On top of the start of the regular season, Wednesday marks one of the best days of the year for Spurs fans.

The team's H-E-B commercials are almost here!

Fans will find a lot to love about this year's TV spots, as the set of commercials includes Tony Parker's induction to the "Legends" and Bryn Forbes' addition to the star-studded lineup.

This year marks the 15th year that Spurs players have put their acting skills to the test. The collaboration began in 2004, when Tim Duncan made a solo appearance.

Two commercials are expected to air during Wednesday night's season opener: a "Cooking with the Spurs Podcast" and "Seafood Pirates," reports. The former spot will star DeMar DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Patty Mills and the Coyote, who will be a "guest chef." In the latter, young Spur Bryn Forbes will make his commercial debut, joined by LaMarcus Aldridge, DeRozan, Gay and Mills. Forbes and Gay will even do their best pirate impressions.

"None of them are shy," H-E-B's vice president of marketing and advertising Cory Basso told "It's fun for them to be a part of the commercials because they get to share them with their fans."

Like in years past, Spurs fans have been able to enjoy behind-the-scenes look at the commercials thanks to social media teases from the official Spurs accounts and the stars themselves.
