We all know that most NBA players get paid millions of dollars each year. However, what we don't know is how they spend that money in regards to what they eat, what they drive and where they live. It's obvious that they would live in spectacular homes, but it's not obvious as to just how spectacular they are. Let's take a look at 15 of the best mansions currently owned by NBA players.

15. Paul George - Indiana Pacers

The size of George's house is nothing short of immense, and it's located in a private area with a nice view of the water. It may seem smaller when compared to other NBA mansions, but it's still a house that most fans can only dream about living in. The All-Star forward may want to spend a few more of his millions on security since his home was burglarized while he was at a game in late April.

14. John Wall - Washington Wizards

After signing a five-year, $ 80 million contract extension, Wall purchased this estate in Potomac, Md. for $ 4.9 million. This home includes an indoor basketball court, theater, gym, huge kitchen and a private pool sanctuary in the back. It's a fitting home for one of the NBA's best young point guards.

13. Blake Griffin - Los Angeles Clippers

Griffin is not only one of the most exciting players in the NBA, but he's also one of the best as well. Therefore, he would need to live in one of the best homes in Pacific Palisades, Calif. Recently, he purchased a three-story, $ 9 million home that measures in at 9,100 square feet. It also features a kitchen that's big enough to seat the entire roster of the Clippers in it and that includes coaching and training staff.

12. Carmelo Anthony - New York Knicks

When Anthony was in Denver, he used to live in an eight bedroom, 15 bathroom home that cost him $ 9.5 million. He has since sold that mansion now that he's a member of the Knicks and now resides in New York. While he does rent a great place on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, he also has a mansion in Nassau County, N.Y. that's comparable to what he owned in Denver including the usual amenities of a massive pool, kitchen and an abundance of rooms.

11. Kevin Durant - Oklahoma City Thunder

Due to the significantly lower cost of living in Oklahoma, Durant is able to own a mansion that's comparable to other NBA players' homes for a fraction of the price that they paid. For a mere $ 2.1 million, the reigning league MVP was able to enjoy the comforts of a 5,545 square foot mansion equipped with state-of-the-art kitchen, home theater, pool and a guest house that's bigger than the regular house of most people.

10. Kyrie Irving - Cleveland Cavaliers

Irving may be the happiest player in the NBA right now. Not only does he have the privilege of teaming up with LeBron James in Cleveland, but he also gets to live in an amazing mansion. The view of his backyard, as seen in the picture, resembles a water park and is the perfect place to hold incredible pool parties. Perhaps this will be the location for the first NBA championship in Cleveland if he, James and the Cavaliers can make it happen.

9. Tony Parker - San Antonio Spurs

At first glance, it wasn't clear if this was one man's house or a small village. However, it is in fact the incredible estate of four-time NBA champion Tony Parker. His home includes the typical huge pool, multiple bedrooms and home theater that are found in NBA mansions. However, Parker is a huge fan of Marvel and has an amazing, fully painted statue of the Incredible Hulk in his theater.

8. Kevin Garnett - Brooklyn Nets

This $ 4.85 million estate resides in Concord, Ma. and is currently on sale due to Garnett now playing in Brooklyn. This mansion comes with five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a four-car garage, three fireplaces and features 11,000 square feet of living space.

7. Dwight Howard - Houston Rockets

When he used to play for the Orlando Magic, Howard purchased this five bedroom, seven bathroom palace for $ 7.78 million. This home includes a pool fully equipped with a water slide and grotto. Unfortunately for Howard, he is selling the place for $ 4.9 million and is willing to lose a few million dollars on this investment. If anyone happens to have $ 4.9 million sitting around in a shoe-box somewhere, then this place can easily be yours.

6. Dirk Nowitzki - Dallas Mavericks

This is the backyard view of the $ 8 million mega-home that belongs to the former MVP and NBA champion Dirk Nowitzki. His Dallas estate comes with five bedrooms and six bathrooms which is large enough to house a few other families in Dallas if Dirk chose to. Unlike Dwight Howard's home, this estate is not for sale as Dirk plans to retire in Dallas.

5. Chris Paul - Los Angeles Clippers

Paul's estate in Bel Air, Calif. actually used to belong to musician Avril Lavigne before he purchased it from her for $ 8.5 million. To refer to this mansion as "big" would be an understatement as it includes eight bedrooms, 10.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar, 10-car garage, gym, sauna and an outdoor covered living room. No one is certain how often Paul actually uses the outdoor living room, but it's definitely nice to have living in California.

4. Dwyane Wade - Miami Heat

Wade's $ 10.65 million estate on the gorgeous La Gorce Island in Miami is nothing short of incredible. It comes with six bedrooms, a tennis court -- which he intends to turn into a basketball court -- a spectator cabana with wet bar, a guest house and an air-conditioned doghouse. It's safe to say that Wade's dog lives one of the most luxurious canine lives in existence. The same can be said for Wade in regards to human life.

3. LeBron James - Cleveland Cavaliers

Even though James has decided to take his talents back to Cleveland, it's hard to ignore his extravagant living while in Miami. His $ 9 million home overlooked Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove. His home came with the "standard" eight bedrooms and six bathrooms. It also included a wine cellar, guest house, library, home theater, an infinity pool and his dock was capable of harboring two 60-foot yachts. In short, it's good to be the king.

2. Kobe Bryant - Los Angeles Lakers

It's no surprise that Bryant lives in one of the most extravagant homes in the NBA. This two-story Newport Beach mega-home spans 8,500 square feet of living space and comes equipped with the usual home theater, state-of-the-art kitchen, home gym and multiple bedrooms. However, there are two unique features that no other NBA mansion can claim: a hair salon and a shark tank in the library. It's no surprise that the listing price is $ 7.9 million.

LeBron James may be the king on the court, but Bosh is the undisputed king of NBA real estate. Not only does he own an amazing home in Pacific Palisades (pictured at the beginning) which is currently on-sale for $ 14.5 million, but he also owns an astounding $ 12.3 million mansion in Miami. It comes equipped with an infinity pool, state-of-the-art kitchen, an elevator and an all-white interior which makes it the No. 1 NBA mansion.
