Yes, you read that right — San Antonio Spurs sophomore Lonnie Walker stole a motorized scooter from Rudy Gay at the Yacht Club Resort on Friday.

For as much as the San Antonio Spurs are locked-in as they prepare to resume their season at Walt Disney World, they also need to find ways to entertain themselves. Today, fan-favorite Lonnie Walker IV entertained himself with some thievery.

Let’s first set the stage — veteran forward Rudy Gay posted on his Instagram story that Aussie point guard Patty Mills bought him a motorized scooter. Not only does that make it easier to get around the massive Yacht Club Resort where they’ll reside for the next month, but it’s a source of entertainment. He shared it with the world by doing his best Patty impression with a thick Australian accent.

It didn’t take long for Walker to arrive on the scene and snatch Rudy’s ride. The 21-year-old took to Instagram live for our viewing pleasure. The entire interaction was recorded as Gay longingly watched from afar. The up-and-comer had the audacity to continuously drive past Rudy, gloating about the theft and giggling from his joyride.

Lonnie kept it real in the video clip. He warned Rudy and his hundreds of viewers that when you don’t lock up your bikes or scooters, they get stolen! I can’t blame him either, those motorized scooters are a ton of fun and make it very easy to get around.

Speaking from experience, they’re dangerous too. I took a Bird scooter to visit my girlfriend half of a mile away from me, hit a bump and absolutely wiped out. I had to get an X-ray, a bunch of bandages and still have a mark from the injury. Being a sportswriter, I’m nearly the exact opposite of a professional athlete, so the impact of my injury is nothing compared to what it would mean for Lonnie or Rudy to fall off of one of those. Let’s hope they’re safer than I was…

Anyway, it’s clear how much fun these guys have together. The chemistry is there off the court, so let’s hope it translates on the court when they resume playing in the next few weeks.

These are two players who are wildly entertaining in-game, so no one should be surprised that they’re just as magnetic away from the game.
