In this episode of The NBA Podcast, Morten Jensen (@msjnba) and Bryan Toporek (@btoporek) discuss Kenny Atkinson’s departure from the Brooklyn Nets, whether LeBron James has overtaken Giannis Antetokounmpo in the MVP race as well as the NBA’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Why did Atkinson and the Nets mutually decide to part ways? Who should the Nets hire as their next head coach? Which teams should be interested in Atkinson?

Has LeBron already overtaken Giannis as the MVP favorite? Can he? And should the NBA close arenas in response to the coronavirus outbreak?
