Our good friend and BC contributor Peter Burns hit us up on Twitter this afternoon to tell us his old homeboys from the San Antonio radio days tell him that David Robinson is selling his giant estate. The big news here is that The Admiral lived in a gated community so this is like trying to bust into Fort Knox to figure out the details. We know a few details on the pad: there are very high ceilings, a basketball/tennis court and plenty of neutral décor. JUMP!
We figure this is the closest you losers will ever get to the caliber of a woman as Marilyn Monroe, so listen up. Some auction house called Heritage Auctions has a baseball on the bidding block with only 5 days remaining and it holds the touch of lips from the most famous WAG in sports history. We're talking lipstick marks from Marilyn Monroe and an autograph from Joe DiMaggio. Open up the wallet and splurge. The man cave deserves it. JUMP!
There are strict requirements for any person interviewed on BC. The individual must be capable of telling a sports-related story and actually have favorite sports teams. Today we catch up with Penthouse Pet Aimee Sweet, a New England native who has interesting rooting interests. She's a Celtics, Patriots and Bruins fan. And a Yankees fan. Seriously. It's like one of the most taboo choices a Boston fan could possibly make. Her reasoning & a party story with Lonnie Paxton - JUMP!
BC received a bitchy email yesterday from Pete in Orlando where the question was raised about the new Busted Coverage Cribs series. "Dude, seriously, who cares if an athlete is selling his house. More cheerleaders and less Scottie Pippen putting green." Um, Pete, it's July. Finding cheerleader material is nearly impossible. But locating an athlete who's been trying to sell a mansion is easy & we are providing a service. Today - J Rich. JUMP!
Our Busted Coverage Cribs series rolls along with a venture into the head of Scottie Pippen, who is best known for squandering his NBA fortune. How bad off is the former Chicago Bulls' legend? He actually had a yard sale earlier this year. But it's not all gloom & doom for Pips. He's sitting on a Fort Lauderdale house that he bought in 2000 for $1.34mm. The asking price in 2011 - $16,000,000! Who's dumb with cash now, homies? JUMP!
The tragic saga of Jay Buhner's B2B Estate rolls along, now nearly three years into its time on the Seattle housing market. Way back in July 2009 it was reported that Jay came off his 2008 listing price of $12,000,000 for his 7,500 sq. ft. pad that includes 80 acres of woods and places to gallop on horses. Now listed at $6.75mm, this beast is a steal. Step up, open the wallet and help Jay get rid of this ball & chain. JUMP!
The tipsters keep sending us famous athlete houses for sale so some of you must care about our latest series on the subject. Today we hear that Chuck "Iceman" Liddell is selling his San Luis Obispo pad for $1,200,000, which is less than what he paid in 2006. No word on where Chuck has moved his operations, but this house is empty and seems to be move-in ready. Photos & house details - JUMP!
While there have been many sad moments in the life of JaMarcus Russell (like burning through 1st-overall cash) is the fact that the house he has for sale in Oakland is now online for all to see. That's usually not embarrassing, but when your worthless jersey is still hanging above the fireplace, it signals failure. Just a hunch - Tom Brady doesn't have one of his framed jerseys hanging above his fireplace. Full gallery and details of this pad - JUMP!
It's been a whirlwind 10 days for Tyson Chandler. He's won an NBA championship, been a guest judge on the Miss U.S.A. pageant and then closed Monday on the sale of his Chicago mansion that had been on the market for 4 years. Yes, 4! Originally purchased for $4mm and then listed for $5mm, Chandler finally succumbed to the real estate market with a sale of the 7,309 sq. ft. home in Northfield, IL for $2.1mm. Photos and details of what Chandler just sold - JUMP!
This report came into BC HQ this afternoon regarding our scheduled interview with Orel Hershiser who's working with Subway and Little League baseball. "Way serious guy. No fun at all." Ahh, but a quick look gives us our moneyshot. Orel says ESPN is totally not a frat house. Yes he did! Five Questions Editor Joe Student's report - JUMP!
Yesterday we showed you Ray Allen's $3.7mm, 6 3/4 bath Seattle house that's be on the market. Now comes word that Troy Aikman is selling his $24,000,000 Texas mansion that happens to coincide with news in January that the former Cowboys' QB and his wife were splitsville. It's believed that this is the most expensive house in the Dallas area on the market right now. Take a peak at the house details - and the mortgage calculator - after the JUMP!
The tennis starlet who really never won much on the tennis circuit, yet turned herself into a multi-millionaire celebrity has put her 6,600 square-foot Miami mansion on the market for $9.4 million. For that price you get seven bedrooms, an insane pool and luxury. A look inside the home Anna calls home - for now - after the jump.
Um, looking to live like an overpaid backup NFL QB who’s career is on the brink after a couple of...
