Carmelo Anthony loses $6 million on house sale: Hope he's happy in NYC (PHOTOS)

Last summer, some observers were still optimistic that Carmelo Anthony might remain a Denver Nugget. But their confidence was shaken when he put his Polo Ridge Estates mansion on the market for $9.5 million. A year later, the spread has finally sold for $6.2 million -- more than $3 million under the asking price and $6 million less than the $12.2 million he paid for it in 2007. And if you think that's funny, Nugs fans, just take a look at the place.
