LeBron James is building a new home near his hometown of Akron, Ohio. And if something providential intervenes (as I pray it does), I'll soon be getting my invite to the house-warming party.
Check out this spread.
The NBA star is building a 35,000-square-foot home that will have a two-lane bowling alley, barber shop, aquarium, sports bar, a recording studio, a six-car garage, a two-story walk-in closet in the master bedroom and, get this, a casino. Wow.
There might have been more to James' super sized crib, but I got tired of using commas. The home is, to borrow a bad phrase, fit for a "King."
What possible reason could have ever have for leaving his house, except for game days with the Cavs and groupie searches? Will he have full-time employees staffed in the casino and barbershop? Why did he only build a two-lane bowling alley and six-car garage?
Certainly he could afford to have more than two people bowl at a time, and he's got to have more than six cars.
This development is almost enough to have him supplant Jay-Z in my cool rankings. If he can start dating the equivalent of Beyonce, he'll move to the top.
