The Golden State Warriors playoff run ended quickly after they were bounced out by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round.
Many speculate some big changes are on the way for this franchise as they hope to form a championship roster sooner, rather than later.
Well, the first move has officially been made after Bob Myers, the Warriors’ general manager, made a big announcement.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Myers is officially stepping down as the Warriors’ GM. Woj reports that Bob Myers claims that, “it’s just time,” when he was asked about his decision.

This may have been a move Warriors fans saw coming all along. The organization is facing a possible rebuild right now and Myers could be choosing to leave before things get ugly.
Kinda expected so I wonder who on the roster is also elsewhere next season

Despite that, opposing fans seemed to be a bit shocked by this news. Plenty of people believe the Warriors dynasty may finally come to an end with Bob Myers stepping down as GM.
Let’s all have a moment of silence for the warriors dynasty

Was this a smart move for Bob Myers?
Getting out before the thing implodes. Smart

Some basketball fans believe Myers saved himself from an awkward situation with Draymond Green.
Next GM has worst job ever. Having to tell Draymond he’s traded or cut it’s going to suck 😂

Golden State officially enters a new era. It’ll be interesting to see what transpires in the coming months.
The Warriors must first hire a new GM. After that, there is no telling what comes next. Perhaps it’s time the roster enters a full rebuild. But it’s a bit of a shame Bob Myers won’t be there to help.
