Al Horford’s sister is not happy with having her name being slandered with what is going on with Ime Udoka.
The Boston Celtics head coach has been suspended for an entire season for having an intimate relationship with a female staffer within the organization. Fans online began posting the women staffers on the team, until one account decided to troll and state it was Anna Horford.
The troll account said, “Ime Udoka has been suspended after sleeping with Al Horford’s sister.”
Anna Horford saw the tweet and fired back at the people making jokes about the serious situation.
“I get that this is a troll account, but I’ve been spammed with these messages all day. It’s not funny. I get that you just want clicks, but you’re fucking with real people who have nothing to do with this. It’s really not okay.”
Reports of Udoka potentially being suspended for the season over it broke between late Wednesday and early Thursday. Multiple reports later indicated that Udoka was alleged to have had a consensual, intimate relationship with a female staff member and it “was considered to be a violation of the organization’s guidelines.”
The 45-year-old has been with actress Nia Long since 2010.
In his first season with the Celtics in 2021-2022, Udoka led Boston to the Eastern Conference Finals, where his team defeated the Miami Heat to take a trip to the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors would eventually win.
