Athlete Celebrity Homes

From 10-car garages to backyard skateparks and basketball courts, Kidzworld looks at your favorite athletes' sweet pads.

Shaq's Supersized Shack

Shaquille O'Neal is a big man who makes some very big bling bling, so you'd expect him to have a huge home - but Shaq Daddy's monsterous mansion in Miami is truly mind-blowing. The 20,000 square-foot mansion has a full tennis court, an indoor racquetball court, a gym with a basketball court, a dock for his boat and a two-bedroom guesthouse. It also has a monster garage for Shaq's collection of classic cars and an outdoor swimming pool. He even has remote-controlled toilets!

Steve Francis' Mansion

Steve Francis will have plenty of time to hang out at his luxury home - now that he and the Orlando Magic have been eliminated from the NBA Playoffs. Steve's 10,000 square-foot mansion near Houston features a massive kitchen with his own private chef, a personal movie theater and his own barber shop to make sure Steve looks good on game day! Steve Francis' backyard includes a swimming pool and a full-size basketball court.

Beckingham Palace

Although he mostly lives in Spain where he plays soccer, David Beckham also has a monsterous mansion known as Beckingham Palace, in England. The home has an indoor swimming pool, a sound system that pipes music into every room and a music studio. For David Beckham's three kids, there's also a 16-foot high playhouse with a drawbridge and a $40,000 US treehouse.

The Hawkman's House

All that money you've poured into Tony Hawk skateboards, skate shoes and video games has helped Tony Hawk buy a pretty sweet pad in Carlsbad, California. The Hawkman's 5,000 square-foot house has an outdoor pool, basketball courts and of course, a half-pipe. His living room features $150,000 worth of gaming electronics, including a PS2, GameCube and Xbox, which are all hooked up to a 65 inch plasma HDTV screen!

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.

So it's not really a sport. It still looks fun though. Actually, cheerleaders do compete. There are cheer competitions.  Agree! 9o9
