I’m never not going to be hyped for Bryn Forbes. He’s like what we’d be seeing with Devin Booker right now if he was on a team that was a contender instead of a team that only wants to develop players. I’m exaggerating, but not even by that much. Booker had the keys to the Ferrari, not from day one, but pretty early on. Forbes gets to ride the pine for almost his whole first year, then doesn’t get a ton of touches his second.
Forbes proved in Summer League that he can ball out hard when given first-option opportunities. “B-b-but Dee Tee Bee!” you cry in disbelief as you push your thick-lensed glasses up the bridge of your gigantic misshapen nose. “S-s-summer League is not a good measure of skill because no defense is being p-p-played!” Shut up. Just shut up. I don’t want to hear it. Forbes could average 20 points, 20 god-diddly-damn points right now, RIGHT NOW, but he is being held down by a team that is quickly developing a track record of not being able to develop its players.
