Earlier this week, a report suggested ESPN's NBA Countdown crew could be overhauled heading into the new NBA season.

According to the report from Sports by Brooks’ Brooks Melchior, Michelle Beadle would not return as the host. Maria Taylor and Rachel Nichols were named as possible replacement's for Beadle, per the report.

Before Game 6 of the NBA Finals between Golden State and Toronto on Thursday night, Beadle sent out a tweet poking fun at the report.

Just a few days later, someone called out Beadle for her opinion on Kawhi Leonard from earlier in the year.

In her response, Beadle made it clear that she will be on NBA Countdown next season. "See y’all next season on Countdown!" she said.

In the hours after Melchior's report emerged, ESPN sent the following statement:

"Our whole NBA team is doing a great job and remains focused on an incredible NBA Finals and tomorrow night's Game 6. We have made no decisions about what we are doing next season. After the season, and as we do with every sport, we will sit down and plan our entire NBA content offering across platforms," the statement read.

Beadle seems to be confident that ESPN won't be making changes to the staff heading into next season.
