We’ve reached the half-way point of the NBA season, which means that it’s time for the All-Star Weekend. When it comes to All-Star Games, the NBA puts on arguably the best show out of the four major sports thanks to the incredibly popular Slam Dunk Contest, Three-Point Shootout, and of course the game itself.
All of the regular faces will be in Toronto this weekend for the festivities. But while all the attention is on the players, local agents in each of the major NBA markets will be working to sell some All-Stars of their own!
Let’s take a look at some of the best properties from different NBA cities around the country and highlight a few that are fit for a baller!
San Antonio - 8011 Fm 621 - $1,465,000
The San Antonio Spurs are heading into the break with one of the best records in the NBA and are considered one of the only teams that has the potential to stop the Golden State Warriors. Much of that is due to the team basketball encouraged by head coach Gregg Popovich.
Pop will also be coaching the Western Conference All-Stars this weekend, but if he were spending the weekend house hunting in San Antonio, he might be interested in this 60-acre estate just about an hour northeast of the city mostly because it would give him plenty of room to avoid all the questions from reporters.
The complex features a main house that contains 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, as well as a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom guesthouse that would be great for hosting friends and former players.
Chicago - 1613 N Honore St - $1,625,000
Jimmy Butler will be representing the Chicago Bulls this weekend. The 26-year-old star shooting guard is putting together another fantastic season, and if he were looking for a new place to live in Chicago, new construction and modern design would definitely fit his personality.
This 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood is a perfect combination of design and location. It’s also big enough to host any friends and family that might be in town for a game. The house is just steps to the blue line, which makes for easy access to pretty much everywhere in Chicago.
Miami - 17201 Collins Ave - $2,799,000
It wouldn’t be much of an All-Star Game without Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in town representing the Miami Heat. And anyone looking for All-Star caliber real estate back in Miami is always going to be focused on those beachfront condos.
This enormous 3,018 square foot condo in Sunny Isles Beach is the perfect option for anyone who enjoys hosting plenty of guests. It boasts 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and brand new marble floors…not to mention the stunning view.
Los Angeles - 901 N Alpine Dr - $72,000,000
After announcing a few months ago that this would be his last season in the NBA, Kobe Bryant was voted in as a starter for what will be his last All-Star Game. Kobe is someone who has always done everything with style, so there is no reason to expect his retirement lifestyle will be anything different.
As one of the league’s most dominant players of all time, Kobe has certainly amassed a fortune over the years, making this 28,000 square foot Beverly Hills mansion well within his means. It boasts 11 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, and some of the most fabulous amenities you have ever seen.
Golden State (Oakland) - 6159 Acacia Ave - $2,475,000
Around this time last year, everyone was talking about whether or not a jump-shooting team like the Golden State Warriors could survive the playoffs and actually win an NBA title. They proved that they could get it done by beating Lebron James and the Cavaliers, and they have become the most dominant team in the league this year.
With Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all representing the Warriors at this year’s All-Star Game, they will be bringing a confident and stylish swagger with them this year, which is exactly what they might be looking for in a home outside of Oakland.
This beautiful 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom house in Alameda County offers some stunning views of San Francisco Bay and includes a style that would be perfect for any of these young basketball stars.
Houston - 1111 Hermann Dr, 7A - $1,899,000
One of the most popular characters in the NBA would have to be Houston Rockets Shooting Guard James Harden. He is well known around the league both for his crazy beard and his “stirring the pot” celebration that earned him the nickname “Chef Harden.”
This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo in Warwick Towers has fantastic views of Hermann Park. But the real reasons it would be perfect for Harden is that it has a fantastic “chef’s kitchen” and is only about 11 minutes from the Toyota Center where the Rockets play.
