreclosure on his Atlanta mansion. One could say that AI has left as many homes behind as he did defenders with his legendary cross over, which makes even the great Michael Jordan look bad.

      Two of his former homes have recently hit the market. One is a beautiful home in the Villanova, PA area, and the other is listed here, which is an amazing property in Gladwyne, PA.

      The Gladwyne property is gorgeous, but has a bit of an infamous reputation (like Allen Iverson’s play on the basketball court). It’s the same location where he hid out in 2002 after allegedly threatening two men with a handgun in a Philadelphia apartment, while searching for his wayward wife.

      Considered one of the finest estates in the Philadelphia suburbs, his Gladwyne mansion is in cherry condition and recently renovated. The 1.91 acre lot is on an exclusive street in a prime area and features completely manicured grounds as you make your way up the private driveway. Visitors will be greeted by a voluminous, two-story reception hall that would be reminiscent of a basketball court if it weren’t for the custom finishes and marble floors.

      There’s an elegant living room with a fireplace that features palladium windows and custom wood floors while the formal dining room is perfect for low key evenings or more formal dinners.

      Any chef would be impressed with the kitchen, featuring wood-mode cabinetry, butler’s pantry, an expansive center island, and granite counters throughout, while being connected to a spacious breakfast room with views of the pool.

      The family room features another fireplace and has additional custom wood floors that seem to bring the home together, while also offering French doors that lead to the deck and backyard.

      You’ll find beautiful, custom, vaulted ceilings in the renovated library, which would be a perfect place to lose yourself in a book or review game tapes for your next NBA opponent.

      On the 2nd floor is a luxurious master suite with a sitting room, walk-in custom closets and marble bathroom. Throughout the floor you will find four additional large bedrooms with bathrooms.

      Despite the posh set-up throughout the rest of the house, it’s perhaps the lower level that will provide the most enjoyment, with features such as a home theater, exercise room, playroom and finally a wine cellar and tasting room. NBA All Star or not, it would be hard to miss a shot at this amazing property.

        NBA Baller Chris Bosh is showing us the literal meaning of the term now that his Pacific Palisades home has hit the rental market for $45,000 a month, according to The Real Estalker. The NBA star who currently dribbles for the Miami Heat is away from this home so frequently that it’s time to temporarily give it up to some well-heeled renters for a while. But don’t cry for Chris, he has an incredible Miami mansion that he and his wife bought in September 2010 for $12,333,000. That home is a gated and glassy 12,368 square foot modern mansion on the water.

        Chris’ for-lease place is a real palace in the Palisades. For a mere $45,000 a month, you’ll get a wonderful ocean-view gated estate on approximately an acre-and-a-half. Secluded at the top of a knoll, the home has spectacular unobstructed views of the gorgeous Pacific Ocean and mountains. The outdoor area is punctuated with a resort-style infinity pool with swim up bar and lounge areas. A huge outdoor eating area features a full outdoor kitchen with pizza oven. There’s even an outdoor shower and large flat grassy area, perfect for extravagant entertaining. Inside, you’ll find a movie theatre, bar area with billiards, basically a total sports bar within the house.

        The home is perfect for the CEO-type, with it’s ultra-luxurious office/library. Last but not least, the home has a huge master suite with dual master baths with huge walk-in closets and large ocean view balcony with spa off the master.

        For those who need a little extra help around the (giant) house, this lease comes with fully-equipped staff quarters.

            Home Stats

            6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 8,114 square feet



            Los Angeles basketball legend Elgin Baylor is selling his longtime Beverly Hills mansion for $4,250,000. According to public records, the Hall of Famer purchased this home on March 25, 1992 for $1,445,248. It has 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and clocks in at 8,114 square feet. Baylor has been a longtime Los Angeles resident. He played 13 seasons as a forward for the Lakers and then to the other Los Angeles hoops team – the Clippers – where he spent 22 seasons as General Manager. He was relieved of his duties shortly before the 2008-2009 season. In February 2009, Baylor filed an employment discrimination lawsuit against the Clippers, team owner Donald Sterling, team president Andy Roeser, and the NBA. He alleged that he was underpaid during his tenure with the team and then fired because of his age and race. His claim was later rejected in court.

            Since his retirement from basketball, Baylor has maintained a low profile and likely spent a great deal of time in his beautiful home. Now for sale, the estate is perfectly positioned for maximum views of the City of Angels.  The 8,114 square foot estate rests comfortably on a private road, just steps away from Trousdale Estates. The home features 6 bedrooms, all with their own private bathroom. The home has a 1,600 square foot grand room that could also double as a home theater/game room. Multiple decks and every single room offers straight shot views of downtown Los Angeles. High ceilings, hardwood floors and a gourmet kitchen are just some of the amenities of Baylor’s beautiful home

              Ray Allen, formerly a megastar on the Boston Celtics, has migrated south to the warmer climate of Miami and started shooting hoops for the Heat. A new team and a new city means one thing for Allen – he must sell the baller-worthy Massachusetts mansion he and his family used to call home. According to Curbed, the semi-empty home has just hit the market with a price tag of $5.2 million.

