Sports celebrity Carlos Boozer, from Utah Jazz, sold his Coconut Grove Estate on June 15th at a loss of $800,000 (as per the MLS numbers) - Deseret News informs us:

According to the MLS history, he bought the home for $6.3 million in May of 2007 and then put it up for sale for $8.9 million in September 08 with a price decreases in February 09 ($7.9 million) and then again July 09 ($6.9 million).
