07:13 AM ET 08.22 | Just this past week, Chicago's Nazr Mohammed and his wife moved from a rental house in Lake Forest to an apartment downtown. With 16 seasons in the NBA and this year's $1.4 million contract, Mohammed could afford to buy a house, but at the moment, he's a committed renter. ... "We're renting because I've bought houses twice, and both times I got burned. The first time I bought was in Atlanta in about 2002. ... My financial adviser told me it wasn't the best thing to do considering in my profession you never know how long you're going to be in one place. But I didn't listen. I bought a townhouse -- 3,500 square feet, three bedrooms -- for under $500,000. [After I left Atlanta in 2004], it took a long time to get sold, and we eventually lost about fifty grand on it.
