Posted September 25, 2013 on AP on Fox
Golden State general manager Bob Myers appeared relaxed and comfortable as he leaned back in a chair, staring out into a small crowd of reporters and television cameras Wednesday. After a busy offseason in which the team acquired swingman Andre Iguodala, added depth in the backcourt behind Stephen Curry and signed Jermaine O'Neal to help in the post, Myers can't help but smile. The Warriors made it to the Western Conference semifinals a year ago, and the general manager believes his team is poised to make another deep run into the postseason. A healthy Andrew Bogut only adds to the optimism. The 7-foot Australian center was limited to 32 games in 2012 while dealing with soreness in his surgically repaired left ankle and an assortment of other injuries.