              This swank Wellesley mansion was the Allen residence since he joined the Celtics in 2007. And just like the 6’5 hoops star, the home is large! It clocks in at 11,093 square feet. In all that square footage, you’ll find nine bedrooms, nine and a half bathrooms and four stories of stunning house on 1.44 acres.

              The home features a wood-paneled library, a 12-seater home theater, a statement foyer with curved walls and a beautiful staircase. The gated property also features impressive grounds and a six-car garage with 10 space carport.

                Brooklyn-Bound Johnson D’s-Up His Atlanta Mansion

                Joe Johnson

                Atlanta, Georgia

                Most Known For

                NBA All Star

                Home Stats

                13,882 square feet, 8 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms



                On July 2nd, NBA All Star Joe Johnson was traded to the Brooklyn Nets, after spending 7 quality seasons in Atlanta with the Hawks. Now he’s putting his palatial Atlanta area home on the market and going all-in on becoming part of Brooklyn’s first NBA basketball franchise. And who can blame him? Maybe it was the thought of Jay-Z being the minority owner? Or the idea of creating a new basketball super power right in the backyard of the New York Knicks? Either way the $90 million of mad scrilla left on the next 4 years of his contract certainly makes moving an easy decision from a financial standpoint.

                So what is Joe leaving behind? Well the Hawks might not be in good shape, but his expansive home sure is a gem. Settled on over an acre of land the European-style home is 13,822 square feet and features 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms and welcomes visitors to the home with a dramatic 2 story foyer and cathedral ceiling. The kitchen alone includes a breakfast room, large granite-topped island and a walk-in pantry. Other spaces throughout the house include computer, media, recreation, family and living rooms, as well as a library, den, gym and wet bar for entertaining. And after all that you can settle into a large dining room with room for more than 12 people, wood floors and expansive 10 foot ceiling.

                The amaziness that is Joe Johnson‘s former home isn’t limited to indoors. Once you head into the back yard you will encounter myriad additional features that solidify this home’s status as a luxury retreat. Walk onto the deck and notice the carefully tended garden, baller-status grill, hot tub, spa and built-in pool including pool house. And if you want to work up a sweat before hitting the pool you can hit the ball around on the private tennis court.

                Maybe he’s crazy for selling this place, but you have to wonder where a man used to this lifestyle will settle once he arrives in the Big Apple. Perhaps he wants to pick up Derek Jeter’s old pad for a cool $17.95 million? With his average pre-tax salary in the $1.7 million per month range, a host of New York rental opportunities become very affordable. For $45,000 per month Johnson could choose this massive, lower-Manhattan flat, or perhaps he wants to be close to the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn? If so, he’ll find rentals to be exceedingly less expensive, like this 2 bedroom apartment that is just minutes from his “office” at the arena and will set him back a paltry in comparison, $5,500 per month.

                One thing we know for certain, Johnson will be playing on an exciting team come 2012, and likely living in style.

                  Home Stats

                  7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 13,000 square feet, in-ground grotto and shark tank



                  NBA baller, Gilbert Arenas, is looking to bounce-pass his Great Falls, Virginia property to a buyer who may also have an affinity for a seductive in-ground grotto and shark tank. Price tag for a house with those unique features? Only $3.5M. A lot for the average Joe or Jane, but it’s pocket change for a professional athlete who once signed a $111 million dollar contract. After some personal missteps on and off the court, Arenas has found his career in relative “no man’s land.” This means it’s time to sell the shark tank-laden mansion that costs the baller a small fortune to maintain each month.

                  Aside from moving in some scary dorsal-finned roommates, Arenas also spent about a million clams creating a custom-built grotto and pool with a waterslide. Perfect for the kind of parties that many professional athletes are so (in)famous for.

                  The seven bedroom, ten bath home spans over 13,000 square feet of space. According to the listing language, the “expansive, grand home is sited on an exquisite gated lot.” Aside from the sultry outdoor entertaining areas, the interior features soaring ceilings, gleaming cherry floors, custom details throughout, grand entertaining spaces and comfortable family living space. If your personal interests include both grotto-sitting AND cooking, this home could be the one for you, as it features a chef’s kitchen with large breakfast room. In true baller fashion, this home is the ultimate playground.

An outdoor cigar terrace adjoins the “gentlemen’s lounge” with theatre, and the home features an extraordinary kitchen with every top-of-the-line amenity.

                    The estate is gated and situated on a .58 acre lot, with a 3 car garage and extended parking space on a Chinese quartzite driveway.
