Social media has been turned upside down by the latest scandal in the NBA.
Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is facing potential disciplinary action, which includes a “significant suspension” for having a consensual relationship with a woman on the Celtics staff, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Udoka’s job is not currently in jeopardy, but in the court of public opinion, he should be thrown out of the league for cheating on longtime actress Nia Long.
Wojnarowski noted that Udoka could be sidelined for the entire 2022-23 season.
The Celtics hired the 45-year-old Udoka last offseason after he spent 2012-2021 as an assistant with the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets.
In his first year as head coach, Udoka guided the Celtics to their first Eastern Conference title since 2010. Boston fell to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
Along the way was his fiancee cheering him on, and this is how he repayed her.
The Celtics are less than a month away from opening their season, as they start the 2022-23 campaign on Oct. 18 at home against the Philadelphia 76ers.
