From Stephen Curry to Russell Westbrook, here are the most lavish homes of famous athletes and the houses they grew up in!

Wardell Stephen Curry II (that’s right, Steph Curry’s real name is Wardell and he was named after his dad) was born in Akron, Ohio, where he lived with his parents who were both athletes as well.
Stephen Curry’s Current Home
That means that the reigning NBA MVP didn’t grow up in poverty like some other sportsmen from this list, but his childhood home was definitely modest when compared to the mansion he lives in today. The 8,000 square feet mansion on Walnut Creek has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and enough space for his trophies!
LeBron James’ Childhood Home
Just like Curry, LeBron James was also born in Akron. However, James had a difficult childhood; his family was very poor and his dad, an ex-con, was never there when he was growing up.
LeBron James’ Current Home
Luckily for LeBron, he had his basketball coach, Frankie Walker, on his side and he helped him focus on basketball and school. Today, LeBron is considered the best basketball player in the world and he lives in a luxurious, $9 million mansion in Miami!
Anthony Davis’ Childhood Home
Known by his nickname, The Brow, Davis was born and raised in Chicago. He grew up with his twin sister Antoinette and an elder sister who is also a basketball player! Fun fact: Anthony played basketball at a nearby church because his school didn’t have a gymnasium!
Anthony Davis’ Current Home
Today, Anthony is known as the NBA power forward and center and a four-time NBA All-Star. He also plays for New Orleans Pelicans, so it’s no wonder he’s been able to afford himself a $1.5 million mansion in Metairie, Louisiana.

New England Patriots quarterback and a five-time Super Bowl Champion, Tom Brady was born in San Mateo, California. He grew up with three sisters in a Catholic family. As a kid, Tom regularly visited San Francisco 49ers games at Candlestick Park and was a fan of Joe Montana.
Tom Brady’s Current Home
Brady still holds the record for the most playoff victories and he has appeared in the most playoff games of any NFL player in the history. An athlete like Brady can’t possibly live in a modest home; that’s why he lives in a $20 million and 22,000 square foot home.
Dak Prescott’s Childhood Home
Prescott was born and raised in Louisiana, where he inherited the love for sports from his mom Peggy. Unfortunately, Dak’s mom died in 2013 of colon cancer. To honor his mom, whose birthday was September 4th, Prescott chose jersey number 4 for his uniform.

One of the best examples is this $19 million Hertfordshire mansion.
