A busy and productive offseason behind him, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers can finally look at his reconstructed roster and say, ''I don't think we're bad on paper.''
How durable that paper will be is still to be determined.
For all the success Myers has seemingly had in the five months since the former sports agent was promoted from assistant general manager, Golden State's season still rests largely on the surgically repaired ankles of center Andrew Bogut and point guard Stephen Curry. It's a scary, however promising, prospect Myers admits he thinks about often.
He has tried to remind himself there is only so much he can do, often reading a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson that starts: ''Don't waste your life in doubts and fears.''
