On Mother’s Day, Forbes has plenty of reasons beyond the obvious to be grateful for the woman he also calls his “rock.” For starters, he believes he wouldn’t be in the NBA without Sue Forbes’ sacrifices and encouragement. “She has been my biggest supporter,” Forbes said. “She had an expectation for me, and she made me live up to it. She gave me a lot of tough love. Outside of my kids, she is the most important person in my life. I can’t begin to describe how amazing she is.” But it’s not just what his mother did while raising him as a single parent in East Lansing, Mich. Now a single parent himself of two boys, Forbes is leaning on Sue, 67, to help him raise Carter, 5, and Leo, 2. “I wouldn’t be able to do it without her,” he said. “She is there for me 24/7.”
Spurs guard Patty Mills, who has been a mentor to Forbes, said the love that flows from Sue to her son and grandsons is evident. “You see her every now and then, and she has the biggest smile on her face,” Mills said. “Not a problem in the world is what it seems to say to me when I say hello. She is a very kind-hearted woman. We’ve had her over for barbecues and whatever with the kids. It’s a very unique, special situation I am glad to witness.” On the road, Forbes checks in on his mother and his sons in the locker room before games. After saying goodbye, he returns to his job unworried about what is going on back home. “When I am on the road, I know everything is good,” he said.
From a camaraderie standpoint, injured point guard Dejounte Murray’s presence on this trip has given the Spurs a boost. “To have him around, feel his energy, hear his voice, it’s a great thing,” guard Bryn Forbes said after shootaround Tuesday morning at the Pepsi Center. “And I think it’s good for him too.” But the main reason Murray is accompanying the Spurs on the road throughout the playoffs is to learn more about the game, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.
