Granger Building ‘Batcave’ in New Mexico

Plans are coming along slowly (New Mexico building codes don’t allow underground tunnel entrances?!), but the Granger’s ‘cave’ should be ready by the time Batman 3 begins production: “‘I wanted an underground tunnel entrance. I had to take that out. I found out there’s so many state codes and laws against that [laughs] so we had to take that one out. But we still have the underground thing going on and I mean I’ve got cars and things that turn my cars and I even got sort of like a moat thing going on so it will be interesting to see.’”

    Single most awesome article title ever.

    Oh to be a millionaire in my early 20′s.

    Danny Granger should go to Bhutan and train in martial arts like Batman did. Then come home and be ever scarier than Ron Ron.

  • Fat Lever

    Brad, I’ll just take being in my early 20′s at this point, the money would be an added bonus…

    Why not just make a batcave under his house like Bruce Wayne?

    I’m pretty sure Batman didn’t check with the state before building his Batcave.

    I just found that i already have a batcave under my new apartment. a lot of holes to fill in that floor

  • k.a.

    haha Picard. New nickname: batdan. Dunna dunna dunna dunna, batdan. Bang, kapow, swish. Opposing small forwards are a cowardly superstitious lot.

    This makes me side with the owners on the CBA.

    So, let’s take bets on how long it takes for him to be broke after he retires

  • Diesel

    I’m getting a mental picture of bruce wayne slowched over, depressed, angry, lost hope..arguing with city plan officials because they won’t give him a permit to build. “Do you know how many guys I have just sitting at the job site?”

    Jukai, it’s New Mexico. It probably doesn’t take that much money to build a house and right now is the time to do it.

    rich dudes do stupid stuff with their money some are just most out there. seinfeld has 46 porsches, that’s stupid to me but hey… it’s his money.

  • http://Www.lacuevacrosscountry.com Slick Nick Da Ruler

    He has an engineering degree dumbass, he’ll be fine after he retires.

  • MattM

    I was already a fan and this just pumps up my support.

    46 porsches? yea, rich people are wack.

    “But we still have the underground thing going on and I mean I’ve got cars and things that turn my cars and I even got sort of like a moat thing going on so it will be interesting to see.”
    It doesn’t sound like he’s building JUST A HOUSE

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Sadly, I thought the same thing upong reading this.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    I know but he’s believed to be a smart guy.

  • http://dsjklf.com Jukai

    CDef28: Going broke has nothing to do with smarts. You give a college grad a million dollars and he can still blow it in an instant. It’s one thing to build a house with an underground tunnel, but he’s talking about his cars like he has a dozen of them. I don’t know, if I had his money, I’d be lavish, but never like THIS…

    Still freakin awesome…I met him about a month ago and wondered what he was doin out here on the West side, but I think anytime you put “tunnel” and “Mexico” in the same thought its getting shut down on site

  • ENDS

    He’s gonna get crushed in that Cave

    He’s always got that engineering degree there if he needs to use it.

  • Young C

    If he actually ever needs to use his engineering degree, then yes he will be considered broke. Having an engineering degree does not automatically bring your millions of dollars back.

  • http://ballislife.com Moose

    Jukai, we need to think about differences between “smart” and “educated”.

  • vmcb

    haha @ iheartcoffee

    You know, someone on the court called me a “Beast” after getting a block, running to the other side of the court, and clapping boards on someone with 2 hands (NYC steel backboards; lots of emphasis). I then proceeded to go home, take off all my clothes, and take pictures of myself half naked and covered in calf blood with a basketball in my hands.

  • http://slamonline.com Spaceship Jay

    Not a true story, but case in point, when you get a nickname your free to enjoy it. But if you invest in it way too much, you tend to look…. STUPID.

  • http://claydefayette@yahoo.com CDef28

    Damn Young C, I know if he actually needs to use that degree it will be sad. All I’m saying is if he actually goes through all the money, he won’t be like most other athletes with nothing to live on. Anyways, why are we talking about Granger going broke? I think he’ll be ok.

    Moose: No, no we don’t….

  • http://slamonline.com Dave

    I wonder if he invested in the mouthguard that actually makes you smarter?

  • http://slamonline.com Dave

    Seriously, though, a Batman house? What are you, dude, eleven f%^#ing years old?!

    Riddle me this, why were you at the all star game?

  • CJK

    Hahaha i love this! It seems like blowing money, yes, but he has his degree and seems like he has enough common sense to put the rest of that big contract away. Some players *coughDWADEcough* buy CHURCHES for their parents and don’t get criticized for spending money. Others buy multiple houses. I think Granger is building this as his house that he will live in til he dies and he probly won’t spend that much more after the house is completed.

    The last Batman movie did over 1 BILLION, (PINKY) in box office totals worldwide.
    Granger’s version will just be like the ones at a Six Flags or Universal Studios. Cardboard walls, maybe some flame shooters. One trap door. Rotating platforms are in every car show so if they’re not mass produced, there’s enough to go around and not 1 of 1 customs. Stop freaking out like a Republican about those Spendocrats. Whoever got the “cash (which is just as good as) money” from the last over a Billion $ movie pie can really spend to build their own more exact ones, and have more money than they can spend.
    Wonder if he will find those Jordan 6′s made into Batman Boots from one of the older Batman movies.
