By  | 

NBA Countdown is back with Paul Pierce, Jay Williams Jalen Rose and Maria Taylor as they take on some of the league’s biggest topics such as the format the NBA should use for the 2020 playoffs when play resumes. Moving to a league-wide 1-16 seed going forward is the popular opinion. The crew also agrees on Giannis Antetokounmpo over LeBron James for MVP (5:55). Jay Williams plays a fantasy game requiring Paul, Maria and Jalen to select any team owner, GM, head coach, franchise player and a city/fanbase which leads to a lot of laughs (11:15). Countdown switches up the topics with a discussion about the unfortunate landscape in social issues throughout the nation having each guest on the show speak on their personal viewpoints
