Yao Ming played all eight of his NBA seasons in Houston after they drafted him #1 overall in 2002. Knowing Houston was going to be his non-Chinese home for a while he decided to drop some cash on this place. Complete with some of the highest ceilings weâ€™ve seen and a pink jacuzzi, it doesnâ€™t look like Yao spared any expenses. Seriously though, we canâ€™t get past this pinkÂ Jacuzzi!
Thereâ€™s literally no way Yao fits in this tub, right? And whatâ€™s with the movie theater style lighting? All in all Yao had a pretty nice house but this bathtub situation is mind-boggling.
According to Realtor.com:
At 7-foot-6 and 310-pounds, Ming obviously needed a home with plenty of room to move and the suburban property certainly fit the requirements with nearly 12,000 square feet of living space, six bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. A two-level foyer lined in marble starts things off in Casa de Yao and the luxe amenities donâ€™t stop there.
