Justin Pippen and Scottie Pippen celebrated Father’s Day together

Even before his siblings greeted their dad on Father’s Day, Justin Pippen bonded with his father, Scottie Pippen, throughout an entire day for a vlog posted by Slam High School.

In their basketball game called “pig,” the father and son duo also talked some trash to each other while playing:

"You can't beat me in anything," Justin Pippen said to his dad.

Pippen is a four-star senior in high school, and in April, he committed to the Michigan Wolverines. The 6-foot-3 guard attended the Sierra Canyon High School in California.

After committing to Michigan, Pippen talked to ESPN about his decision and plans after concluding his high school career.

"I like the feel of the campus and school," Pippen said. "I wanted to be at a big school. They can help me reach my end goal of making the NBA."
"I was really going to make a decision between my other schools. Then I got a call from Coach Dusty May. ... I went on a visit, and I felt it was the right place and situation for me. Coach Dusty May has been straight up with me. He sees me playing both on and off the ball. He even mentioned they are bringing in other guys."

According to ESPN, Justin Pippen has a good chance to make it into their top 100 rankings in 2024.
