His message, however, revealed the deep pain and struggle he was enduring.
“I’m heartbroken to share that yesterday, I said goodbye to my firstborn son Antron,” the caption to his post began. “The two of us shared a love for basketball and we had countless conversations about the game.

Scottie went on to share how incredibly proud he was of his son. “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,” he wrote. “Please keep his mom, Karen [McCollum], 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.” HollywoodLife reached out to Scottie Pippen’s rep regarding the devastating news.
