Replacing a legend is never easy, but at least the new Lakers coach will be living legendarily.

And at a $1.5 million discount.

The OC Register reports the guy who replaced Phil Jackson purchased a 15-room Mediterranean-style home that had been on listed for as much as $4.5 million. He got the mansion for a cool $3 mil.

Brown's palace is tricked out with all the bling bling you'd expect from a musician or star athlete. It comes loaded with a spray tanning booth, 350-gallon aquarium, temperature-controlled fur closet, massage room, salt water pool, grotto and lighted tennis court.

Brown went 272-138 (.663) while coaching LeBron James' Cavaliers over five seasons with a 42-29 (.592) playoff record.

One downside: The 2009 NBA coach of the year, who spent the last few years living in Ohio, clearly isn't familiar with Los Angeles traffic patterns. Unless he buys a helicopter, Brown will be spending lots of time in Los Angeles gridlock.
