Lebron James Demolishes $37m Beverly Hills Mansion To Rebuild ‘dream Home



LeBron James is part of another teardown.

No, not of an NBA roster, but rather of a $37 million mansion in Beverly Hills, California owned by James and his family.

The 38-year-old superstar has reportedly decided to tear down the picturesque house and rebuild his “dream home” from the ground up, according to Front Office Sports. House Beautiful provided a detailed look into the features of the 13,000-square-foot, Spanish Mission-style mansion James purchased in 2020.

Upon purchase three years ago, James started the legal battle to get building permits to rebuild on the 2.5-acre plot, which had both a pool and pool house, tennis courts, and one of the largest driveway gates in L.A., per multiple reports.

Prior to demolition, the home featured vaulted ceilings, seven fireplaces, four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, seven fireplaces, a screening room, a trophy room and a breakfast courtyard with teal-tiled fountain, per House Beautiful.

There’s no telling what James’ new home will look like, but its being speculated that the four-time NBA champion is looking to ditch the bronze sculptures, which had surrounded the property, for a sleeker aesthetic. His other homes — a 12,000-square-foot Miami mansion and his primary residence in Brentwood, California — feature this contemporary approach with all-white interiors and no frills.

Regardless of the outcome, this rebuilt home will likely be the place where James retires from the NBA when that day comes. Though James publicly flirted with retirement after the Los Angeles Lakers’ Western Conference Finals loss to the eventual champion Denver Nuggets in May, he is widely expected to return to for his 21st season this fall.

In fact, recent rumors surrounding the Lakers after their playoff elimination suggest they’re keeping a similar roster after retooling around James and fellow star Anthony Davis at the midseason trade deadline.

UEFA to raise payments for clubs not in European competition



Clubs that fail to qualify for UEFA’s competitions are set to receive a greater share of revenue from the European governing body from next season.
The arrangement is under a new distribution model announced on Wednesday by UEFA.
UEFA and the European Club Association (ECA) signed a renewed working agreement until 2030 which will “bolster long-term stability and sustainable growth in European club football,” the governing body said in a statement.

The change will be effective from the start of the 2024-25 season, coinciding with a new format in UEFA’s Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League.

Under the new model for the 2024-2027 cycle, seven per cent of the revenue UEFA earns from the three competitions will be distributed to clubs not competing in them, up from four per cent.

The European Leagues Association, which represents professional soccer leagues in Europe, said the change would result in 308 million euros ($330.02 million) being shared among non-participating clubs, up from the current 175 million euros.

“Today’s announcement … will help all clubs across Europe to safeguard their competitiveness on and off the pitch while keeping investing in youth and talent development,” it said in a statement.

UEFA said further details of the new system would be unveiled at a later date.
