Once a Spur, always a Spur.

Sean Elliott says it all the time — whenever a player suits up against his former team he wants to show them his best.

Last night the Spurs were in Milwaukee against the Bucks who acquired Bryn Forbes over free agency. This was the players’ first chance to reunite in quite some time.

The gang were all smiles during warmups.

Forbes, an undrafted Michigan Spartan, wowed the Spurs during 2016 Summer League earning him a roster spot. He became the Spurs three-point sharp-shooter and took a role wherever asked by Pop.

During Dejounte Murray’s rehab season of 2018-2019, Forbes started in 81 of the 82 games. He continued to start through much of his final season with the Spurs.

This season, Forbes is hitting 45% from beyond the arc, keeping his status as one of the top ten best downtown assassins in the league.

Luckily for the Spurs, Forbes did not get off too many shots. He 4 of 6 making two threes and scoring ten points in his nineteen minutes of play. That said, the Spurs fell short of taking a win back to San Antonio at the closeout of this road trip.

It is great that Forbes landed on his feet once leaving San Antonio. The Bucks are contenders and are still putting pieces together (P. J. Tucker’s first game with Milwaukee was last night) to capitalize on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s best years.

The Spurs play the Bucks again May 10th in the final week before the season closes.

Best wishes, Bryn.
