“Sometimes, we look back and we feel entitled, like this was our destiny,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. “I think he has a view of appreciation that says, ‘Somebody helped me. There was a court I went to, there was a coach that taught me. My mom. People in my life.’ He credits them. He doesn’t feel like he did it all by himself. I think his hope is with what he is doing off the court … is to show them someone in his position cares.”

After three consecutive blowout losses to start the season, the Phoenix Suns fired coach Earl Watson on Sunday, league sources told ESPN. Associate head coach Jay Triano is expected to become the interim head coach, league sources said.
General manager Ryan McDonough and Watson had often been at odds in their short partnership together, league sources told ESPN. Owner Robert Sarver was a significant part of the decision to replace Watson so early into the season, league sources said.
