Bob Myers: “Apart from Stephen Curry, no one is playing at their best”

11 games for 4 wins and 7 losses, rotations still uncertain for a Steve Kerr who is looking for solutions, and a completely desperate defense (116.1 points conceded out of 100 possessions, in 27th place out of 30). This is how to quickly summarize the Warriors’ chaotic start to the season, far from their level of last season after three weeks in the new exercise.

In short, everything is complicated at the moment for the Warriors, who are going through serious turbulence, which began even before the start of the season, with the Jordan Poole – Draymond Green affair.

The state of emergency was even declared among the defending champions, beaten five times in a row outside before winning in extremis at home against the Kings, on the night of Monday to Tuesday, thanks to the exploits by Stephen Curry.

Except [Stephen] Curry, I don’t think anyone is playing at their best. summed up Bob Myers, questioned at length by The Athletic on the current state of affairs for his club, after the narrow success against the Kings. ” But all the others have a much higher ceiling than what they have shown so far. We’re looking to regain momentum, and last night’s win was a good start he adds. ” But yeah, it’s definitely a tough start for us. »

Then the GM of the Warriors to ask for patience, for these title holders who stagger.

Steve [Kerr] will come out of it, he will find the solution. The most important thing is to have a broad vision. I know a lot of fans don’t want to hear that. But in this case, it’s our reality he continues. ” Because right now, we are not the best version of ourselves. We are an average team. The good news is that we can do much better. I am even rather convinced that we will do better. »

The awakening of the bench, the current priority

And the first axis of progression of the Warriors is certainly the contribution of the bench. First, Jordan Poole, James Wiseman and JaMychal Green, who have been struggling since the start of the season, and even downright benched at times by Steve Kerr against the Kings, in favor of the “two-way contacts” Ty Jerome and Anthony Lamb.

It’s about who’s most effective at the moment, I think. I’m not more worried than that. I repeat, it’s a long season, we have to be patient. On the other hand, it will be interesting to observe where we are at this level, at the end of the season. And in my opinion, it will be very different from what we saw in the last game says Bob Myers.

Regarding James (Wiseman), I would say that he simply has to play. And Steve is still looking for the best way to put him in the best position to succeed. He showed good things in preseason and at the start of the season, then he stalled lately. But we are not worried yet, because he just has to play. We still believe in him “He then details, before discussing the Jordan Poole case, extended at a high price but clearly underperforming until now.

He comes off the bench. Last year, he was a starter until the return of Klay [Thompson]. Any player will tell you that it’s easier to start than to come off the bench. […] But he will also have to find his cruising speed, adapt to what is expected of him with the group of substitutes. […] But we are not worried, because we know what he is capable of. We have already seen him at work, during the regular season and then the playoffs. »

You don’t change a winning team anytime soon

But overall, even if the product is not satisfactory for the time being, Bob Myers remains confident. After four titles in eight seasons, the club’s sporting boss knows that sometimes it is enough to let the storm pass.

I have been doing this job for a long time, and I know that it is not very constructive to draw conclusions, positive or negative, after 11 games. Last year we were 18-2 and everyone was saying we were going to win the title. Then we lost five or six games in a row, we dealt with a few injuries, and everyone was saying we wouldn’t make it past the first round. “he relativizes as well.

No changes planned in the workforce, therefore, for the time being.

We can take stock once we have played 40 games. But there, it is still early to make important decisions. […] We are not going to overreact despite this clearly not ideal start. We will play despite the turbulence. But make no mistake: we consider ourselves ‘contenders’. »
