A Lansing mom fears fame and fortune will ruin her chance to gain custody of her two young sons. Their father is Bryn Forbes, a rising NBA player with the San Antonio Spurs and a former Sexton High School and Michigan State University basketball player. Forbes, 24, has gained attention as an undrafted free agent who recently moved up as a key player with the Spurs. The never-married pair are locked in a tense fight before Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Janelle Lawless. The court must decide whether the boys will stay in Texas with their father or come back to Michigan where their mother, Raelynn Taylor, 25, lives.

Cuban offered advice to the next Williamson-caliber player who comes along, especially if it happens before the minimum draft age is lowered to 18. “The next kid in a similar circumstance, go to the G-League, or Europe,” he said. “If you want the international adventure and the exposure to a different type of basketball and different skill sets, go to Europe. If that’s not your thing and you’re not in-tuned to it for whatever reason, and you’ve got a big social media following like Zion Williamson? Go G-League.”
Cuban over the years has expressed concern about the life skills that even some one-and-done players have lacked when coming into the NBA after barely attending college before turning professional. “Got here, didn’t know how to write a check, didn’t know how to sign a lease,” Cuban said Friday. “Just needed somebody basically to hold their hand and it made things difficult for them. It’s hard to focus on your profession when you don’t even know how to focus on the everyday skills that are required for life.”
