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.

So Leonard will zip up his parka, play an obligatory season with the Raptors, respectfully decline their offer for a long-term supermax contract and bid adieu to the Great White North next summer … just as the Lakers, who conspicuously have been signing free agents to one-year contracts, clear salary cap space for him to join LeBron James. Right? That’s the off-the-rack take. Here’s what someone who knows Leonard as well as anybody told me privately: “He’s going to fall in love with Toronto – it’s going to happen. He’s not going to leave, I’m telling you.”
But with all of the off the court stuff taken care of for now, Jabari Parker’s main focus is getting in to the best shape of his life, as he prepares for a full season as a wing player. Part of Parker’s preparation was a great pickup game in downtown Chicago organized by the Chicago Basketball Club. For Bulls fans itching to get a look at Parker on the court, the video shows off some flashy passing ability, impressive handles and a flurry of pull-up jumpers from the 23-year old forward. He also finishes well in transition in the video, though that is to be taken with a grain of salt as Parker was easily the biggest player on the court.

Jordan Schultz: Palpable buzz is building around #76ers guard Markelle Fultz. One league source privy to Fultz’s workouts w/famed hoops trained Drew Hanlen tells me Fultz’s jumper is rebuilt and that a result, the 20-year-old guard is a completely different, vastly improved player.
