Before the Lakers fired Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss on Tuesday, the franchise had already moved away from trying to pursue the Golden State Warriors’ Bob Myers, the franchise’s original top target for general manager, league sources told The Vertical. After Myers signed a recent contract extension, it became clear to Lakers brass that it would be unable to lure Myers, league sources said.
Though not entirely surprising, that is essentially what Warriors director of player personnel Larry Harris told KNBR on Monday. “We’ll take phone calls. We’re not going to initiate any,” Harris said. “But we’ll take phone calls if teams are interested, if they need us maybe in a three-way deal or they see something that can help us. We’re certainly not generating calls. And not because we’re being arrogant or anything.”
Other than adding Briante Weber to a 10-day contract — and, reportedly, another — the Warriors should stand pat. “As we look at our roster moving forward, I think where we’re going to grow is within our own team,” Harris said.
“He’s gained more compassion, more empathy,” said Kerr, whose father, Dr. Malcolm Kerr, was assassinated by political extremists in Beirut in 1984. “I found the same thing when I went through my dad’s death. It suddenly means a lot more when you read about somebody else’s tragedy.” Today, 13 months after his brother-in-law’s death, Myers and his team are under the kind of external scrutiny that comes only with championship-or-bust expectations. Still, it is Dinsmore whom he thinks of first when he wakes each morning. On the 12th of every month, to honor his memory, Bob, Kristen and their daughters release balloons with handwritten notes to Dinsmore “in heaven” in front of the Palace of Fine Arts.
Scott and Chelsea had been on the sixth day of an eight-day climb, about 2,000 feet from Kilimanjaro’s summit, when they heard a shout from a climber above. A black boulder — roughly the size of a large suitcase — was racing toward them as smaller rocks rained down on either side. Chelsea dove to her right. When she glanced back, Scott, who had been walking just behind her, was on the ground, severely injured. She tried to resuscitate him. It was too late. “This was a very bizarre and freak thing,” said Chelsea, who stays with the Myerses whenever she’s not traveling the world in her work for Live Your Legend. “No one else on the mountain was hurt. Scott was the only one.”
