Antron Pippen was the late son of former American basketball player Scottie Pippen. Like his legendary father, Pippen also loved basketball but sadly just passed away at the age of 33 in 2021.

Talking about his father Scottie is a former American NBA player who is the only one to win both the NBA title and the Olympic medal (1992,1996). The former Chicago Bulls star (1987-1998) is one of the greatest small forwards of all time, winning 7-time NBA All-Star and 6-time NBA Champion.

The firstborn of Scottie, who died at a young age, also loved basketball. But what actually happened to Antron Pippen before his death? Today we will learn about his mysterious demise, his career, his relationship with his parents in the past, and much more

Who is Antron Pippen? What happened to him?

Antron Pippen was the firstborn son of Scottie Pippen and Karen McCollum, born December 29, 1987 in Lawrenceville, Georgia. He was an American citizen while his ethnicity was African American.

On April 18, 2021, the star child was found dead in Atlanta, Georgia. He was only 33 when he died. Even after a year after his death, none of his relatives have the… exact reasons for his death to the public.

After his death, Antro’s father Scottie mourned his death in a tweet that wrote:

“I am devastated that I said goodbye to my firstborn son Antron yesterday. We shared a love for basketball and had countless conversations about the game. Antron suffered from chronic asthma and if he hadn’t had it I truly believe he would have made it to the NBA. He never let him down though, Antron stayed positive and worked hard, and I’m so proud of the man he has become.”

Antron’s mother was also devastated by the news of the death of her only child. Like any mother, her heart was not ready for this heartbreaking news. At his funeral ceremony in Georgia on April 24, Pippen’s mother wrote an emotional tribute to her precious son:

Son, it was a pleasure and an honor to be your mother. You left me with so many wonderful memories that I will cherish every day. Your transition has left a huge chasm in my heart and the pain is quite unbearable. I will miss you terribly and my love for you is forever. Rest well, my little boy, until we meet again.”

Half sister of Antron Pippen passed away years ago

The basketball game’s first son wasn’t the only child to die. Prior to Antron, his half-sister named Tyler Pippen (born July 20, 1994) had a tragic death in hospital nine days after her birth.

Apart from this, he has 6 more half siblings who are alive and doing well in their lives. They are Taylor Pippen, Sierra Pippen, Scotty Pippen Jr., Preston Pippen, Justin Pippen and Sophia Pippen.

Antron Played Basketball Since High School – His Education Details

Pippen completed his primary education at Collins Hill High School. He later enrolled at Texas A&M International University.

Like his father, Antron was interested in basketball and played for South Georgia Tech and Texas A&M International. In the year 2013, the late bloomer was signed to the Upstate Heat team of the World Basketball Association. Meanwhile, he shot 85% from the free throw line, averaging 21.6 points, 6.1 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 3 steals.

While the late star boy was playing with a local team in Atlanta, he was simultaneously serving as a machine technician in a lab. Unfortunately, despite his passion for basketball, he couldn’t make it to the NBA like his father.

Antron is one of seven children born to American NBA player Scottie Pippen. He was professional between 1987 and 2004 and played a total of 17 seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

He is one of the greatest small forwards of all time who has been instrumental in transforming the Chicago Bulls into a championship team. Along with Michael Jordan, he is the reason behind the NBA basketball team’s recognition around the world in the 1990s.

Scottie also had a great career playing for other popular teams such as Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers, Torpan Pojat and Sundsvall Dragon. Talking about his achievements in the 17 years of his career, he is a 6-time NBA Champion and 7-time NBA All-Star. He was also NBA Steel Leader in the year 1995.

His parents divorced years after their marriage

Antron Pippens’ father, Scottie Pippen, and his mother, Karen McCollum, are no longer together. They broke up a long time ago. His father and mother, a basketball player, who played the role of pianist on the CW show, were reportedly longtime lovers.

The couple was by each other’s side for seven years. Unfortunately, the spark in their relationship started to fade, causing problems in their married life. Due to some unavoidable problems in their married life, the former couple divorced in 1995, ending their nearly ten-year marriage.

Fortunately, their breakup was not bitter when they decided to remain friends for the sake of their little boy. The duo raised their child co-parenting in a friendly environment to fulfill all his wants and demands.
