Scottie Pippen recently opened up about his healing process following the death of his son Antron, who passed away at the age of 33 in April.
The 55-year-old former professional basketball player gave an exclusive interview to People this week, where he spoke about his state of mind following the untimely loss of his oldest child.
The star athlete shared his late son with his first wife, Karen McCollum, and previously made an announcement regarding Antron's passing on his Instagram account.

Pippen told the media outlet that, although he is still coping with his eldest child's passing, he has learned how to keep himself going in the aftermath of his tragic loss.
'I'm good. I still have my moments of ups and downs, but I'm good. I will continue to gain strength because today there is none,' he noted.
The former Chicago Bulls team member did point out that, although he missed his son greatly, he was committed to moving forward.
'There's never enough time. But I've managed, and I'll continue to heal,' the former athlete expressed.

Pippen then spoke about spending his first Father's Day without Antron and recalled that he still made time to speak to his son's children despite not being at home.
'He noted: It was tough. I was kind of on the road. I did a camp back in Arkansas, so I wasn't really around my kids. I spent it with my siblings in Arkansas. I was on the phone with [his children].'
The former Olympian welcomed his eldest child in 1987, a year prior to marrying McCollum.
The two went on to dissolve their union in 1989, and the athlete eventually married his second wife, Larsa, whom he divorced earlier this year.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
