SAN FRANCISCO — To the best of his abilities, Bob Myers rattled off a long list of people to thank Tuesday in the opening monologue of what was his farewell press conference in front of Bay Area media members.

As Myers steps down from being the Warriors’ general manager and president of basketball operations (one season as assistant GM, 11 as lead GM and the last seven seasons also being president of basketball ops), he listed players from the present and the past.

Kevon Looney has entered that stratosphere, and along with him, Myers also mentioned Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole.

Stars, role players, veterans and younger players with plenty of years to go all left a lasting impact on Myers, and vice versa. The same goes with a handful of coaches.

His friendship and bond with Steve Kerr that extends far past an arena or basketball court is well documented, and he wasn’t left out. Assistants Mike Brown, Luke Walton and Alvin Gentry also all were thanked. So was the man who led the Warriors on the court, hired two months after new owner Joe Lacob brought Myers aboard as assistant GM.

“Mark Jackson was my first coach, and Mark was so right for the time,” Myers said. “He was what we needed. We needed confidence. Our players needed it. Our organization needed it and he brought it, and only the way that he could.

“And got us to start believing in ourselves, and that’s an important thing. He brought that confidence and leadership.”

The beginning of Jackson’s coaching career wasn’t smooth roads from the start. Early bumps came in bunches. The Warriors finished 23-43 in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, though a good deal of what was behind their lowly record were reasons outside of Jackson’s doing.

Curry? His nagging ankle issues held him back to only 26 games, a problem…
