LeBron James officially made South Beach his home after reportedly purchasing a three-story Coconut Grove mansion for a cool $9 million.

The sale apparently closed for the 12,178-square-foot estate on Nov. 12, according to The Miami Herald. The lavish piece of real estate features six bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a home theater, wine cellar and a library, and if that's not enough, no matter where "King James" should roam throughout his throne -- he can always catch a glimpse of the crystal clear waters, reports the Herald.

Despite a rocky start at the beginning of the season -- adjusting to a new city and teammates, all while watching spiteful fans burn his once loved Cleveland jersey, it seems as if James and the "Big Three" have found their rhythm.

The 2-time MVP led the Miami Heat to their six straight win Wednesday against the Utah Jazz (111-98), scoring 33 points, 14 of which came in the fourth quarter. Dwayne Wade scored 28, while Chris Bosh put up 14 respectively.

Friday the Heat takes its talents to Oakland to take on Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. Win or lose when James returns to his new luxurious pad he can kick up his feet up and relish in that bayfront you can't get in Akron.
