"The greatest joy for me is to reward this fan-base," Myers, a former agent and native of nearby Alamo who is in his second season at the front-office helm, told USA TODAY Sports afterward. "They deserve to see a successful product. They deserve to see playoff games. To get to the playoffs was meaningful personally, because this is the team I grew up rooting for and wanted to see get back on track." But that finish. That wild, helter-skelter finish.

General manager Bob Myers said he had cordial talks with Jackson daily about who might fit and reiterated that it didn’t make any sense to bring in a player to sit on the bench. There was some talk about guards Maalik Wayns and Chris Douglas-Roberts, forwards Josh Childress, Dominic McGuire and Chris Wright and center Mickell Gladness.

With him, the thinking was from ownership on down that if you were going to bet on a player this was the type of player you bet on because of his character and because of his talent." Yahoo! Sports

Warriors general manager Bob Myers, in the wake of the controversy surrounding Andrew Bogut's left ankle surgery, fell on the sword. "I know it's being perceived that it was mishandled and not handled appropriately," Myers said during the pregame show on "Chronicle Live." "Ultimately, that rests on my shoulders. ...
