The Warriors felt the most agonizing of losses just one week ago.
A loss, in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, on their home court.
After a historic 73-win season, they walked off the court last Sunday without the ultimate prize: The Larry O'Brien trophy.
The players and coaches will likely never forget the pain they felt watching the Cavs celebrate an NBA title on their court.
But for GM Bob Myers, he expects his players to use the NBA Finals loss to their advantage.
"I don't look back on the season and say I would have changed anything personally. I don't think anybody does. I just think at the very, very end, we got beat. And that happens. It will probably make us a stronger team," Myers said on KNBR 680 on Friday.
Myers believes losing in such a fashion can be a learning experience for his young core.
"You can react two ways: You're either going to get better or you're going to get worse. And I think our players, base on what I heard in the exit interviews, have the right attitude, have the right maturity to grow from this. And we'll all learn from this," Myers said.
How the Warriors fare next season should show what they learned from their historic collapse at the hands of LeBron James and the Cavs.
