Not-So-Humble Athlete Abodes

Athletes are bigger, better, faster, and/ or stronger than the rest of us, and some of them almost achieve the superpower of flying. The pros perform on a larger than life scale, and many live that way as well. In the interest of gawking at eye candy, we’ve gathered more than a dozen of those athlete mansions and houses, including more than a few in the Miami area. These homes’ square footage ranges from a relatively modest 6,000 to a positively palatial 28,000. Aerial images provided by Realtors Jeff and Cary Lichtenstein, with other images supplied by Zillow.
