Scottie Pippen Offers Chicago Home For $ 92 On Airbnb
Scottie Pippen gives fans one last dance in his own Chicago home.
The six-time NBA champion opens his Highland Park mansion to Olympic fans for $ 92 a night on Airbnb.
The cost is a nod to the year he and his teammates became Olympic gold medalists at Barcelona in 1992.
Fans have the option to stay for three overnight stays for up to four people on August 2, 4 or 6.
Stays are timed so that guests can attend basketball competitions from the group stage to gold and silver medal games in Tokyo.
“In honor of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, I invite basketball fans to my home in Chicago to relive one of the highlights of my career – participating in the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games. May you encourage the next generation of Olympians from my field! wrote the former Bull on the real estate rental site.
According to Pippen, lucky guests will have the opportunity to take home memorabilia from Team USA’s 2020 medal collection, play on their indoor basketball court (one on one or a game of HORSE) and to see the Olympics from his home theater.
Guests will also have the option of relaxing by the swimming pool, which has an outdoor TV where you can also stream the Olympics, play in the arcade room and enjoy the indoor sauna after a game of basketball. .
Pippen explained that guests will receive “a virtual greeting upon check-in” from him.
“Refuel with some of my favorite pre-game foods, including fresh fruits and veg, or my usual dinner before a big game – a steak, a baked potato and asparagus,” added Pippen.
The ad is part of an Airbnb promotion, as the company is the Global Olympic and Paralympic Partner of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
“As a two-time former Olympian, I really wanted to give fans the experience of what it’s like to watch games from home,” Pippen told the Chicago Tribune. “I have a basketball court and a nice swimming pool. It was the opportunity to give a fan a chance to really live this experience and watch the games from home and sleep in my bed.
The Olympics were supposed to be held last summer, but due to the pandemic the games have been postponed until this summer.
