Former NBA center Shawn Bradley is selling his supersize home in Murray, UT. The 9,832-square-foot chalet-style home can be yours for $3,950,000.
Known as the “Stormin’ Mormon,” the rail-thin 7-foot-6 Bradley guarded the paint for the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Nets, and Dallas Mavericks over his 12-year career in the NBA, but he never lived up to his status as the second pick in the 1993 NBA draft.
One of the five tallest men to ever play in the league, the oft-dunked-on center retired to Utah, where he ran for office and served as a counselor for at-risk kids.
Just south of Salt Lake City, his five-bedroom home on 3.5 acres is ideal for the outdoorsman. The covered deck overlooks Big Cottonwood Creek, as well as the enormous, lush yard. You can unwind in the pool or at the fire pit. A large horse barn is situated next to the main house.
The chef’s kitchen features blue-stained wood cabinetry, dark granite countertops, and bar space for six. It flows easily into the open-concept living room, where a stone fireplace serves as an accent wall.
While Bradley lived large in this Utah home, we couldn’t discern if the home was customized for Bradley’s height, but The Associated Press in 2011 reported that the exceedingly tall man “needs just about everything custom-made, from clothes and chairs to countertops and doorways.”
