24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers compiled a team which won an NBA best 67 games this season. The Warriors inked Klay Thompson to an extension and he became an All-Star, Myers draft pick Draymond Green nearly won Defensive Player of the Year and Stephen Curry is on the verge of being named the 2014-15 NBA MVP.
Myers greatest move was hiring Steve Kerr, the man who took this team from good to great.
Myers, in his third season as general manager, presided over a roster that produced the NBA’s best record (67-15) and the most successful regular season in franchise history. The Warriors earned both a Pacific Division title and the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs for the first time since the 1975-76 season.
Myers totaled 82 points and received 13 of 30 first-place votes from a panel of fellow team basketball executives throughout the NBA. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ David Griffin finished second with 69 points (eight first-place votes), and the Atlanta Hawks’ Mike Budenholzer was third with 36 points (four first-place votes). Executives were awarded five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote.
