The coronavirus has brought forth a ton of uncertainty in the sports world, especially when it comes to the next time we'll see a live sporting event. The NBA season was heading into the back stretch right before the hiatus, and the playoffs were a little over a month away.

No one knows when the season will resume (if at all), and the biggest question is: where will the season resume: in the regular season, or playoffs? And is it fair to not let the teams in the lottery play again this season?

 

Steve Aschburner, Senior Writer for NBA.com, joined Bill on Monday to talk about the hiatus, and had an interesting idea for when play resumes: have two separate tournaments: the regular playoffs, and a bracket for the lottery teams. The two talked about the hiatus, Giannis Antetokounmpo's case for the MVP, and more:

- If they decide to restart the season, will they have to play without fans?

- How long does he expect the hiatus to be? 

- Is Giannis still the MVP once the season comes back

- Would the empty arena affect the play on the court?
