A quick Google search reveals that Reggie Sanders made just shy of $42,000,000 during his baseball career that ended in 2007. The guy never had 100-plus RBI in a single season and still pulled down that kind of f-you money. Anyway, Reg is selling his Myrtle Beach condo and could really use a buyer. In the market for an oceanfront pad to impress the ladies? Tired of your timeshare? Step up and buy one outright. JUMP!
In the market for a giant Phoenix home where you can hide from your kids and watch NFL games in your 18-seat theater? Of course you are. Are you and eight buddies looking to go in on where you can throw raging fratty parties and shoot NSFW bikini videos? Jason Kidd has a house you need to buy. It's only 13,500 sq. ft. and has six bedrooms. However, you'll get like four houses within one house. That's right, multiple living arrangements. JUMP!
Having spent seven out of 11 of his pro career playing in Charlotte, one would assume Gerald Wallace would've splurged and bought himself an insane house. The guy has amassed nearly $63,000,000 in career earnings and is slated to make another $40,000,000 over the next four years in Brooklyn. That's some serious cash to only be living in a $1.6 million house. Looks like Wallace is unloading this dump for some nicer digs up in New York. JUMP!
Want to live like former NBAer James Posey? The guy won two NBA titles, made over $57,000,000 in salary over his career and now you can live in his Miami apartment/house. Are you in the market for a villa with Biscayne Bay views, granite counters and a great neighborhood to call home? Posey has this place on the market for only $2,195,000 and it's in a gated community. He paid $2,170,000 for it in 2005. JUMP!
Yep, it has been one helluva rough year for Warren Sapp. He claimed to have lost his Super Bowl ring, filed for bankruptcy, called Jeremy Shockey a snitch, was removed from the NFL Network, became a courtroom judge for a YouTube show, had his shoe collection sold on eBay and now his 15,000 sq. ft. mansion is about to be auctioned to the highest bidder. Yep, he's losing the pad with a water slide & what looks like a grotto. JUMP!
Yao Ming played all eight of his NBA seasons in Houston after they drafted him #1 overall in 2002. Knowing Houston was going to be his non-Chinese home for a while he decided to drop some cash on this place. Complete with some of the highest ceilings we've seen and a pink jacuzzi, it doesn't look like Yao spared any expenses. Seriously though, we can't get past this pink Jacuzzi! JUMP!
Cortland Finnegan signed a big deal with the St. Louis Rams heading into the 2012 season. Yeah, five years, $50 million big. Looking to upgrade and move a little closer to his new team Finnegan has decided to unload his Brentwood, Tennessee pad...for a cool $1.4 million. The house is only 5 years old and comes complete with an elevator, but it rests on only half an acre. In Tennessee nonetheless...weak. JUMP!
How was Ray Rice living on his 2nd round draft pick salary? Frugally. The guy recently signed a 5-year, $40 million contract with the Ravens so he can afford something better than a 4 bed, 4 bath townhouse with only 2,100 sq. ft. It's time to unload the rookie contract digs. Can't say we blame Rice. Take a look at the faucets in the master bathroom. You can't be impressing a famous chick with fake gold faucets. Oh, and it's time to lose the dorm fridge. JUMP!

We love athlete houses with killer pools. Love 'em. Would buy one if this blog ever gets snapped up by a giant media company. Sure, Coed Media Group is cool and all, but our asses aren't going to be sitting next to one of these pools until Coed is snapped up. When that day comes, my ass is relocating to Southlake, TX where BC HQ will be at LaMarcus Aldridge's pad. Look at that pool. LOOK AT IT! So pretty.
In the market for a multi-million dollar house that is currently owned by a professional athlete and the house must have a cool pool? Sure you aren't, but it's not a crime to look. Maybe you work at Facebook and need a house near San Francisco? Barry Zito is trying to sell a mountainside retreat with what has to be the best pool view in athlete houses currently on the market: $11.45M. Looking for a grotto? You can buy Devin Harris' house: $2.1M. More - JUMP!
Have you been in the market for a giant house on three acres in the Louisville zip code and just can't find that perfect house? Rick Pitino has a house to sell that might be the perfect fit.

We'd nearly forgotten about Hunter Mahan until yesterday when he beat Rory McIlroy at the Accenture Matchplay and his wife, former Cowboys cheerleader, Kandi came running onto the green. Of course she's one of our all-time favorites. One thing led to another and we were digging into what Mahan has been up to. Um, not much. Just selling his million-dollar mansion and replacing it with a 19,000 sq. ft. mega-mansion. Ho-hum. JUMP!
The fine folks at Realtor.com have been updating some of the athlete houses that are on the market, or STILL on the market and besides Joe Montana's $35,000,000 pad, Jake Plummer's place sticks out. The Snake has been trying to unload this dump since 2009 and has dropped the price by $1.6mm since. Nope, no luck. Not even Baby Jesus is splurging on this place with the comma-shaped pool. Take a peak & buy it. JUMP!
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!
In case you didn't notice this winter, Jonathon Papelbon has no use for his Boston brownstone. He signed a free-agent deal with Philly and must not plan on making Boston his permanent home because the 2,500 sq. ft. Beacon Street pad on the market. What do you get in this $3,100,000 deal? Location. Want to stumble home drunk after Red Sox games? This place is less than two miles from Fenway. Want that sweet rug? Paps will probably throw it into a deal. JUMP!
