Sources: Beadle, pierce, billups out at espn’s “countdown”
 

 
Multiple sources also tell SportsbyBrooks.com that NBA Countdown analysts Chauncey Billups and Paul Pierce will not return to the show as full-time analysts but that Jalen Rose will remain on the show in his current capacity.

SportsbyBrooks.com has also learned from multiple sources that ESPN on-air talents Maria Taylor and Rachel Nichols are under consideration to take over as host of Countdown.

Nichols is currently the host of ESPN’s weekday NBA show The Jump.

ESPN's NBA studio show is always trash, especially compared to TNT.

Everything feels forced with it. The last time the show was good was when it was Stephen A Smith, Bill Walton and Tim Legler like 15 or so years ago.

It's been that goddamn long lol

I got love for all of the panelists, all have achievements and are accomplished athletes.

Jalen is clearly the most experienced and polished. Chauncey acts professional and is clear and concise with his analysis, I feel like he is stuck having to awkwardly laugh at some of the corny rhetoric amongst the crew.

PP is cool but he’s not ready or is simply not getting it done in a role that grand, the collective personality of the cast is overall dry with a lot of failed attempts at barbershop jokes. To the point that it takes away from their serious points.

If true they tried, I would keep grooming Chauncey. Jalen took years to get comfortable and has it figured out. Beadle will be tight if she’s replaced by Nichols.

Billups may have a job offer from a team, Pierce can always go to NBATV or maybe he might be going to TNT, Jalen good with ESPN...Michelle...Idc where she goes..with her Kawhi hate

Only agree with your PP thoughts. He was starting to get too reckless up there, to the point where I felt like he was told to act like an idiot on purpose. Otherwise I don’t know who would’ve signed off on his hiring or continue to let his behavior fly.

She left Sportsnation to go to Get Up* then left to focus on this.

She literally has gone thru 3 jobs in 2 years.

Pierce proved himself to be a self-aggrandizing moron during his short stint. He better off leaving instead of continuing to make a fool of himself and have others clowning him on TV

Rachel,D wade, t Mac, and Jalen would be great.
Rachel or Doris should do all the basketball shoes. They’re the two best women women on the channel.
