Default LeBron James's new house sounds a proper crib

Dam it got a two-story walk-in closet, that will be about 40 feet wide and 56 feet long -- bigger than half the houses in Bath Township.


______________________________________


AKRON, Ohio -- LeBron James' new house is shaping up as a palace fit for a king -- with a theater, bowling alley, casino and barber shop.

The 35,440-square-foot house in Bath Township, about 20 miles south of Cleveland, is under construction and is to be finished next year. It is being built on 5.6 acres of land that was purchased with an 11-bedroom house in 2003 for $2.1 million. The Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star and Akron native razed the house to clear the way for the new one.

A first-floor master suite, which includes a two-story walk-in closet, will be about 40 feet wide and 56 feet long -- bigger than half the houses in Bath Township.

The house has a dining hall, roughly 27 feet by 27 feet, a "great room" at 34 feet by 37 feet and a bigger, two-story "grand room," according to the Akron Beacon Journal, which reported on the blueprints.

While waiting for the home to be finished, James splits his time between a huge apartment in downtown Cleveland and a relatively modest four-bedroom house in Medina County west of Akron. He paid $580,000 for the house in 2005.

The new house already has begun to draw the curious.

"People who come to photograph it are disrespectful," said Tom Bader, one of nine immediate next-door neighbors. "They park their car in the middle of the street -- with their doors open! And you're sitting behind them! All I wanna do is go home after a hard day's work."

I can only imagine how unbelievable that house is going to be. On a side note, his neighbor sounds like a real d*ck.

A casino? does that mean he is gonna hire a black jack dealer or something. And a barbershop? Does he have his own personal barber that lives with him or something.

He could have one party in each room and his closet. He could put the people he doesnt really like and the leeches in the closet.

No his barber travels there to cut his hair basically. Just lounges/relaxes and probably cuts his sons hair also.

So basically he is too lazy to go to the barbershop. No he probably just doesnt feel like dealing with people who ask for atuographs and stuff when he goes out.

Bingo, also its to his convience...with traveling on the road, coming home and so forth. He may not have the time to travel to his barbershop. Some players might fly thier barbers out to them to give them a cut. Or ask them to schedule an appt at a time that benefits them (the player). Going to the barber/traveling could be a hassle or they could be short on time.

Afterall Bron is paying 10 times the amount for his haircut than the reg Joe Schmoe would. If your cut cost $15, Bron probably pays $150-200 easy...maybe more. Doubt his barber cares since he can take 1 day off...travel to Brons, enjoy his home, cooking, catch up with Bron...cut his hair get paid plus a tip and could make more than he would if he stood in the shop and cut heads all day.

With Bron celeb status...why not bring some things to your home as opposed to being harrassed by the public? As you read mofos stopping in the middle of the street to take pix of a home that isnt even finished yet. Imagine going out bowling.

I'm so sure that this guy couldn't just go around the people that were looking at LeBron's house. He probably just doesn't like 'outsiders' in his up-scale neighborhood. I know the type.
