I don't figure much in this column. The Warriors made general manager Bob Myers available to the media for an hour Thursday morning. Myers, who often begins an answer with gosh or gee, answered all questions about the state of the team. I share the Q&A with you:

Q: How do you feel about what the Warriors did in the offseason?

A: Hmm. I keep getting asked that. I finally settled on a response which is, ask me at the end of the season. I hope it all fits together. We certainly improved the roster but how it all works is to be determined.

Q: Stephen Curry said this is the most talented Warriors roster he's been part of. Do you agree?

A: Geez. This team is unique for its depth. The players that usually determine your success level are the ones that are out there starting. Come playoff time, you want to have your top five, six, seven guys out there playing the big chunk of minutes.

Note: I take that to mean Myers doesn't know how talented his key players are. That is to be determined.

Q: What does Myers want from this team?

A: I want us to be known as a team that competes night in and night out. I want to look at a group of players that doesn't give an inch. Those are the guys that should play.

Q: What is the status of Andrew Bogut?

A: He's on a schedule. He has not begun five-on-five contact, but that is something we expect to happen in October. He has not experienced any setbacks. If anything we're being cautious and going slow. We are encouraged that things are progressing very well. We're hoping he will be in some preseason games.
