Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird is selling his home in Naples, Florida for $4.8 million.

Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird is selling his home in Naples, Florida for $4.8 million. 

This apparently stems from Bird having not much time to maintain the house, as his return to the Indiana Pacers front office keeps him pretty busy. His agent, Jill Leone, told the Fort Myers News-Press about this in July.  

"Signing a multiyear contract, it's apparent his ability to keep a large home in Naples is limited. They love the area. Everybody loves the area. I'm sure there will be a time when he can spend more time there, but right now physically he's required to be in the Pacers arena. When you're an executive running a team, you don't get much time off. It's a very active, 365-day job." 

Among the house's amenities include four bedrooms, a 500-gallon saltwater aquarium, a basketball hoop, state-of-the-art home theater and an infinity-edge pool. 

Bird and his wife Dinah first purchased a home in the Naples area 20 years ago, but sold it in 1998 in favor of a 6,000-square-foot house which they had renovated in 2001. The listing priceof the 1998 version was $875,000, per NESN. 

He put the house on the market in December of 2006, per Eric Staats of Naples News, who cited a listing by Premier Properties.  Bird's neighbor, Beverly Cook, said she will miss him as "he was a very nice neighbor." 

He would often greet her during his early morning jogs and have his children play with her grandchildren.

Three months ago, Bird returned to Indiana's front office after a year-long hiatus that gave him "a chance to reflect, to rest, to take care of some health issues," per the Associated Press. 

He immediately made his presence felt by strengthening the Pacers' weak bench with the acquisitions of C.J. Watson, Chris Copeland and Luis Scola. On September 25, he signed rising star forward Paul George to a maximum, five-year deal worth an estimated $90 million.  

Bird was previously coach of the Pacers from 1997-2000. He won NBA Coach of the Year honors in 1998 before leaving coaching two years later, days after he guided Indiana to its only NBA Finals appearance. He became team president in 2003.

Jabari Parker or Giannis Antetokounmpo: Who Has Bigger 2014-15 Season for Bucks?

Oct 9 2014 8:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Make no mistake about it, debating who has a bigger season for the Milwaukee Bucks between Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo is a win-win situation for fans of the franchise. Despite their differences in style of play, both men are supremely talented and will both certainly make their impact felt on the court this season. However, despite being a rookie, it's Parker who is bound for the better year. With his polished offensive ski ...

Stuck somewhere between the peaks of Magic and Isiah, then Stockton, then Payton, then youngsters Kidd and Nash, was Mark Price. A true sniper with a remarkably soft touch, Price just might be the best shooter of any point guard in the game’s history. He wasn’t just a glorified three-point specialist, though—the dude could create his own shot and pass with the best of ‘em, too. His most successful season came in ’91-92, when he knocked off ...
