If you haven’t heard about the theft of Warriors coach Luke Walton’s car, that’s OK—his father doesn’t even know.

While calling a game between UNLV and Chaminade at the Maui Invitational on ESPN2, the perennially entertaining Bill Walton was asked by play-by-play announcer Jon Sciambi if authorities had ever found his son’s car after it was reportedly stolen in Oakland.

A second or two of silence followed.

“What happened? What are you talking about?” Walton asked.

“I think something happened to his car, I believe,” Sciambi replied.

“To Luke’s car?" Walton said. “I have no idea. I didn’t even know he had a car.”

Walton at least was aware of the fact that Luke had led the Warriors to a 15–0 start in the absence of head coach Steve Kerr.

It doesn’t appear they’re having conversations nightly, but maybe that will change now.

Seriously, though, did they ever find Luke’s car?
