Is this the beginning of a dynasty’s end?

The Golden State Warriors didn’t just get bounced from the NBA Playoffs — it came in absolutely shocking fashion with a 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the six-game Western Conference Semifinals.

Well, when a powerhouse franchise usually suffers a catastrophic elimination like this in the middle of controversy (Shaq and Kobe come to mind), it usually signals the end of that particular dynasty, and it looks like that might be going on with the Golden State Warriors as General Manager Bob Myers could be the first domino to fall.

Golden State is reportedly “bracing for the likelihood that Myers could walk away from the franchise,” according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

First joining the Warriors in April 2011, Myers was ultimately made the general manager over a year later. He would go on to have an incredible tenure with Golden State up until this point, winning two NBA Executive of the Year awards and being the architect of four Warriors championships.

However, Myers and Golden State haven’t had any “substantial contract extension talks in months,” according to Charania.


This would be a major loss for the Golden State Warriors. Bob Myers is the same guy who drafted Draymond Green, Harrison Barnes, Kevon Looney and Jordan Poole, traded for Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut and Andrew Wiggins, and signed Kevin Durant, Shaun Livingston, JaVale McGee, Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr. and Brad Wanamaker. It would absolutely have a major impact on the Warriors.

You’ve gotta let Jordan Poole go to soften the blow, right? (RELATED: ‘Idiots And Jacka**es’: Charles Barkley Blasts J.J. Redick, Others For Defending Ja Morant)

Because you can’t lose Draymond Green, which would eventually escalate to Steph Curry or Klay Thompson, or both. The Warriors need to be very calculated moving forward, because their dynasty is on the verge of collapsing.

Very interesting times in San Francisco, indeed.
