in Stepping down as general manager of the Warriors Following the 2022-23 NBA season, Bob Myers knew there was one person he would miss just as much, if not more than anyone else.

Steph Curry.

Perennial star Myers led the Warriors to four NBA championships during his tenure as general manager, and above all, he was an upright person, a relationship Myers coveted.

Myers joined former NBA star JJ Redick for the latest episode of his show “The Old Man and the Three” PodcastWhere he discussed why he knew he would miss being around Curry after he decided to step down from his position last summer.

“When I decided to leave, I went to see him for dinner. I cried when I told him I was done,” Myers recalls. “Mostly because I felt like I wasn't going to see him every day. Not because I was 'giving up another chance to win a championship.' None of that, it was like this person wasn't going to be in my life like he was before, and I'm doing this to myself.

“Because he's such a good person, such a good light. It's a light I have to show and be around… It's hard, I miss him. I miss the man. It's a real article. People who think he is like that for the cameras or 'He's not a man Really nice.’ That’s bullshit, he’s a man.”

After Myers officially stepped down at the end of June last year, he signed a contract with ESPN as an NBA analyst, and appeared on a number of network programs, including the NBA Countdown program.

He has since covered a few of Curry and the Warriors' prime-time games and is likely in frequent contact with his former star player, but it's safe to assume he's not near his old friend nearly as much as he'd like to be.
