Danny Granger has answered to the nickname "Hollywood" in the past, normally based on his propensity to sing like a star despite what his singing sounded like. Well, now Granger has really gone Hollywood.
After spending the bulk of his recent offseasons in Los Angeles working out, Granger is now spreading some serious roots in So Cal, recently buying screenwriter Kevin Williamson's house in Hollywood Hills for a tidy, $3.71 million.
Here is how the house was described in the L.A. Times.
The chic contemporary, built in 1990, features walls of glass, city views and 15-foot-tall ceilings, which may have appealed to the 6-foot-8 small forward. Designed for entertaining, the house has three expansive terraces, a pool area bar and a swimming pool. There is a gym with a sauna, a home theater, four bedrooms, 51/2 bathrooms and 5,140 square feet of living space.
What? No batcave?
Could this mean an end to the batcave dream for Granger's home in New Mexico? Say it ain't so!
During the lockout last October, Granger told Zach Lowe he was still working out issues with the batcave but the dream was still very much alive. Of course, that lockout free time may have contributed to Granger's new off-court priority -- being dad. Granger is now the proud papa of twins (boy and girl) which means DG has been working on his game and diaper changing this summer.
Shifting into parent mode changes a lot of things, including frivilous spending on youthful dreams. Granger has two extra mouths to feed and take care of well into his post-playing career. Do you know how much college will cost for those two infants?
You're right, he can still afford his batcave. Now he'll just have to do it for hid kids.
