The iconic Chicago Bulls basketball player, Scottie Pippen, is mourning the passing of his oldest son, Antron.
The former NBA player on Monday announced the passing of his 33-year-old son, Antron, with a heartbreaking Instagram tribute, including several pictures of himself with his late son.
In the caption, the 55-year-old has dedicated a touching tribute to his oldest son, Antron, who passed away after a ‘heroic’ battle with chronic asthma on Monday aged 33.
“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. 🙏🏾 “
