Advertisements for the brand new Brooklyn Nets basketball team have been appearing all over New York City for the last few months. The team formerly known as the New Jersey Nets, and more formerly known as the New York Nets, and even more formerly known as the New Jersey Americans, is currently settling into the brand new Barclay Center, and gearing up for their first game in November of 2012. The changes for the Nets have not just been location based, however. The team recently acquired former Atlanta Hawks team member, Joe Johnson. This meant that the six-time All-Star had to relocate from the ATL to NYC, which meant putting his massive Atlanta mansion on the market. There is no word on where he is currently living in New York, but if his former home in the south is anything to go by, Mr. Johnson is accustomed to a particularly opulent lifestyle.
Joe Johnson's house in Atlanta covers 13,822 square feet. It has eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, high ceilings, a mixture of hardwood, slate, and tile floors, and massive windows in almost every room. Joe Johnson's house also sports a billiards room, a weight room, a recording studio(!), a room built just to hold a massive loaded bar, and an in-home barbershop and salon. The house also features a simply huge eat-in, state-of-the-art kitchen, a laundry room with multiple washers and drawers, multiple fireplaces, a private movie theater, and a ridiculous number of flat screen tvs (as many as five per room). If the over-the-top vibe of Joe Johnson's house is your style, than the $4.7 million price tag probably won't cause you to bat an eye either.
