Scottie Pippens shared via Instagram that his eldest son, Antron, has passed away. He shared that his son suffered from chronic asthma. He pens via Instagram, “I’m heartbroken to share that yesterday, I said goodbye to my firstborn son Antron.

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.”
Please keep Antron’s friends, family, and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers. May he rest peacefully.
