Bob Myers Rumors

Do you think this stint changed the league-wide perception of you? Marquese Chriss: “Absolutely. I texted Bob [Myers] yesterday and I just told him I appreciated him because pretty much the whole summer, I was on the outside looking in. I had certain opportunities and certain places I could go to try and do the same things I did here, but I felt like coming here was the best opportunity for me and they put me in an opportunity to succeed from day one. I think just being here, it created a different narrative for myself.”
The Warriors owner spoke to Warriors Pregame Live on Saturday about how the injury to Curry affected his outlook on this season, and as you might imagine, he’s not happy with the mounting losses. “It’s been a hard year, but maybe harder for me and [general manager] Bob Myers,” Lacob told Greg Papa. “We’re very competitive, as you suggest, and I always want to win. The thing I hate the most, I have so many people come up to me … everyone comes up and says to me ‘Well, aren’t you glad you’re going to get this great draft choice?’ and ‘It’s a perfect set-up like the Spurs from 20 years ago,’ and that did turn out to be a big thing for them, set them up for a long time. But, you know what? I’d rather win.
“I don’t think you can depend on the draft or a draft choice turning a franchise or an organization around. I would rather win and keep that culture, that culture of winning going. So the thing that concerns me and gets me worried is that somehow we’ll lose that edge or we’ll lose that culture. And with Steph and Klay, hopefully, we won’t. But it does bother me and it’s been a hard adjustment for me. I don’t like going out there and watching us lose.”
