Scotty Pippen Jr – Vanderbilt Basketball

“Some obstacles I’ve had to overcome would be trying to deal with people hating on me because of my dad or just setting me at a higher standard because of him. This is something I’ve dealt with my whole life though.”

“My advice to younger players would be just to know how short your window is and just to always believe that you can be as good as you want to be. I used to think I wouldn’t be as good as some of the ranked players in my class but now I feel that I’m as good as anyone. My goals are to make it to the NBA and to succeed at that level. Some more goals this year are to be able to make the All-SEC team and just to turn this losing Vanderbilt culture around.”

“Growing up with my dad I always felt pressure to perform because I felt people were always watching me and seeing how good I was because of him. This helped me because I enjoy pressure and enjoy having a reason to play.”

“The role models in my life are my dad and my uncles because they have always pushed me and made me a better person on and off the court. Also, just watching how they are and how hard they work makes me look up to them.”

“Racial equality is something that I hope could change not only in the world, but in sports, so I hope it will change fast, but I think only time will tell.”
