Son of Michael Jordan, Marcus Uses Stephen Curry and Jayson Tatum as Examples to Reject Larsa Pippen’s Opinion

Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan, the son of basketball star Michael Jordan, now openly share their relationship. They started a podcast where they talk about their relationship and answer questions about their age difference. In one episode, Pippen even said that Marcus is better than older basketball players.

The couple believes that they have a similar understanding and maturity in their relationship. However, in a recent podcast episode, Larsa Pippen expressed her criticism towards NBA players who are parents to their children. On the other hand, Marcus Jordan disagreed with her viewpoint and provided examples of modern NBA players who are good parents.

In a recent episode of their podcast called ‘Separation Anxiety with Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan‘, they talked about parenting. Larsa Pippen criticized NBA players for their way of raising children. She mentioned that some NBA players who became parents at a young age didn’t do a good job. According to her, getting married and having children later in their 30s made them better parents.

Jordan didn’t agree and said it’s not always true. He talked about NBA players like Jayson Tatum and Stephen Curry, who he thinks are good parents. He also mentioned how his dad included him and his brothers in his basketball career. He believes being a good parent depends on the person and the situation.

“I know a lot of guys who had kids when they were 25, like a lot of guys in the NBA and I think they were not great parents and they end up getting married or having kids as they’re older in their 30’s …when I see the difference in how they were as a parent when they were younger..,” Larsa said.

“I think it’s just an overgeneralization because I feel like if you look at NBA players today like Jayson Tatum, he’s always having his son and Steph Curry always had his kids, even my dad when we were young, we went to all the Chicago Bulls homes games when he retired both times, he had us with there with him, raising the banner… so I feel like it varies and it’s very situational,” Marcus replied.

Stephen Curry and Jayson Tatum are great parents

Jayson Tatum is a loving dad to his 5-year-old son, Deuce. He brings Deuce to his games, plays with him before games, and shares special moments with him. They have a strong bond and create happy memories together.

Stephen Curry also shows love for his daughter. Riley, his 10-year-old daughter, was present at the home games after his team won the championship in 2022. He included her in the celebration during the championship parade. He is a proud father to his daughter and never fails to express it.
