  The Tragic Real-Life Story Of Scottie Pippen

Scottie Pippen was born Scotty Maurice Pippen, the youngest of a dozen children to Preston, a paper mill factory worker, and Ethel Pippen on September 25, 1965, in Hamburg, Arkansas. Pippen’s childhood home was a two-room house, and the town he lived in had only a population of around 3,500 people. Both his parents were tall (his mother was 6 feet), and while Pippen would eventually become the tallest member in his family, during his adolescent and teenage years, he was still the runt of the litter on the basketball court where he and his siblings spent their days.

During Scottie’s freshman year at Hamburg High School, he and the rest of his family took a big hit when his father suffered a stroke that placed him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, according to the Chicago Tribune. The family struggled financially before the stroke and could not afford to send any of their children to university. It seemed like Scottie’s only shot at college might be through an athletic scholarship, and he threw himself into sports.
