Like many sports fans around the country, actor Tyrese Gibson recently watched ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary, and who better to watch it with than NBA legend Scottie Pippen? Gibson treated Scottie Pippen and his kids to hibachi at his ‘Gibsihana’ restaurant, a private hibachi restaurant located in his backyard.
Tyrese and his wife Samantha Lee Gibson, along with Scottie and his sons, 19-year-old Scotty Jr., 18-year-old Preston and 14-year-old Justin Pippen, watched “The Last Dance” documentary as they waited for their food. Tyrese shared two videos and a photo of his time with the Pippens in three Instagram posts.
The first two-minute video showed the Pippens watching the documentary and Tyrese Gibson giving a tour of his restaurant. It was captioned: “No big deal… Watching Scottie with Scottie… No worries king my treat! King @scottiepippen shout to the legendary @chefoscarhibachistyle cheers to 7 years of MAGIC of #GibsiHana.”
Tyrese Gibson’s second video was a bit shorter, but it was similar to the first. He captioned it: “Watching Pippen with the Pippen’s… Nope… No one’s welcome!!!!!! Honored Upon honored!!!! Humbled and grateful… I am very clear that this ain’t normal!!!! #TheLastDance.”
The third post was a photo featuring the entire group; the Gibsons, the Pippens, and chef Oscar Briseno (who wore a facemask). Tyrese wrote in the caption: “[Looking up at God once again in disbelief] see my last 3 posts. Watching… #TheLastDance Episode 10 w/ King Scottie was life shifting!!!!!!!!!!!!! Favor ain’t fair watching Scottie with Scottie.”
An all-time NBA great, Scottie Pippen is famous for leading the Chicago Bulls in the 1990’s to six NBA championships in eight years alongside his iconic teammate Michael Jordan. “The Last Dance,” a 10-part documentary that chronicled the Chicago Bulls’ 1997-98 season where they won their sixth championship, recently concluded on May 17. Scottie Pippen was apparently unhappy with his portrayal in the documentary, despite Jordan declaring him as his “best teammate of all-time.”
