Larsa Pippen Pays Tribute To Scottie Pippen's Late Son, Antron

Scottie Pippen's son, Antron Pippen, tragically died on April 18, 2021 at 33 years old. Scottie confirmed the sad news on his Instagram account on April 19, 2021 when he shared several photos of the two together over the years, alongside a heartrending caption. Scottie wrote that he was "heartbroken" by Antron's passing as he recalled how the two shared a big love of basketball and how he believed his firstborn would have made it big in the NBA had it not been for his asthma. 

"He never let that get him down," Scottie wrote, sharing that his late son "stayed positive and worked hard" and he was "so proud of the man that he became." The retired professional basketball player also asked his fans to keep his family, including Antron's mom Karen McCollum, in his prayers, and finished up his post by writing, "A kind heart and beautiful soul gone way too soon. I love you, son, rest easy until we meet again." Scottie did not confirm Antron's cause of death.
