Basketball legend and former Chicago Bulls superstar, Scottie Pippen, had a remarkable career on the court during his seventeen seasons in the NBA. He made the headlines multiple times as an active player for his exploits on the court. He has continued to do so post-basketball, except this time, it is his personal life, i.e., his relationship with Larsa Pippen, with whom he has four kids.
As the wife of the basketball legend, Larsa Pippen, who is of Assyrian heritage, has developed a footprint in the spotlight via her ventures. She has made appearances on the reality TV shows, The Real Housewives of Miami, Keeping Up with the Kardashians and more.
The socialite may be ending her 21-year-old marriage to Scottie, but she will continue to be a fixture in celebrity news.
Following their marriage in 1997, Larsa Pippen, whose maiden name is Younan, and Scottie Pippen, gave birth to four children. Their first child, Scotty Pippen Jr., was born in 2000. Their second child, Preston Pippen, was born two years after in 2002, Justin Pippen, the third child of the marriage, was born in 2005 while the last born, Sophia Pippen, was born in 2008.

Scotty Pippen Jr
The first kid of Larsa Pippen and Scottie Pippen was born on the 10th of November, 2000. He was born in Los Angeles, California and was raised in the city. So far, Scotty Pippen Jr. has taken after his father’s footsteps of becoming a basketball player. At the moment, he is a college player, playing for Vanderbilt University.
He started playing in his high school days at Sierra Canyon High School in LA. As a point guard, he averaged 16.3 points per game, as well as 3.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game in his senior, helping his team to a 32-3 record. He also won the state championship twice as a high school player.
