Major changes could be in store for the Golden State Warriors this summer. At the end of the season, general manager Bob Myers’ contract is set to expire. Myers has served that role for Golden State since the 2012-13 season, and is considered by many to be the architect behind their championship core.
NBC Sports Bay Area’s Monte Poole explained that star guard Stephen Curry, as well as some of his teammates, are a bit anxious about the potential shift in power.
Bob Myers, general manager since 2012-13 – the first of eight trips to the playoffs in 10 seasons – is in the final months of his contract and his uncertain future generates a measure of anxiety among those who value his presence, Poole wrote in a March 13 article. “Count Stephen Curry among them – and he’s not alone.
Curry recently explained that he values the trust he and his teammates are able to have in Myers.
“We were all young at one point when we were trying to figure it out,” Curry said on recent NBC Sports Bay Area “Dubs Talk” podcast. “One of his special abilities is to connect with you where you are. Be truthful and honest and authentic about how difficult the NBA is in the sense of decisions that are made and the business side of it. But also, he has a personal touch that you trust.”
The four-time NBA champion then expressed his gratitude for the excellent relationship he and others have been able to build with the general manager.
“I don’t ever take that for granted,” Curry said. “The fact that I can have a difficult conversation with him. I can pick up the phone and let him know how I’m feeling. He’ll give it to me straight around where we are as a team or where I am individually.”
