Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are as competitive as they come.

Needless to say, the 2019-20 season was not easy or fun for any of them.

And while it's safe to assume they are not exactly disappointed they weren't included in the Orlando bubble, Warriors general manager Bob Myers believes the trio's competitive juices will start flowing as the calendar turns to August and September.

And that goes for everybody on Golden State's roster.

"I think it'll be hard for our guys to watch this thing go," Myers said Friday morning on 95.7 The Game's "Joe, Lo & Dibs" show. "I think it's easier now because the playoffs haven't started, and the Orlando thing is just still getting off the ground.

"But as competitors -- when you're used to being in the playoffs and you're not part of that party -- you feel that. Our guys will feel that. I think they'll watch some of the playoffs and it will motivate them."

Even if the coronavirus pandemic didn't exist -- and the 2020 NBA Playoffs took place like normal from mid-April through mid-June -- watching the postseason from afar was going to gnaw at Steph, Klay and Draymond.

So yes, yours truly completely agrees with Myers' opinion.

The 2020-21 season cannot get here soon enough.
