The Golden State Warriors have lost way more than just a basketball game.
The end of the season is now also officially the end of the Bob Myers era in the Bay Area, and fans from rival teams couldn’t hide their excitement about this.
BREAKING: Golden State’s Bob Myers – a two-time executive of the year and architect of four NBA championships — is stepping down as the franchise’s president and general manager, he told ESPN on Tuesday. “It’s just time,” Myers said. pic.twitter.com/r9nkqFOETw

The end of the Warriors dynasty one can argue began once they got bounced by the Lakers. However, this for me is the true signal that it has officially begun.

Myers was the architect behind the Warriors’ recent success, the guy who extended Stephen Curry twice, and that surrounded him with the role players and stars he needed to become one of the greatest to ever do it.
Myers managed to keep the championship core together, all while bringing in young talents and trading for All-Stars.
The Warriors will find a tough time replacing him, especially at this point in the offseason, and whoever comes might have to make some tough calls.
The new management will have to decide whether extend or trade both Draymond Green and Klay Thompson, and neither of those players would have any tie to that new person or incentive to take a pay cut or a lesser deal.
There’s also the Jordan Poole and Jonathan Kuminga situation, and putting together a championship contender overnight is no easy task at all.
This could be the beginning of the end of the Warriors’ dynasty or at least the way we know it.
And even though they’ll continue to be championship contenders for as long as Curry is there and is healthy, it will take a lot of hard work to fill Myers’ shoes after all he did for the organization.NEXT: Gilbert Arenas Declares The Warriors' Big 3 As The Best Ever
