In the latest episode of In Depth with Graham Bensinger, LA Lakers power forward and eight-time All-Star player Dwight Howard gives a tour of his Atlanta-based mansion, covering 35,000 square feet of land with a price tag of $8.8 million USD. The mansion holds five kitchens, three laundry rooms, and a massive 14-car garage.

“I can’t believe I have a home like this,” the NBA player says as he walks Bensinger around his garden. “I didn’t grow up with a lot so I literally don’t take anything for granted, and I enjoy every single moment, no matter what it is.” With 15 acres of real estate to maintain, Howard says he has one “amazing” person who does everything for him.

Moving inside, Howard showcases his collection of exotic snakes, some of which can grow up to 25 feet. “I’ve only been bitten three times,” he says with a smile. “It didn’t even hurt!” The two then move on to the Lakers player’s purple Rolls Royce which was inspired by Thanos, who Howard says is his favorite character from The Avengers. “He was able to understand that in order for him to complete his mission, he had to get rid of his emotions,” says Howard. “And that’s the hardest thing we all face.”

Aside from exotic snakes and luxury cars, Howard’s walls are filled with autographed basketball shirts from his favorite players, superhero memorabilia, and framed stills alongside the original Nike sneakers from Back to the Future. He also takes out his gold medal which he won at the 2008 Olympics — something he carries around with him everywhere he goes.

The video, which you can watch in full above, ends with a one-on-one game between Howard and Bensinger on the NBA player’s own court.
