Nia Long, long-time partner of Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka, slammed the Celtics organization for how they handled her fiancé’s suspension.
In September, after a lengthy investigation of the actions of their head coach, Ime Udoka, the Celtics decided to suspend him for the entire season, thus until the summer of 2023. The reason? He had violated numerous team policies, including having an inappropriate consensual relationship with a female staffer. The Celtics were tipped to that possibility over the summer and decided to hire an independent law firm to investigate it.
