“Antron suffered from chronic asthma and if he hadn’t had it, I truly believe he would've made it to the NBA,” he continued. “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.” “Please keep his mom, Karen, and all of his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. A kind heart and beautiful soul gone way too soon. I love you, son, rest easy until we meet again,” Scottie concluded. Scottie did not reveal Antron’s cause of death in the post.
