Busy Warriors general manager Bob Myers had a brief moment to celebrate the team’s championship with a vacation to Hawaii with his family after the draft and free agency were done.
Out there, he encountered none other than LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers star the Warriors had just gotten the best of in the NBA Finals, Myers told Bleacher Report Radio on Monday.
“I like to play basketball, and there was a halfcourt basketball hoop where we were, and my wife said, ‘Why don’t you go play basketball and find somebody to play basketball with?’” Myers said. “And I said there’s no one here that I’m going to be able to play basketball with. It’s people relaxing or golfing. And so I went and kind of shot around by myself and then I walked back to the pool area and my wife she looks at me and goes, ‘Is that LeBron James in the pool?’ And I said, ‘No, LeBron James…’ I looked over as I was midsentence, and it was LeBron James in the pool.
Myers, the reigning Executive of the Year, added with a laugh, “I said to my wife, I don’t think I’m going to ask LeBron to play basketball with me.”
James, of course, had fun on his Hawaiian vacation with family, too, and had no problem speaking with Myers.
“He was very nice,” Myers said. “He’s a very thoughtful guy.
“We just talked about the Finals…We just talked about our teams, and it was great.”
