Contra Costa Times, May 28:

Far from a fast-talking slickster who overtakes a room with ego, the Arn Tellem protégé has a reputation for being honest, no-frills and down to earth. Though he spent 17 years in L.A., it was here that he developed the art of the humble grind -- work extra hard, be good to people and focus on the process more than the goal.

The formula has never betrayed him. It carried him from anonymous scrub as a freshman at Monte Vista High-Danville to a senior good enough to share a court with the likes of Brent Barry and Mark Madsen. It helped him develop from a lanky freshman at a UCLA walk-on tryout to a respectable contributor for a powerhouse program as a senior. It saw him rise from a nameless intern under Tellem to a super agent and Tellem's right-hand man.

The CCT caught up with Myers recently. Read the rest of the feature here.

What do you think? Is Myers the right guy for the job? Were you a classmate of Myers?
