Scotty Pippen Jr., the 20-year-old son of NBA legend Scottie and Larsa Pippen, wants no part of his mother’s controversies.
Larsa Pippen was recently spotted with a married NBA player, Malik Beasley, in public. She got a ton of flak from NBA fans for associating with him. Some of the hate was also diverted towards her son Scotty, a college basketball player for Vanderbilt University.
The photographs of Larsa and Malik Beasley are seemingly from Miami on November 23rd. Beasley’s wife, Montana Yao, is said to have been “blindsided” by the images.
Malik Beasley is also facing drug charges and gun violations along with his wife in the state of Minnesota. The guard has had a chequered offseason, despite securing a $60 million contract from the Timberwolves.
Scotty Pippen Jr distances himself from Larsa Pippen’s antics
Following a huge wave of hate for Larsa, Scotty felt the need to make a Twitter post.
“Focused on myself and my goals. I’m not responsible for nobody’s actions. All good over here,” Pippen Jr. tweeted.
He also “liked” a tweet that read, “Dear Scotty Pippen Jr if you are reading this stay focused kid, don’t worry about social media, i know thats ya moms but you gotta control what you can control,”
Focused on myself and my goals. I’m not responsible for nobody’s actions. All good over here.🤞

Pippen Jr will be looking to get past all this negativity and get the best out of the college basketball season. He got off to a good start with a 25-point outing in the first game of the college season recently.
In his second season, Pippen Jr will be hoping to make a significant name for himself and earn attention from NBA draft scouts. Scotty is a 6’1″ point guard, and he will need to significantly improve his shooting if he wants to enter the NBA.
