In summer 2018, legendary basketball player LeBron James signed a four-year, $153 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, signaling his officialВ departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers and his hometown of Akron, Ohio. Prior to the switch, James bought a sizable mansion in Los Angeles's upscale Brentwood neighborhood for a cool $23 million, adding another home to his already impressive real estate portfolio, which includes another L.A. mansion and his Akron home.
Dubbed a "masterpiece of light and design" byВ Trulia, the eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom estate boasts an ultra-modern aesthetic, complete with marble countertops and walls,В natural French oak floors sourced from Spain, and a neutral color palette of all white. Built in 2017, the property houses a gated driveway, a custom chef's kitchen, showroom-level walk-in closets, a private patio in the master bedroom, a rooftop terrace, a theater room, aВ wine cellar, a cigar lounge, an onyx bar, an indoor/outdoor gym, a spa (complete with steam room, sauna, shower, and massage room), an oversize pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen, guest quarters, and an "auto gallery"-a fancy name for a garage.

Mike Mancias, LeBron's trainer for 16 years, told Men's Health that the basketball star's workout has a few phases, so he needed a home gym with ample storage for his foam rollers, mats, and balance balls.
