Jerry Buss' show-stopping mansion in Playa del Rey has sold for $5.1 million.
The custom Italian-style villa was built in 1998 by the late Los Angeles Lakers owner and billionaire, and it shows. Lakers logos are incorporated in the home's stained-glass double-door entry, which opens to a rotunda.
Spanish tile floors, wood-beam ceilings and a winding staircase continue the architectural style inside. A three-stop elevator also connects the 10,846 square feet of living space.
There are multiple balconies, three fireplaces, seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms -- just enough excess to befit the man who transformed the local professional basketball team into what became known as "Showtime" by giving seats to celebrities and entertaining fans with the Laker Girls.
