Milwaukee Bucks: Bryn Forbes praises Big 3, relishes time in Milwaukee
Bryn Forbes quickly proved to be a perfect fit for the Milwaukee Bucks after they signed him during the 2020 NBA offseason.
The veteran carved out a role for himself in the second unit and played a key role for the Bucks during their title-winning season. After winning the NBA championship, Forbes signed with the San Antonio Spurs in free agency, where he had played the previous four seasons before joining the Bucks the year before. Upon returning to the Spurs, Forbes had time to reflect on the eventful 2021-22 season with the Bucks. He specifically highlighted the unselfishness he witnessed while playing alongside Milwaukee’s leading trio of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, and guard Jrue Holiday.
Bryn Forbes couldn’t say enough about how unselfish the Big 3 in Milwaukee are: “It makes the game a lot easier, especially with what I do.” — Tom Orsborn (@tom_orsborn) September 29, 2021
Of course, Forbes is referring to his electric 3-point shooting, which has helped him earn his keep in this league with the Spurs and Bucks. While he has always been a solid shooter from deep, the two-guard caught fire last season and shot a career-high 45.2 percent from behind the arc. Given how much the Bucks embrace shooting, Forbes was fantastic. This was particularly evident in the opening playoff matchup versus the Miami Heat, where Forbes simply took over and had a series for the ages. Bucks fans will always thank him for that. This sweet-shooting was something that he said playing with the Big 3 helped make it a reality because it was something he factored into his workouts during the offseason.
Bryn on shooting a career-high 45.2% from deep last season with Bucks: “Playing with three All-Stars in Jrue, Giannis and Khris, there are going to be openings on the floor, but also I worked on my shot all summer. I was preparing to play with those guys.” — Tom Orsborn (@tom_orsborn) September 29, 2021
Although his time with the Milwaukee Bucks was brief, Bryn Forbes undeniably left a strong impression
On the floor, there is no denying that Forbes was a seamless fit with the leading trio. This was most evident when he played alongside Antetokounmpo, who created no shortage of open looks from the perimeter for Forbes throughout the season. It was evident early on that these two had formed some chemistry during the regular season, and that pairing was something that head coach Mike Budenholzer used repeatedly. Ultimately, it worked. The two were a fantastic one-two punch on the offensive end, and that sharpshooting from Forbes will be missed next season.
That is not to discredit how well he played with Middleton and Holiday, as the numbers certainly say he played well with them also. The guard undoubtedly helped bump both of their assist totals up a few ticks by hitting some shots off their pristine passes. Forbes also seemed to be a vibrant presence whenever he got in front of a camera. He kept spirits high and just seemed like someone any team would love to have around in their own locker rooms.
Ultimately, it is welcoming to hear Forbes say good things about his former teammates and that there are no hard feelings following his departure. It is a shame that the team could not have kept him around, but it is understandable. While it was only for one season, it was an eventful one as the guard helped the Bucks win their first title in 50 seasons, earning his first ring in the process. Forbes will receive his championship ring next season when the Bucks square off with the Spurs, and it should be a touching night.
Best of luck, Bryn!
