PIPPEN'S SPRAWLING ABODE
The 6 ft 8 basketball legend opened the door to his Chicago home which he mostly referred to as a vacation home. Pippen's first reveal was the palatial dining area that housed some of his priced artifacts from Venice.
The walkway within the house had a ceiling-to-floor shelf that housed his accolades. Six replicas of his NBA titles and All-Star MVP award, to mention a few.
Pippen showed his kitchen next and a smaller dining area that overlooked the pool area and a green space for little golf games.
THE INDOOR INCENTIVES
When it gets cold and clammy, there would be a need to stay indoors and Pippen made sure to provide for a fun-filled indoor time. The NBA alum has sporty setups, including an air hockey table, board games, and without doubt, an indoor basketball court to help relish NBA days.
He said about the sport that made him famous, "Basketball has been my life…" Pippen mentioned that his kids find the court very helpful, making him realize it was a thoughtful investment.
