LeBron James Demolishes $37 Million Beverly Hills Mansion To Build A New Home

A $37 million dollar mansion is not what dreams are made of. At least not for LeBron James, who is knocking down his recently purchased Beverly Hills home to build from ground up.

For the NBA mogul, who signed a 2-year $97.1 million contract extension with the LA Lakers, the demolition of a multimillion dollar house is chump change.

Fans are taking note, and not too kindly. The chorus of Instagram comments includes: “Being able to casually knock down a Mansion just because you don’t like the look of it is a next level flex,” and “Hearst Castle pt 2 incoming.”

James is the first player in NBA history to accumulate $1 billion in earnings as an active player. On February 7, 2023, James surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to become the all-time leading scorer in NBA history.

Off the court, James has accumulated more wealth and fame from numerous endorsement contracts.

He has been featured in books, documentaries (including winning three Sports Emmy Awards as an executive producer), and television commercials. He has won 19 ESPY Awards, hosted Saturday Night Live, and starred in the sports film Space Jam: A New Legacy (2021).

James has been a part-owner of Liverpool F.C. since 2011 and leads the LeBron James Family Foundation, which has opened an elementary school, housing complex, retail plaza, and medical center in Akron.
