Mike Greenberg Reportedly Set to Replace Maria Taylor on ESPN’s ‘NBA Countdown’

Maria Taylor has left for greener pastures, so enter Mike Greenberg.

ESPN is reportedly finalizing its roster of on-air talent for “NBA Countdown.” According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Mike Greenberg will replace Maria Taylor as host of “NBA Countdown” and will handle NBA Finals hosting duties. Joining Greenberg will be Stephen A. Smith, Michael Wilbon, Magic Johnson, and Jalen Rose.

Jalen is the only guy to return from last season.

Taylor left ESPN over the summer when she and the network couldn’t come to terms on a contract extension.

Greenberg has been with ESPN since 1996.

This is the first time Greeny has landed a gig hosting one of ESPN’s major pregame shows.
