Michael Jordan Buys $12.4 Million Home in Golf Development


Oh, to be the G.O.A.T. With enough money in the bank that his son can burn through $50K in one day in Vegas without flinching, it's not particularly surprising to see Mike drop a huge wad of cash on property. This time, it's being reported that Michael Jordan has spent some $12,400,000 on a new house situated in a super-exclusive golf development owned by Jack Nicklaus.

Even with waterfront homes still available for sale, Money opted for something a little more secluded, copping what is believed to be the most expensive spot in the development without direct access to the water. The property also includes a guard house, a guest house and a pool house, all of which is spread over a sprawling 28,000 square feet in sunny Jupiter, Florida. While Jordan's initial financial commitment totals $12.4 million ($4.8 million for the land and a further $7.6 million for the construction), it's expected that he'll have ploughed a cool $20 million into the home when all is said and done.

If Mike's looking for some competition on the links, he may ring the doorbell of neighbor and friend Tiger Woods, who snapped up three adjacent properties on the development to create his own megahome.

Michael Jordan’s Son Blows $50K in One Day in Vegas

While the tweet disappeared fairly quickly, it was online long enough for us to get a little insight to the life of Michael Jordan's son. Marcus Jordan, a 6'3" guard for the University of Central Florida, may not have inherited his father's otherworldly talents, but the ability to burn through stacks of cash in Sin City certainly seems to be genetic. A tweet recently posted by the twenty-year-old Son of G.O.A.T. revealed that he dropped a cool $35K in a Vegas nightclub called Haze, and a total $50K over the course of the day. Here's a screenshot of the tweet:

Did Shaq Propose to Hoopz?

If you're horribly confused by the title of this piece, you're not alone. For those not in the know, the "Hoopz" in question is a young lady by the name of Nicole Alexander. If that doesn't ring any bells, you may wish to cast your mind back to a little show called The Flavor of Love in which everyone's favorite viking-helmet-wearing former Public Enemy hypeman Flavor Flav looked for love. Ms. Alexander managed to beat out nineteen other hopefuls in the first season of the show, although surprisingly she and Flav did not end up living happily ever after.

Shaq Blew $200,000 Gambling

 Somebody gave a video camera to music producer/freelance leprechaun Jermaine Dupri, and the handsome little guy used it to record a series of video segments detailing his post-Janet Jackson existence as a dude with a decent amount of money.  Naturally, his baller lifestyle took him to All-Star Weekend 2010 in Dallas, where he ran into the inimitable Shaquille O'Neal.  As always, the big guy only needed a chance to talk and entertainment flowed forth from his general direction.  If you want to skip ahead, the big guy shows up a little after the 3:20 mark.
