We love athlete houses with killer pools. Love ‘em. Would buy one if this blog ever gets snapped up by a giant media company. Sure, Coed Media Group is cool and all, but our asses aren’t going to be sitting next to one of these pools until Coed is snapped up. When that day comes, my ass is relocating to Southlake, TX where BC HQ will be at LaMarcus Aldridge’s pad. Look at that pool. LOOK AT IT! So pretty.
This is just Aldridge’s summer house. He also has one in Portland for in-season purposes. Don’t worry, homeboy has plenty of cash. He made $11.8M in 2012. There’s a raise in 2013 when he’ll make $14M.
As for the Southlake house, the realtor reports:
Luxurious living in and out! On almost an acre, this stone and brick masterpiece is the perfect balance between gracious elegance and sophisticated Old World Charm. Gourmet kitchen. Master suite with fireplace and beverage station.

Those players have the potential for greatness, but unlike their colleagues from the ACC or Big Ten, they do not come with the built-in justification if they turn out to be busts. Kaleb Canales seems to be this summer's coaching equivalent...

He may not have made any blockbuster moves, but so far this offseason, Neil Olshey has proven that he means business. However, a businesslike approach is just what Olshey wants to avoid. Paul Allen and Larry Miller had lost a true vision for the Portland franchise, which is why Olshey’s hiring led to Miller’s resignation. Miller was nothing short of set in his ways, and when...
