The House That Lebron Built

This has little to do with the Dodgers, but made me wish I stayed with my once promising street hockey career. Lebron's got LeBling, and is spending it in style. From SI:

LeBron James' 35,440-square-foot house is shaping up as a castle fit for a king -- with a theater, bowling alley, casino and barber shop. A first-floor master suite, which includes a two-story walk-in closet, will be about 40 feet wide and 56 feet long -- bigger than half the houses in Bath Township.

The house has a dining hall, roughly 27 feet by 27 feet, a "great room" at 34 feet by 37 feet and a bigger, two-story "grand room." The "family foyer" off the six-car garage near the elevator will be dwarfed by a "grand foyer" inside the front entrance with a sweeping, divided staircase leading to four second-story bedrooms. An outer wall will feature a limestone sculpture -- a bas-relief of LeBron's head, wearing his trademark headband.

An In House Casino? Something tells me that making the dealer bust is less exciting when it's YOUR F-ING MONEY! (Does the Donald gamble in Trump Tower?) Lebron says his goal is to be the first billionare in sports, which explains the addition of a barber shop to his house. Those guys at Supercuts make mad bank. Look for MTV to produce an entire season of Lebron's Crib, including the harrowing episode where a crew member plummets to his death inside the closet.
