When we start to think of where MVPs live, the houses are insane. LeBron has a 30,000 sq. ft. house in Akron that he only uses for a few months out of the year. Kobe owned this crazy Newport Beach pad that he put on the market for a reasonable $8.6 million.
Then there is WNBA MVP Candace Parker and her former NBA-playing husband Shelden Williams, who have just listed their Los Angeles house that doesn’t even have a pool. The couple wants $1.5; the bad part is that Shelden paid $1.8 million for it in 2008. Ouch.
Such is life for the WNBA MVP. She doesn’t even have a theater in this house. Grantland reported earlier this year that the most Parker can make in base salary this season is just over $100,000. But she also makes seven-figures playing in Russia and from adidas.
According to the realtor:

Real Highlights Of Parker/Williams House:
