“Refuel with some of my favorite pre-game foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, or my usual dinner before a big game – steak, baked potato and asparagus,” says Pippen.

The Highland Park House has been on and off the real estate market for a few years. Pippen first listed it in 2019 for $1.89 million around the same time his Fort Lauderdale, Florida home was also on the market, Architectural Digest reported.
