This must be the house of champions.

Former Los Angeles Clipper Kenyon Martin recently bought a Calabasas home that belonged to another former professional athlete — baseball player Jason Kubel of the Minnesota Twins. Martin paid $2.8 million for the Tuscan-style house, the L.A. Times reported.

The 5,700-square-foot property has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a rotunda entry, an atrium, a chef’s kitchen, three fireplaces and a home theater with stadium seating. The master bedroom suite has an oversized rain shower. But more importantly, the estate includes a putting green, a giant trampoline and a batting cage with pitching machine.

Sitting on more than an acre of land, Martin’s new home also has a swimming pool with beach entry, a raised spa and a water slide.

The listing agent was Michael Preis of RE/MAX Olson & Associates, and Howard Zuckerman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices represented Martin.

Martin has played for five NBA teams in 15 seasons. He was awarded National Player of the Year honors in 2000 and retired from the sport last year. Jubel played 10 seasons for the Twins, Arizona Diamondbacks and Cleveland Indians. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
