I interviewed new Warriors general manager Bob Myers this afternoon. I found him delightful. Here is the opening to my column about him:


Last Saturday, Bob Myers went to San Quentin to play hoops with the inmates. When word spread he’s the general manager of the Warriors, the inmates started telling him how to fix the team. One guy yelled, “What’s the plan?”

“The plan is to stop losing,” Myers shot back.

The inmates, a hard crowd, liked that. If a guy goes over big in San Quentin, he has a chance of impressing the NBA.
