Bob Myers Rumors
“Clearly a 3-pointer or a layup is better analytically,” Myers said. “But not if there’s a hand in your face or you’re falling out of bounds or you’re going against a 7-foot guy at the rim.” Which makes the mid-range shot the flip phone of the NBA. It’s out of style, a relic from another era, and it’s undeniable there are better options available. But it can still get the job done. “The idea is to score more points than the other team,” said Golden State assistant coach Ron Adams. “You’re going to do that in a variety of ways.”
“He’s certainly shown his worth here,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said, via Medina. “It’s pretty undeniable how important he is. There’s not a lot of guys that can do what he does and be as humble and selfless as he is.”
Warriors general manager Bob Myers addressed the team at shootaround prior to film study. It’s something he does every dozen games or so, but the topic is usually about travel itineraries and team events. Rarely is it a serious issue or with a serious tone. But his objective on this day was to share his concern about the team’s growing number of technical fouls. This season, collectively, the defending champions have demonstrated a lack of self-restraint.
This issue extends beyond just the players. Kerr occasionally drops profanity-laced tirades at the officials too. Early in the third quarter of Tuesday’s loss to Oklahoma City, Kerr picked up his fourth technical of the season. He had five in total last season.
“It’s not a good look,” Kerr said in explaining what Myers’ message was. “We need to look more professional, to act more professional, and to be more poised, and to represent our team in a better light. I don’t think we’ve been doing a good job of that lately.”
