Press conference incoming
Can someone explain to me why a GM contract would end on June 30th? Isn't that like having a player who's contracted through April?
Here’s ten bucks. Put your one dollar down to match if you think Miami wins it. I got Jokic Murray and MPJ taking down Butler Spoelstra and a ton of luck so far.
Are there more pieces to fall on the Warriors? It feels like there are but I see no clear way for them to achieve glory as configured and with the same frame of mind they went into the last season. We were not good from the getgo. Coaching shuffle? Player trades? New training staff?
OT is Iguadala retiring?
Meyers might have gotten a little tired babysitting Draymond. The next GM will need to have a strong stomach to handle Draymond, if he's staying around.
It's obviously an emotional time for fans as we see one of the stalwarts of the Dub Dynasty hand in his resignation. Lacob remarked that he couldn't understand why Myers would leave. I think it is pretty obvious to me, he is burned out. It's an incredibly demanding job and with the present financial conditions, an aging and demanding core, real problems to work out in the next few years, he just doesn't want to do this. Nothing fun about this job to him, any longer. He served us well and he is undoubtedly a good guy. His replacement, will have to bear the scrutiny of a very spoiled fan base. If it is Dunleavy, he wasn't a popular player here and there are already boo birds waiting to poop on him. I'm sure there are others who can fill the GM vacancy but I'm sitting this one out, happily.
Haven't seen anything but just curious, what deal do you think Bobgod walked away from? I'm familiar with player contracts. Not GM//Coaches...

Extremely grateful to have had Myers as part of the franchise. No matter what happens in the future, he's a first-ballot Warrior For Life (TM).
This is basically a mic drop for Bob Myers. Dude is going out like a boss having presided over a freaking dynasty that changed basketball. Mad respect for what he did and knowing how to go out while he's still beloved.
Seriously, what more can he do other than appease fans in the closing years of the dynasty?
"I did get yelled at a few times about we didn't sign a big man at the buyout," Bob Myers said with a smile. "It's not as easy as everyone thinks. We do like big guys, contrary to popular belief. Joe, especially, likes size. He'll tell you himself."
in my view, the Warriors good vibes can coast a little on the culture they've built - they still have a new arena with fantastic amenities, another key former player/proven winner/good person in Steve Kerr, and Curry's deep decency. Dunleavy won't screw up in the immediate future, because he's been working with Bob.
Bob Myers (paraphrasing): "This organization will continue to be great. Joe is here, Steph is here."
I am like - oh no. That's it? But Facts! Only Steph is untradable. Although some callers on 95.7 would blow it all up including trading Steph.
You know the movies when the Hero walks calmly out of the building, walks slowly past the viewer, disheveled but sporting a wry smile, the BLAMO!!!!! And the whole building explodes into a giant fireball. That's what this felt like. A player option on an aging veteran who was an essential part of a dynasty and Curry's henchman all these years? A bombastic owner obsessed with winning and holding a 1/2 Billion dollar check after getting beaten down in the second round? A hall of fame coach in the final year of his contract who has decided that he is only responsible for coaching half the team? Phew! This shit about to get real! hahaha
In funleavy we trust!
Well... it's not the total nuclear meltdown over here that I was expecting when I saw the news. That's a plus.
