Dwight Howard Bought A $20M Mansion In Los Angeles

Dwight Howard just dropped $20 million for a home in Newport Beach, where Kobe Bryant also lives. Doesn’t look like Superman is going anywhere, any time soon…

    good news laker fans

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    Bad news for Mark Cuban.

  • Trilla

    He was already living in LA, so this doesnt really mean that much. I still think he’s gonna sell out and stay with the Lakers tho.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    $20 million check for a mansion for one season makes no sense. It means a lot. He could have kept living in the place he’s been living in if he was only going to stay for one season.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    And how exactly is staying with the Lakers “selling out”?

  • kbak

    guess they’ll be commuting by helicopter together!

    ^my thoughts exactly. what would keeping it real be?

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Vet minimum in Detroit or it isn’t real.

  • Iforgotmyname-again

    Staying in Orlando would be another episode of, “when keeping it real goes wrong”.

    Allllllright, it’s time we put all the arguing to rest. Dwight Howard did what any unhappy employee of any sh#tty employer would do. He quit, in essence. He said he wanted out. The management failed and failed again to find him the help that he needed to get a championship, and surrounded him with horrible contracts( don’t dare try to argue that ) He stayed in Orlando for as long as he could without losing the passion that he has for the game. The way he went about things may not have been the most eloquent, but he’s 26 years old. Most people are still working an entry level position at 26.He accomplished more in Orlando than anyone since or before Shaq, and he did it without anyone of Penny’s caliber. Stan Van Gundy shouldn’t have kept his job either. He’s a glorified Mike D’antoni. Now can we please just sit back and watch the Lakers 3 peat before Kobe rides off into glory?

    Its a waste of money, to spend that much on somewhere to live. I hope he has his money saved up and has invested his money. I don’t want to hear about him in some years after he retires. If I was that rich, 10million or less house is good for me. He is not married with no family, except a son, who he probably pays her about 100,000 a month for.

  • http://juanm.garcia@me.com Str8Ballah

    That mansion is actually a good investment. B4 the real estate collapse it was appreciated at over 45 millie.

  • http://nba.com EJ

    He can sell it later, it’s not a waste of money.

  • http://GymAlien.com GymAlien

    My thoughts exactly Str8Ballah. It’s a great investment and doesn’t mean he’s staying at all. At this time I’m hoping he stays though.
    GymAlien said so!

  • Rexxx

    They can now car pool together up the 405 and Kobe can show Dwight all the shortcuts and all the best places to eat in Newport. Heck, Kobe might even get a Double Date worked up for Dwight.

  • TikiRob

    Why is when people who spend their money that they have earned is a bad thing? ho should care if it was 100 million or 250k it is his money to do with what he wants, good for him,enjoy and PS…..LAKER FOR LIFE

  • http://www.facebook.com/wealwayswin Hersey

    T-Sizzle cracked me up. Dwight coulda signed two Alonzo Gees.

  • Hook

    20 million… its seems is gonna be a Laker more than one year.

  • clydesays

    DW already lives in LA & is on a verge of a huge new contract with some team, so I wouldn’t read too much into it. That said, if the Buss family sells him on the idea that the Lakers would be HIS team once Kobe & Nash retire, i..t would be hard to walk away…

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Watching Lakers fans justify Dwight’s decision after reaming LeBron not to long ago is hilarious. Y’all could make money with that type of contortionist ability.
    Not saying you’re wrong, just saying you’re hypocrites.

  • eZ

    My guess is that he will race kobe to the arena everyday..Is his house bigger or more expensive than kobes?
    He will probably do his groceries where kobe does them, but he will buy a little more

  • Ghostwriter

    Our doctors, teachers, and true laborers need paid the big bucks, thing is people don’t to watch that stuff on television.
