Antron was born in 1987 to Karen McCollum — who married Scottie in 1988 (they split in 1990).
The family held a ceremony for Antron on April 24th — and afterward, Karen posted a note to her baby boy.
“Son, it has been such a pleasure and honor to be your mother. You’ve left me with so many wonderful memories that I will treasure daily.”
“Your transition has left a huge gap in my heart and the pain is quite unbearable.”
“I will miss you tremendously and my love for you is for ever. Rest well, my baby boy, until we meet again.”
Scottie was very proud of his firstborn son, who played college basketball at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) and South Georgia Technical College.
“Antron suffered from chronic asthma and if he hadn’t had it, I truly believe he would’ve made it to the NBA. 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.”
