About Bob Myers

Bob Myers is in his sixth year as General Manager of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. In 2017, the Warriors won the NBA Championship for the second time in three years. He was named the 2014-15 NBA Executive of the Year for constructing a roster that won a franchise-record 67 regular-season games and culminated in winning the 2015 NBA Championship – the team’s first title in 40 years. The Warriors finished with a combined 83 victories in the regular season and postseason, the third-most wins in NBA history. Myers also won a championship as a player, having been a member of the UCLA Bruins’ squad that captured the NCAA title in 1995.

Myers was named General Manager on April 24, 2012. During his first three seasons as GM, Myers assembled teams that earned four straight trips to the NBA Playoffs, marking the first time the Warriors earned four consecutive postseason berths since 1949-52. In fact, prior to the last three seasons, the club had only made the playoffs once in the previous 18 years. Golden State’s 191 regular-season victories over the last three seasons represent the team’s most wins in a three-year stretch in franchise history.

Before joining the Warriors, Myers spent the previous five years at Wasserman Media Group (WMG), one of the largest global sports and entertainment companies in the world. As managing executive, Myers represented a client list of nearly 20 NBA players in their team and endorsement contracts. With a well-earned reputation as one of the top player agents in the NBA, Myers was a recipient of the prestigious “40 under 40” Award in 2011, presented annually by the Sports Business Journal to the 40 most influential sports executives under the age of 40.
