he can pay a year's rent for about 1 game's salary
better than paying 6-8 mil for a place like ilgauskas, then looking like a dumbass when you can't sell it
Because during halftime of that game Ilgauskas introduced new Knick forward Carmelo Anthony(notes) to the news that Big Z rents out a spacious New York City townhouse (that he purchased in 2006 for $6.95 million), for the totally do-able price of $37,500 a month. And Carmelo, after being uprooted from Denver after playing in that city for seven and a half years, is considering turning Big Z into the Big Landlord.
Ilgauskas’ in-game pitch? “It’s awesome, with five bedrooms.”
The New York Post has the story:
“Carmelo Anthony agreed to walk through Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ $37,500-a-month townhouse at 24 Thompson St., after Ilgauskas, who plays for the Miami Heat, pitched it to Melo during a recent Knicks’ victory. The five-bedroom townhouse, represented by Josh Fields of Spire Group, is 5,000 square feet and has hoopster-friendly 15-foot ceilings.”
But Z rent the house in NY, its a real estate property that he makes income off of and has been for years so what your are saying is wrong. If it makes you money its ok. He wasn't selling it...he wanted to be his landlord. smh
