Scottie Pippen is mourning the passing of his firstborn son, Antron Pippen.
The NBA legend took to social media to share the share his son died on Sunday at 33.
Scottie mentioned Antron suffered from chronic asthma, but did not reveal his cause of death.
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. 🙏🏾
