Believe It Or Not, David Robinson’s San Antonio Mansion Has A Giant Spurs-Themed Basketball Court
David Robinson’s career is often overshadowed by the success of the Spurs franchise after his retirement in 2003, which is saying something, because he won two NBA Championships with them and basically laid the groundwork for one of the classiest organizations in sports. Or maybe his basketball career just gets lumped in with all the other great stuff he’s done, like serve in the military, combat this country’s massive wealth disparity, or create socially responsible financial advisory firm, Admiral Capital. The list goes on, but the point is pretty clear: He’s a good dude.
He’s also a very rich dude with three sons who play basketball. That probably explains the basketball court. We have no idea where the myriad of Spurs logos come from. (Did he play there?)
Neil Leitereg of Realtor.com posted the listing today in case you want to get in on the action before someone like Robinson friend and admirer, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, swoops in and snatches it up.
[Realtor.com] While not quite as large as his previous home, a 12,500-square-foot custom manse, his latest property certainly isn’t lacking in size. Sited on two acres in Shavano Park, The Admiral’s Mediterranean-style home weighs in comfortably at 8,175 square feet of living space and has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and three fireplaces.
Head to the rear of Robinson’s home and the grounds explode into a combination of resort-like leisure space and sportsman’s oasis. An inviting pool and spa with water features, swim jets and other bells and whistles sits adjacent to a long, covered patio; while a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, tennis court and San Antonio Spurs-stamped basketball court round out the paradise setting.
Apparently this is the second time he’s moved around the area. Considering that his financial advisory company dabbles in real estate, we’re pretty sure this is a money based move (and not because he’s recently stopped being a Spurs fan). Either way, here’s the official listing in case you’re seriously interested in the place. Check it out below…
