2. Bryn Forbes

We all know why Bryn Forbes is back in San Antonio -- he can shoot the heck out of the ball. It's hard to find a more pure stroke than his other than the cream of the crop like Joe Harris or Stephen Curry. While he doesn't offer that much on the other end of the court, Forbes is capable of dropping 20 on your head before you know it.

When Bryn is on, it widens the court and breaks it open for drives from slashing guys like Lonnie Walker and Keldon. The spacing is just completely different when you have a threat as huge as the one he poses when he's feeling it -- and he's been feeling it often lately.

Forbes' career mark of 41.2% is the best on the team, as is his 37.7% playoff mark, which included a championship run with Milwaukee last season. Add to that he makes 45% of his shots from 10 feet out to the 3-point line, and it's a no-brainer he should shoot from just about anywhere he wants when he's open.

Given his 6-2, 205-pound frame, Forbes doesn't have much of a drive-and-finish game, which is one limitation to his offense. But if he can move well without the ball and find his spots, he needs to let it fly often.
