Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton has Golden State in the driver's seat -- but his own set of wheels is nowhere to be found. Turns out Walton's car was reported as stolen last week.
According to NBC Bay Area:
"One of the cars stolen during an Oakland Hills crime spree belongs to Golden State Warriors coach Luke Walton, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said late Monday.
"Walton's Mercedes-Benz was stolen Tuesday by two suspects, who police believe are also responsible for a violent attack on a 75-year-old woman outside her home on Thursday. The suspects also took the woman's car during the attack, according to police."
Just three short seasons ago, Walton was toiling away on a 24-win Cleveland Cavaliers team. After broadcasting in 2013-14, Walton joined Steve Kerr's staff for the 67-win world champion Warriors in 2014-15. With Kerr missing the start of the regular season to recover from back surgery, Walton was tabbed as the team's interim coach. He is 15-0 so far, though all of his wins count under Kerr's record, since he technically remains the head coach.
Pending a lift to Oakland's Oracle Arena, Walton will attempt to coach the Warriors to history Tuesday night. Golden State hosts Walton's former team from 2003-2012, the Los Angeles Lakers. Walton won championships with the Lakers in 2008-09 and 2009-10, making him and his dad, Bill, the only NBA father-son duo to ever win multiple championships.
Is Kobe ready to play Luke?

You know who's not average? Stephen Curry, who will attempt to continue his own jaw-dropping start to the season.
How's this for a fun stat: Walton has lost more luxury cars than NBA games this season.
