San Quentin State Prison is rarely open to the public. But for the past six years, Golden State Warriors General Manager Bob Myers has taken a group of his staff behind bars of the notorious prison to play basketball against an all-star team of inmates.

Myers says you can find strength in numbers in your family.

"I think I learned hard work, think I learned humility, um, I learned teamwork. I learned a lot of those things from my mom and dad," Myers said.

And of course, everyone got a bob Myer's day t-shirt courtesy the Golden State Warriors.

Bob Myers recently showed off the team's Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy at San Quentin.
