1. Blake Griffin

Hopefully for the Clippers’ Blake Griffin, real estate success will go hand-in-hand with basketball glory. Griffin recently scored a Pacific Palisades property for $9 million. His neighbors in this swank zip code include other NBA notables like Chris Bosh. So what did Griffin get for his money? On his three acres of land sit the 9,100 square-foot house, a saltwater pool — wired for surround sound and featuring LED lighting — and an outdoor kitchen. Inside the Cape Cod styled house is a gym, three fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, and hardwood floors. There are a total of six bedroom suites, and off the master is a spa-like bathroom and walk-in closet. The home theater has stadium seating, and the kitchen is outfitted with gourmet features.
