I can’t remember right now off the top of my head, but Bryn Forbes either had a really sick Summer League or a really sick preseason. Or both. Could be both. In any case, he showed that he can score the rock in a professional setting. He can shoot jimbos, but he can also take it to the CUP. He was, dare I say, a DYNAMIC scorer?
Popovich is the biggest deceiver in the league. He has deceived us for years, claiming that he can develop talent, but now those lies are coming unraveled as he blatantly and without remorse marginalizes Forbes and prevents him from reaching his full potential. Let it be clear: this is in no way Forbes’ fault. Popovich and his joke of a coaching staff are to blame. Solely. Wholly.
Forbes had a breakout game in defiance of his bumbling coaches late last year, scoring 27. You’d think that’d be enough to secure legit minutes to score legit points, but no. We’ve been over this; Popovich. Tonight, he scraped together 22 opportunistic points, succeeding despite not getting to be the number one option on offense as he deserves. I would say that I hope to see more of this going forward, but we all know that isn’t going to happen.
Stop marginalizing Bryn Forbes right now.
