After four seasons with the Miami Heat, where he earned $70 million in salary and won two NBA Championships, next season LeBron James will be heading home to Cleveland. And even though he is signing a relatively short 2-year contract, odds are LeBron will not be needing a full time residence in Miami ever again. In all likelihood, the reason LeBron signed such a short contract is so he can sign a much longer contract with the Cavs after the 2016 season when the salary cap has been raised significantly. If all goes to plan, LeBron will most retire as a Cav and earn an extra $21 million in the process, just by being a little patient.
One of the most obvious signs that LeBron does not plan to play in Miami ever again is the fact that he just listed this absolutely stunning waterfront mansion that he has been his primary residence since 2010.
Located at 3590 Crystal View Ct, Miami, Fl, 33133, LeBron's realty company is calling this property "the most opulent estate in Miami". LeBron purchased the gated compound for $9 million and just listed it for $17 million.
At just over 12,000 square feet, this gorgeous home features 6 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms and one half-bath, a dock built that has room for two 60-foot yachts, and 4,500 square feet of additional space around the house itself that is covered to protect inhabitants from the elements. Four of the bedrooms have their own private terraces or sundecks. If you feel the need to meditate, you can always head to the glass infinity pool with waterfall that looks out directly at Biscayne Bay. If you're feeling insecure, the house comes with state of the art security system and an area where a full time security team can stand guard 24 hours per day.
