Washington Wizards point guard and 2010 no. 1 draft pick John Wall signed an $80 million contract this summer. Considering he’ll be a Wizard for a relatively long while, the former Kentucky star copped an eight bedroom and 12 bathroom mansion in Potomac, Md. that features a six-car garage, a waterfall and a basketball court—but we just may be more impressed with the wall that features three flat screen TVs.
Reports the Washington Post:
The NBA point guard, who turns 23 on Friday, traded his downtown apartment for a house big enough for family, friends and the occasional blowout pool party. How big? Big enough that it makes RGIII’s $2.5 million, 9,000-square foot mini-mansion in Loudoun County look like a starter home.
When Wall inked his new deal, he said he was looking for a place that could comfortably accommodate his mom, siblings and other guests visiting Washington. We’ve learned that he settled on an eight bedroom, 12 bath, 17,350 sq. ft. mansion just outside the Beltway and closed two weeks ago.
The two-acre estate has all the bells and whistles we’ve come to expect for A-list athletes: Six-car garage, home theater, pool, hot tub with waterfall, outdoor grill and cabana, fitness room, steam room, tennis court, putting green, volleyball court and — in case he wants to bring his work home — an indoor basketball court.
