L.A Lakers star LeBron James buys his daughter an insane playhouse for her birthday


Fresh off securing his fourth NBA Championship, LeBron James celebrated his daughter Zhuri’s sixth birthday earlier this week when he gifted her a stunning playhouse.

The playhouse, which sits on the lawn of James’ LA home is a scaled-down replica of his massive $23 million home.

Zhuri’s new pad comes complete with a miniature sofa, kitchen and even a study area.

LeBron featured his daughter’s gift in a recent Instagram post – highlighting it side-by-side with the sprawling mansion on which it was based.

“This little girl has the nerve to have her own house,” jokes James as he pans round from his main property to reveal Zhuri’s new playhouse.

“Are you doing school from your crib?” James chuckles as he sees his daughter.

“Your house looks just like the big house though,” says James as he compares the two structures. 


James, who was named Finals MVP after his Los Angeles Lakers team defeated the Miami Heat in game 6 of their series, has spent the last several months away from his family inside of the NBA’s COVID-secure bubble in Orlando, Florida.

After such a long period away from his loved ones, James is clearly reveling in being able to spend quality time with them.  

The 35-year-old might be untouchable on the basketball court, but was forced to apologise to Zhuri when he tracked dirt into the playhouse after entering it.

“Oh my bad, I got your floor dirty,” admits James whilst laughing. Zhuri quickly cleans up his mess – keen to keep her new space spotless.

This snapshot into the lives of the James family is a heartwarming chapter in what has been an emotional week for the NBA superstar.

James racked up 28 points, as well as 14 rebounds and 10 assists in the Lakers’ Championship-clinching victory over the Heat on Sunday and has since dedicated the win to the late Kobe Bryant.

“Hope I made you proud my brother! Love and miss you Champ!” James posted on social media in honour of the former Lakers star – who sadly passed away in January.

Given the interrupted nature of this past season, there is no official word of when the new NBA campaign will get underway.


For now, though, LeBron James can enjoy some long overdue time with his family.

He might, however, want to remove his shoes before he steps inside Zhuri’s new playhouse again!
