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!

CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
