Looks like "J-Rich" is more than just a nickname. Longtime NBA guard Jason Richardson will head into retirement with a nice chunk of change after listing his more than 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom Denver mansion for $3 million.

The star swingman broke into the league with the Golden State Warriors and was part of the team's amazing playoff run in 2007. In 2002 and 2003, Richardson slammed his way to victory in the NBA Dunk Contest -- making him the second player (after Michael Jordan) to win the contest two times in a row. He retired in September after 13 seasons with five squads.

 

Richardson's custom-built home is one of the largest in the neighborhood and offers plenty of amenities to justify its size, including a built-in elevator, temperature-controlled wine cellar, and a laundry room-sized safe. The grand dcor -- from the curved wooden staircase in the entryway to the kitchen's enormous, granite-topped island -- makes this Denver mansion feel truly luxurious.

"It's been completely updated and professionally designed," says listing agent Megan Quinn of Madison & Company Properties. "It's a gorgeous house -- you've just got to find the right people."

 

Could you be the right person? Here's one easy test: Do you like sipping wine with a coffee chaser, all while luxuriating in the bathtub? If so, you're in luck, because the master bath features a breakfast bar complete with espresso machine and wine fridge. Cheers to you, J-Rich!
