Two-time Olympic gold medalist Scottie Pippen, along with Airbnb, is handing over the keys to his Chicago home to let three lucky fans watch the 2021 Olympics in ostentatious style. 

“For one individual night, three guests have the chance to come into my home to really experience watching the Games,” the former Chicago Bulls two-guard said. Pippen, who was a part of the 1992 U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball Team, also known as “The Dream Team,” promises “the ultimate Olympic experience” for those interested in staying in his mega-mansion.

He will meet those who enter his home via a virtual meet-and-greet before guests will be given free rein to shoot hoops on his indoor basketball court, work out in his “little” in-home gym, explore his Olympic memorabilia, and watch the Summer Games in his personal movie theater and more, according to the Airbnb announcement made Wednesday, July 14.

“You can even watch the Olympics from my pool [because] I got a beautiful 80-inch TV outside,” Pippen said. Guests will also “get to sleep in my bed at the end of the night,” Pippen teased, adding there are even more surprises in store.

The Chicago-area mansion will be open for three separate one-night stays on August 2, 4, and 6. Each stay will cost just $92 a night—a nod to Pippen’s first Olympic win in 1992, which led him to become the USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year.
