Warriors GM Bob Myers has zero tolerance for two things


Warriors GM Bob Myers has zero tolerance for two things

Warriors general manager Bob Myers traveled to the East Coast for the team's current road trip.

With Golden State playing in Brooklyn on Sunday, Myers joined "The Woj Pod" for a conversation with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

One question from Woj: "What do you have no tolerance for? Is there something that you've just said, 'I will not allow that.'" 

Myers' response: "There's a couple things I don't like. I don't like arrogance and I don't like selfish -- people that think they're more than the whole team. One thing I've heard about San Antonio -- that I think is true -- they tell their players, or anybody that works there, that you have to get over yourself. And I think that's great. It's not about one person. And when it ever does become about one person, I think that everyone suffers.

"The team is the most important thing. You're a part of that -- whatever part you play in our team is to serve the team and the goals and to win. And when that happens, you'll get your own individual accolades, or whatever you're hoping to obtain. But when I see someone that tries to step outside of that a little bit and says, 'What about me?' Whether it's deflecting blame or having credit, I just don't like that.

"I just don't subscribe to one person doing anything by themselves. It's not true."

The Warriors' general manager must be referring to arrogance off the court, because Steve Kerr has repeatedly said that Steph Curry is "incredibly arrogant on the floor and humble off the court."

We deserve some clarification Mr. Myers... (kidding, of course).

Report: Giants discussed Panik, top prospects in potential Stanton trade


Report: Giants discussed Panik, top prospects in potential Stanton trade

On Monday morning, some important details emerged.

The Giants discussed Joe Panik and top prospects Tyler Beede and Chris Shaw with the Marlins in a potential trade for Giancarlo Stanton, according to sports radio host Craig Mish.

Last week, San Francisco reportedly made an actual offer for Stanton.

The Giants selected Beede, 24, in the first round (14th overall) of the 2014 draft.

The right-handed pitcher went 6-7 with a 4.79 ERA over 19 starts in Triple-A last season.

The Orange and Black took Shaw, 24, in the first round (31st overall) of the 2015 draft.

In 37 games for Double-A Richmond in 2017, he hit .301 with six home runs and 29 RBI.

He was promoted to Triple-A and hit .289 with 18 home runs and 50 RBI in 88 games.

Shaw recently played in the Arizona Fall League, but only saw action in five games because of a sore shoulder.
