The Chicago home of two-time Olympic gold medalist and Bulls great Scottie Pippen hits Airbnb to coincide with the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

Pippen’s Highland Park mansion is open for three separate overnight stays in early August at a symbolic rate of $ 92 per night, a reference to Pippen’s 1992 Olympic gold, according to People.com.

Reservations open for Pippen’s house on July 22. Those who manage to book one of the three nights can bring three guests and can play basketball on its indoor court, relax in the sauna or swimming pool, and visit its extensive collection of trophies and memorabilia.

Its home theater will be open to watch the Tokyo Olympics, as well as archival footage from the Dream Team’s Olympic race in 1992.

Airbnb regularly creates new bookings for its Airbnb Online Experience promotion. The platform also hosts an online question-and-answer session with Pippen’s 1992 teammates Larry Bird and Patrick Ewing.

The platform also got five overnight stays at the Bel Air Mansion where “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” was filmed as a promotion for the show’s 30th anniversary.
Pippen’s publicity stunt could also serve as a marketing stunt.

In October 2018, he lowered the asking price for the 10,000 square foot home to $ 2.25 million.

Meanwhile, his Bulls and Dream Team mate Michael Jordan is still trying to sell his own mansion in Highland Park, this one a 30,000 square foot property.
