Tragic news has struck Scottie Pippen and his family as he announced his oldest son Antron passed away at the age of 33. He had chronic asthma and was dealing with this problem for years now. His dad Scottie shared an emotional post on social media about the tragic loss of his firstborn son. Prayers up for Scottie Pippen and his family.
I’m heartbroken to share that yesterday, I said goodbye to my firstborn son Antron. The two of us shared a love for basketball and we had countless conversations about the game. Antron suffered from chronic asthma and if he hadn’t had it, I truly believe he would've made it to the NBA. He never let that get him down, though—Antron stayed positive and worked hard, and I am so proud of the man that he became. Please keep his mom, Karen, and all of his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. A kind heart and beautiful soul gone way too soon. I love you, son, rest easy until we meet again
