Scottie Pippen Rents His Chicago Mansion For Under $ 100 A Night On Airbnb
NBA Hall of Fame and six-time champion Scottie Pippen wants you to stay and watch the Olympics in his home theater. So, either you are the big man’s best friend or a very lucky Airbnb customer looking for a cool place to stay in Chicago.
Okay, for most of us this is the second choice. That’s right, the home of Pippen’s Highland Park will be available on Airbnb for only $ 92 a night on August 2, 4 or 6, 2021. This price is not just a bargain; it refers to 1992, the year Pippen and his fellow Dream Team members won gold at Barcelona.
Up to four people at a time will have the chance to stay at Pippen’s for one of those August nights. The dates matter – they were set to allow Pippen’s lucky guests to watch the gold and silver medal matches at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
Pippen Airbnb announcement is written like in his own words, so let Scottie tell you more:
When you enter my house you will enter [sports] history – find memorabilia from the Olympics from my time as an American Olympian, as well as items from Team USA’s 2020 medal rack collection that you can take home!
During your overnight stay, you and up to three guests have the opportunity to watch the magic of Olympic basketball competitions on NBCUniversal’s broadcast networks and streaming services from my home theater, and channel your inner athlete on my indoor basketball court.
This is the tip of the iceberg. Here’s more what to expect if you hang out on one of those nights:
- Pippen will provide a “virtual greeting while checking in”, ie by video, looks like.
- You can shoot baskets on Scottie Pippen’s indoor basketball court.
- Relax in Pippen’s “Personal Movie Theater and Watch the Olympics on NBCUniversal’s broadcast networks and streaming services during stay days, including men’s and women’s basketball.”
- Hey, weather permitting, you can even “relax in the open air by the pool, with an outdoor TV so you don’t miss a moment of the Olympics.”
- Guests can play in Pippen’s personal video games room or “take a break from playing on the field in the indoor sauna”.
- Airbnb guests will also receive “exclusive access to view memorabilia from the Olympic Games, including items from Team USA’s 2020 medal holder collection that guests can take home.”
Pippen SEO is – of course – an Airbnb promotion. We’re pretty sure he doesn’t need the money. Airbnb is an Olympic and Paralympic partner of the Tokyo Olympics, which are technically the 2020 games delayed by one year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
