This Illinois Abandoned Mansion, Once Owned By An NBA Player, Is Just Sad To Look At
From NBA player and Chicago native, Ken Norman, played professional basketball for 10 seasons for three different teams, primarily the Los Angeles Clippers. (He never played for the Chicago Bulls.)
Norman had a mansion built around an existing house in Homewood, Illinois in 1989. He moved out of the home in the early 2000s, according to Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicles, and is said to have used a go-kart to get around town.
The mansion appears to be in total ruin and has clearly been abandoned and vandalized since he moved.
Before we take a tour of this property, under no circumstances should anyone enter the property as they will face prosecution, risk potential injury, or worse.
