In 2010, professional hoopster LeBron James moved from Cleveland, where he played for the Cavaliers, to Florida in order to dribble and shoot for the Miami Heat. He quickly plunked down $9 million for a large, gated and newly constructed mansion wedged on to a narrow, .45-acre bay front lot in affluent Coconut Grove. Over the summer the well-compensated Mister LeBron signed back on the Cavs and, so snitched the kids at Curbed, has hoisted his empty manse in Coconut Grove up for sale with a heavy-duty $17 million price tag.

Listing details Your Mama thoroughly perused describe the bay front house as “the King’s palace” and show the 12,178-square-foot residence has six bedrooms, eight full and one half bathrooms, a “sommelier’s wine cellar,” home theater, an elevator, a 4,500 square foot entertainment terrace, an infinity edged pool that lights up like a Christmas tree, dock space for not just one but two 60-foot boats, a state-of-the-art security system — natch, a private generator and — in case anyone might be curious — annual taxes of $186,521.

Our research indicated Mister LeBron owns a couple of cribs in Akron, OH, including a seven-plus acre, gated compound with more than 30,000 square feet of interior space that he picked up in 2003 for $2.1 million.
