BC received a bitchy email yesterday from Pete in Orlando where the question was raised about the new Busted Coverage Cribs series. “Dude, seriously, who cares if an athlete is selling his house. More cheerleaders and less Scottie Pippen putting green.” Um, Pete, it’s July. Finding cheerleader material is nearly impossible. But locating an athlete who’s been trying to sell a mansion is easy & we are providing a service. Today – J Rich.
Want to know how bad the housing market for million-dollar homes in Oakland is? Jason Richardson has been trying to see this pad ever since he was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats in 2008. He bought the house in March 2007 and wanted to sell a year later for $3,100,000. The place is still for sale and the listing has dropped all the way to $1,950,000, a huge loss from his purchase price of $2,780,000.
