Just like his mentor and former boss Steve Kerr, Luke Walton possesses a sharp sense of humor. That wit was on display during an appearance on Bleacher Report's “The Full 48 Podcast” when Howard Beck asked the young head coach about the Los Angeles Lakers protracted struggles.

"I joke a lot. I said ‘if there's a time to be rebuilding, this is the time to do it,’” Walton said. “The [Golden State] Warriors don't look like they're going anywhere for a while. They're pretty darn good right now.”

Even though he's now piloting the Dubs' Pacific Division neighbors, Walton remains as close as ever to Kerr. The former Warriors assiant and interim head coach has made multiple postseason appearances at Oracle Arena and watched Game 1 of the NBA Finals with Kerr in the coaches' locker room.
