Second-Generation Sports Stars Burst into Scene
Trinity Rodman and Scotty Pippen Jr. are second-generation sports stars making a mark in the sports world. Although Dennis Rodman and Scottie Pippen have already retired their jerseys, their legacies live on via their kids.
Trinity Rodman doesn’t play basketball like her father. However, she is on her way to becoming a household name in professional soccer. Recently, she scored her first goal for the Washington Spirit.
Rodman made sports headlines when she became the youngest player drafted in the National Women’s Soccer League. The 18-year-old scored in her debut game in the league. However, her goal was not enough to save her team from a 2-3 defeat against North Carolina Courage.

According to bookie PPH reports, the younger Rodman gave all the credit to her mother. In an interview before the game, she said that her mother is her rock. Her father was known for being a defensive player. However, Trinity is more of a scorer. After scoring nine goals for Team US U-20 team in the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 tournament, she was in the spotlight.
On the other hand, Pippen Jr. took up the sport that his father is known for. The 20-year-old played for Vanderbilt University, where he averaged 20 points, five assists, and three rebounds in his sophomore year. It was a considerable jump from averaging 12 points, four assists, and three rebounds as a freshman.
According to a sportsbook pay per head blog, Pippen Jr. applied for the NBA Draft. He said that he was blessed to have the opportunity to play for Vanderbilt University. He would never forget his time with the university.
If you don’t have the talent to play pro sports, you can still be part of the sports world by becoming a bookie. You might be surprised at how bookies make money.
