Back in 2009, Joe Montana made big news when he put his 500-acre Northern California spread on the housing market with an asking price of $49,000,000. Unique price, eh? Flash-forward to 2012 and Montana is still trying to sell that house. New price: $35,000,000. What changed with the house in three years to drop the price $14mm? Gophers? Bad olive crop? Windstorm took out trees? None of those, from what we can tell. JUMP!
The Juice is loose! Or at least his Florida home is. Wife killer, kidnapper and former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson is in foreclosure. The bank decided to take away Simpson's Miami home, which he won't be needing anytime soon anyway, because he owes them more than $700,000. It's really too bad when such a swell guy happens upon misfortune. Although maybe he could repay the bank in cigarettes. Here are the details. Check it!
There's one of two things going on with John Smoltz right now: (a.) He's getting bored with his 18,000 sq. ft. Georgia house on a golf course, or (b.) his ass is leaking cash. See, there was news in 2011 that Smoltz had some trouble with real estate in Wyoming where he went through a "strategic foreclosure." That brings us to the news that Smoltzy has put this gigantic f-you pad on the market for only $7.2mm. Dude made $135mm in his career. Something is going on here. JUMP!
Who knew big, tough, quarterback-sacking linebackers liked pastels this much? Certainly not us. Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware's Dallas home is on the market for a little over $2 million. Normally, we're amazed by the cool features, awesome rooms and vast size of athletes' homes. With Ware's, we're just amazed by the amount of pastels on the inside. It's completely nauseating. Take a look for yourself. Check it!
Fred Couples may not be what he used to on the golf course these days, but he seems to be doing alright on the real estate market. Couples is putting his La Quinta, California villa on the market only two years after he bought it. Oh, and he stands to make more than $1 million on the sale. If you don't mind living in the desert with a bunch of old celebrities, then this place is for you! Hell, it has an outdoor shower.
Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis is about to take a bath on his Florida man lair. The pad is on the market for $500,000 less than he paid for it, but hey, the dude probably needs the money. He's been locked out by the league and rumor has it, when the NBA offseason finally begins he's going to get axed by the Wizards, who can take advantage of a stipulation in the new collective bargaining agreement to wipe his salary off the books. Time to unload! Check it!
You want to know why it must suck for Kurt Warner to live in this insane Arizona contemporary house with over 11,000 square feet and more swimming holes than the Florida Keys? Because he can't throw massive keggers and have bikini chicks frolicking on his patio. Remember, dude is a Bible thumper. So, with religion tying him down, it's time to sell this pad for $5,000,000. And, as a bonus, the realtor got the house its own special on HGTV! JUMP!
Is this Jason Kidd's way of telling Jason Kidd that his days as a Dallas Mavericks PG are over? The Dallas condo goes on the market during the NBA lockout which looks like it's going to deep six the entire season. Kidd turns 39 in March. We're pretty sure this is the sign that homeboy won't be spending very many more nights in his 21st floor Azure condo. $1.6 million gets you Dallas views and a gourmet kitchen. JUMP!

We're talking three stories, six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a bomb-ass pool and a piece of land right next to the ocean. Not only that, but you'll help Miller make close to $4 million in profit. Here are the details and the photos. Check it!
BC Assignment Editor Monty reports: Marty Cordova was a baseball player who probably spent more time on the disabled list than he did on the field, but that doesn't mean he didn't do well for himself. Just take a look at his Henderson, Nevada castle. It can be all yours for a mere $3.25 million and by the look of things, it's probably worth every penny. Either Marty has mob ties or he just got paid a lot for hitting .274. Check it out!
Can we really feel bad for Mike Hampton and his real estate issues in Phoenix? You think Mike felt bad making $124,000,000 over his 16-year baseball career which accounted for one 20-win season and two all-star appearances? Look, Mike's about to lose at least $2,000,000 on this pad and how much more in decorations wasted. Could you rich bastards just settle for the $500k 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath spread? No? Then you deserve to crash and burn. JUMP!
We know what baseball players' homes look like. We know what basketball players' homes look like. But where does a former NHL sniper from Russia reside? Pretty much exactly where you'd think -- in a penthouse condo in Miami that sits right on the beach. To hell with winter, hey? We take a look at Alexander Mogilny's Florida condo, which is on the block for a paltry sum of $6.8 million. Check it!
Should we be surprised that there's a sense of urgency from Baron Davis to unload his 9,000 sq. ft. Vegas mansion? Not really. Not like homeslice is getting an NBA paycheck. But all of you figuring this is just a lockout real estate dump need to realize Baron has had this pad on the market since '09. Now it's empty & perfect for a porn czar looking to shoot MILF videos. Just think of all the scenes available under one roof. Pool scene. Crazy ass shower scene. JUMP!
What do we remember about Pat Hentgen's run as a right-handed pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays? Oh, maybe that 1996 season when he won 20 games and had 10 complete games on his way to a Cy Young Award. That was pretty much the end, though. He'd eventually make $37,000,000 over a 14-year career and then buy a house in Tarpon Springs, Fla. with one of the most worthless theater rooms we've ever seen. Pat, seriously, $2mm for that garbage? JUMP!
You know it has to suck for Tom Brady to not be able to take his boy into the backyard and smash two-hoppers while Ben Brady plays shortstop. The logical move is to get a giant 45-acre spread where Gisele can plant some flowers and frolic in the sweet grass. Hence, the attempted sale - yet again - of Brades Beacon St. penthouse. Being the nice guy that Tom is, he's lowering the asking price $400,000 and asking $10.5mm. Step up, Patriots superfan. JUMP!
Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is loaded. How loaded? He just forked over $70 million for a gigantic luxury yacht called The Lady Anne. Maybe he can throw another $40 million at Albert Haynesworth and use him as an anchor. We've got the particulars, we've got the photos, and we've got the story of Snyder's latest purchase, which says "I'm a bigger baller than you could even dream of!" Check it!
You know how often we come across a hockey player unloading a house worthy of the BC Pad Purveyor series? Like, never. So imagine our surprise when the name Russ Courtnall reentered our lives via news that the former right winger was unloading an $8.5mm California home. Earlier this week, we told you about Adrian Beltre's over-the-top mansion with 15 bathrooms. In reality, the place sucked. Not Courtnall's. For less than half of Beltre's you can have this.
Once again we are dumbfounded by the excess by which a baseball player lives his life. You think Adrian Beltre really needs 15 bathrooms for a seven bed house? You think Adrian drops his morning deuce in a different toilet for two consecutive weeks in the offseason? Mr. Beltre, who has earned/will earn nearly $88mm in his MLB career, is trying to unload his California mansion. The cost? Just $19.8 million. And the man cave sucks balls. JUMP!
Tennis legend Anna Kournikova and boyfriend Enrique Iglesias are building a new $20 million home in Miami that Scarface would be proud of. Hopefully it doesn't end as badly for them as it did for Tony Montana. Her old pad is on the market for $9mm and was a piece of junk. In honor of this excess we've got an excess of Anna Kournikova pics for you. We know that's what you really wanted anyway. Check it!
