Upon checking in, guests will receive a virtual greeting from Pippen, who last month announced the launching of his bourbon company DIGITS.
“When you enter my home, you’ll step into sports history – finding Olympic Games memorabilia from my time as a U.S. Olympian, plus items from Team USA’s 2020 Medal Stand Collection that you can take home with you!” the six-time NBA champion describes in the listing.
Respective guests can bring up to three visitors for the overnight stay, which will include an opportunity to check out the Olympic action from Pippen’s home theater with his indoor basketball court not far away.
Other accessible amenities include:
• An outdoor pool with an outdoor television to remain tuned into the Olympic Games
• Playing a few games of your own in Pippen’s arcade room
• Relaxing in an indoor sauna
• Dining on a pre-game spread of fresh fruits with veggies or Pippen’s big-game dinner of steak, a baked potato and asparagus
The 2010 Naismith Hall of Fame inductee remains one of the most decorated players Team USA has ever had. In the program’s history, he ranks tenth in points (170), third in assists (47) and is tied with LeBron James in steals (36). In 1996, Pippen won his second career gold medal and was named one of the NBA’s 50 Greatest Players ever. His No. 33 is among four retired digits in Bulls history.
The 2020 Tokyo Games were initially scheduled for last summer, but the COVID-19 pandemic pushed them back to this year.
