Scottie Pippen holds a legacy unchallenged in the sports sphere. Michael Jordan’s right-hand man on the court was no mere second fiddle and held a game unparalleled even to the modern NBA. His 17-year professional career is amongst the most heralded in our lifetime and we are deeply saddened by this weekend’s revelation.
Scottie’s social sharing cited the synonymous cross-generational admiration for the industry of a competition that made Pippen a household name. Antron held NBA ambitions and his surviving father mentioned: “countless conversations about the game” he had with his son when divulging the news.
Antron would not let his condition alter his course of achieving his dream during his lifetime. He would follow up his college career, balling for Texas A&M International University, by playing in the WBA for the Upstate Heat.
“Please keep his mom, Karen, and all of his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers,” Scottie Pippen wrote. “A kind heart and beautiful soul, gone away too soon. I love you, son, rest easy until we meet again.”
