This Story Is Messier Than Ever
Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka has been suspended from the team for the entire 2022-2023 season for Conduct Detrimental to the Team.
Now what we thought was a Small cup of Cheating turns out to be a Xtra Large Cup of Cheating with 6 bags of sugar and we're here to break it down for you like a coach.
We now know that the Nigerian Basketball Coach was notified in July by Boston that the Celtics had caught him in a entanglement with a staffer. Ime and the mistress portrayed the relationship as consensual but the mistress would later reveal that Ime made Unwanted Comments towards her which launched the investigation according to Marca.
Now it's bad enough Ime is cheating but it is now confirmed by Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight that the mistress is Married and was caught due to her husband hearing have a convo on their doorbell camera.
Kevin reports that the mistress also assisted Nia Long in moving to Boston and that Nia didn't learn about the scandal until it was made public by the franchise.
Not only was the coach smashing shamrocks in Boston, but he completely embarrassed his family.
If you recall the two got engaged in 2015 and Long has supported Ime on his journey to becoming the Celtics coach.
Now the Twitter Private Detectives had been busy digging and they had a identified Boston Celtics Vice President of Player and Organizational Development Allison Feaster but we now have official word from Senior NBA Writer Marc J Spears that Mrs Feaster had nothing to do with this scandal
Udoka released a statement
"I want to apologize players, fans, the entire Celtics organization and my family for letting them down. I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation and I accept the team's decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I have no further comment"
Nia has released a state to TMZ through her rep Shannon Barr
"The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and the community during this difficult time means so much to me. I ask that my privacy be respected as I process the recent events. Above all, I am a mother and will continue to focus on my children."
Boston Celtics Co Owner Wyc Grousbeck and President of Operations Brad Stevens spoke on how this controversy has affected the women staffers.
The Celtics are not releasing the name of the employee, but TMZ confirmed Nia has been told who she is.
