Though Antron did not share a mother with any of his half-siblings, it's clear he had an undeniable impact on the brood. Antron's mom is Scottie's first wife, Karen McCollum, who has not yet addressed her son's death.

Sierra Pippen – Scottie's 26-year-old daughter, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Yvette Deleone – grieved the family's loss online.

"Took a moment for me to compose this. I can't help but ask why you?" she captioned a series of photos and videos of the basketball player. "I'd like to hear you laugh again. I'm sad I can't call you anymore. The happiest and most humble of us all."

Honoring her spirituality, Sierra added, "Sometimes He wants the good ones too I guess. Father God watch over my big brother, You truly gained someone so special. Keep hooping up there boaaa. You'll never be forgotten and I'll make sure of that. I love you Antron🤞🏽💜gone too soon 😢."

Taylor added the words "Rest In Peace," accompanied by a purple heart emoji. On the next slide, she shared a photo of her standing next to her big bro.
