Miami Rumors

LeBron James is apparently getting a jump on his pre-training camp workouts for the 2015-16 season with the Cavaliers in Miami, under the direction of one or two personal trainers. David Alexander, a Miami-based personal trainer for several pro athletes who is also business partner and personal trainer for James’ wife, Savannah, posted a picture to his Instagram account Friday of himself, James, restricted free agent guard Norris Cole, and James’ personal trainer Mike Mancias.
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is under contract to sell his waterfront home in Coconut Grove, Fla., according to the Multiple Listing Service. The pending sale comes after James in March lowered the asking price for the modern compound in the Crystal Cove area to $15 million, down from $17 million last year. Records show that the 30-year-old basketball player paid $9 million for the property in late 2010, the year it was built.
The walled estate encompasses nearly half an acre with a 12,178-square-foot main house, a guesthouse, security quarters, a 4,500-square-foot patio space and an infinity-edge pool with waterfall features and custom lighting. Private dockage can accommodate space for up to two 60-foot yachts. The three-story main house, replete with dark hardwoods, box-beam ceilings and glass walls, has an elevator, a wood-paneled office and a home theater with stadium seating. An entertainment wing features a lounge area, a game room and a wet bar. There are six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms.
Jon Barry, an analyst for ABC and ESPN, cited New York, Los Angeles and Miami as cities that are particularly popular among players. “People aren’t going to be going out in Milwaukee,” he said. While Barry said his night-life days were “long past” — his playing career ended in 2006 — he recalled trips to the China Club, a staple of New York’s club scene in the 1990s.
