There’s nothing extra inside sports activities than speaking store about basic managers and crew presidents. Clearly, their job is important to the success of the group. It’s simply, nobody actually must know greater than that. Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers has been leaking his contract negotiations to the press since early December, and but no one provides a shit.
I don’t know what number of chits Myers needed to money in to get The Athletic to pen a wholly too lengthy exposé on “Why the Warriors are in danger of losing Bob Myers,” however it needed to be rather a lot contemplating the sports activities insider outlet revealed this puff piece on Myers’ new podcast the identical day.
Myers has a brand new podcast to advertise
The longtime Dubs entrance workplace man mentioned there wasn’t an “epiphany” that prompted this pointless piece of media; it’s “extra checking in with myself.” Dude, if you wish to do this, purchase a journal. Your thoughts isn’t so advanced that we have to hear unscripted conversations with basketball personalities. Half the visitors Myers booked have already got their very own pods. Shit, everyone has a pod.
Myers’ podcast is an Omaha Productions… manufacturing, due to course it’s. The extra ventures Peyton Manning puts out, the extra upset I get that he used my hometown to name sizzling routes and sponsor Pat McAfee. Who’s asking for extra content material from front-office folks? If the algorithm that implies podcasts for you spits out the “Lead By Instance” present, that includes some sports activities exec you’ve by no means heard converse earlier than, you must query your life selections.
Going deep in regards to the MIT Sloan Sports activities Analytics Convention appears like an effective way to prematurely get out of a date that you just don’t need to be on. (If she’s into it, that’s much more of a sign to show and run.)
Dos Equis already has the world’s most interesting man, so please stop submitting your audition tapes, Bob. It’s uncomfortable.
The Splash Bros. revolutionized the NBA, not Golden State’s front office
Myers didn’t orchestrate a trade to move up to get Steph Curry. The greatest shooter of all time fell to Golden State because Minnesota took two point guards who weren’t Curry. Klay Thompson was selected at the tail end of the lottery; it wasn’t like it was some leap to select him at 11. And Myers wasn’t even there when they took Curry, and was just an assistant GM when they took Thompson.
The GM may have had a hand in the Hamptons meet-and-greet between Kevin Durant, Steph, Klay, and Draymond Green, but it wasn’t some brilliant ploy he concocted that landed KD.
The Warriors, like every other NBA team, got a huge opportunity when the cap increased, and had the players, staff, and championship window in place to entice Durant. Do you think the Trail Blazers were trying to overpay Meyers Leonard and Evan Turner rather than sign the Slim Reaper? I mean, come on.
If Steve Kerr or a member of the Big Three was on their way out of the Bay Area, it would merit multiple leaked stories to The Athletic and a podcast or two. However, no one. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Gives a fuck about Bob. Retire, take a new gig, get scammed by a hedge fund manager, I don’t care. The nerve of this guy.
