The Golden State Warriors lost way more than a very good player this offseason.
Trading Jordan Poole was the first move in the post-Bob Myers era, and new GM Mike Dunleavy Jr. will be judged by that decision for years to come.
Myers had been the architect behind the Warriors’ recent success, and one of the main ones responsible for taking the team to a whole new tier in terms of value.
Most of the big trades and extensions happened under Myers’ watch, which is why some predicted his departure could be the actual beginning of the end of their dynasty.
Myers walked away from the team as his contract expired this offseason, leaving his protegé and former NBA player Dunleavy as his replacement.
And while it always seemed like he was going to take a hiatus and we wouldn’t hear from him for a while, it seems like he’s ready to get back to work.
This time, however, he could be getting things done as an analyst for ESPN’s NBA Countdown, according to a report by the New York Post (via NBA Central).

Myers could’ve gauged plenty of league-wide interest as an executive.
Multiple teams have unsuccessfully tried to replicate the Warriors’ formula, and he has some strong ties and relations with many players around the league.
Even so, it’s evident that that kind of job could wear anyone out, regardless of the success and how much money one could make, and it’ll be interesting to hear his insight and inside-scoop about everything that goes down in the league.NEXT: Steph Curry Names 1 Of His Former Campers Thriving In The NBA
