Photo credit KGO ABC 7 San Francisco: Right now KGO 7 sports anchor Mike Shumann isn’t ready to be asked anything after being videoed taking Warriors director of security Ralph Walker’s jacket before game four on Sunday in San Antonio
On the Golden State Warriors podcast with David:
KGO ABC 7’s sports anchor Mike Schumann has been pulled from covering the Golden State Warriors playoff assignment. During a practice session, a video showed Schumann taking a jacket from a seat before Sunday’s Game 4 in San Antonio. Schumann apparently picked the wrong person to steal from Ralph Walker, who is Stephen Curry’s personal security guard and also is the team’s security director knows a few things about finding stolen property.
Walker, who was missing the jacket, requested to see who might have taken the jacket from at the AT&T Center Arena and a security video showed a man with a red jacket on walking up to the seat taking the jacket and walking away. Identified as Schumann, who has been a Channel 7 anchor since he retired from the San Francisco 49ers in the 80s. Channel 7 said they take this matter seriously and have pulled Schumann from the assignment. The statement basically said the station is embarrassed by the incident.
The Warriors who couldn’t get it done in Game 4 on Sunday will take a look at what the difference was from the first three games and the Game 4 loss. The Warriors take on the Spurs for Game 5 at Oracle Arena tonight to try and close out this first round of the playoffs.
Head coach Steve Kerr said that Stephen Curry won’t be available until this series is over. The ankle is under treatment and doctor’s care. The Warriors want to make sure that Curry is fully prepared enough to compete at the highest level on the fragile ankle that’s given Curry past problems.
