Major League Baseball teams have offered the chance to sleep in the outfield, so it was only a matter of time before a fan would have a chance to sleep in an NBA arena.
The Chicago Bulls, in conjunction with Airbnb, the company that allows people to buy or sell a night's stay in an apartment or home, announced Monday that they would give away a chance to stay in team owner Jerry Reinsdorf's suite on the night of April 11.
The most convincing response on the Bulls' listing on the Airbnb site will win a night's stay with a guest at the United Center. The winner gets tickets to that night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, a pregame dinner, a locker-room tour, custom jerseys, time with Bulls great Scottie Pippen, a movie on the giant video screen and breakfast in the morning.
The Bulls and Airbnb say the suite will be redesigned to make it a comfortable night for the fans.
