Retired NBA player Theo Ratliff is selling his over-the-top Atlanta estate. The former shot blocker, who spent 16 seasons in the NBA, looks to be spending his time living it up in luxury. For $5.2 million, you can, too.

While the property doesn’t come cheap, the price tag reflects the opulent setting. Starting at the gated entry and winding driveway of this grand, 14,000-square-foot estate, the columned home looks like the address of someone who made a cool $100 million over his career.

The decor goes all out, and everything looks oversize—perfect for someone of Ratliff’s almost 7-foot height. The well-traveled center last played with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2011, a full three seasons after an infamously massive contract he signed with the Atlanta Hawks in 2001 finally expired.

From the two-story foyer and ornate staircase, to the two-level “gentleman’s room,” the Egyptian-themed theater room, the Moroccan-themed tented sitting room, a wine cellar, a wet bar, guest quarters plus a gym with spa, this space is an all-out spread fit for a baller.

Outdoors, a terrace borders a heated saltwater pool with a waterfall. And, naturally, there’s a basketball court. One-on-one, anyone?
