A previous thread on Ime Udoka as he led the Boston Celtics to the finals.

Celtics coach Ime Udoka had an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. It’s been deemed a violation of franchise’s code of conduct.

Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka is facing disciplinary action that is expected to include a significant suspension for his role in a consensual intimate relationship with a woman who is a member of the franchise's staff, sources told ESPN on Wednesday night.

The relationship was considered a violation of the organization's guidelines, and a decision on the length of that suspension is expected to come as soon as Thursday, sources said. While no final decision has been made, internal discussions have included scenarios that would keep Udoka out for the entirety of the 2022-23 season, sources said.

It isn't believed that Udoka's job is in jeopardy, sources said.

Udoka's top assistant coach, Will Hardy, left the team in June to become coach of the Utah Jazz. Another Jazz finalist, Celtics assistant Joe Mazzulla, would likely be in serious consideration for an interim role, sources told ESPN.

Udoka joined the Celtics last summer after spending time with the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets as an assistant coach following his NBA playing career.

He replaced Brad Stevens as coach. Stevens moved upstairs to be Boston's president of basketball operations after his predecessor in that job, Danny Ainge, chose to leave the organization.

In his first season as coach, Udoka oversaw a remarkable turnaround in Boston, one that saw the Celtics go from being under .500 in late January to closing the season with a 28-7 record over their final 35 games. They then authored an impressive run through the Eastern Conference playoffs, advancing to the NBA Finals for the first time in 12 years.

Udoka is the fifth coach in the past 25 years to reach the NBA Finals in his first season as a head coach and the first since Nick Nurse in 2019.

He also, according to ESPN Stats & Information research, became the first rookie coach to win multiple Game 7s in his first postseason. Udoka led Boston to victories over the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals and the Miami Heat in the East finals in seven games before Boston lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games in the NBA Finals.

SOURCE


Born to a Nigerian father from Etinan LGA in Akwa Ibom State and an Illinois mother, the 45-year-old Udoka alongside his sister, Mfon played for the Nigeria's male and female basketball teams respectively.

Udoka started dating American actress, Nia Long in 2010, and both share a son, Kez Sunday Udoka (born Monday November 7, 2011). They got engaged in 2015 despite having no plans to get married.

Long though have a son (born in 2000) from her previous relationship

Udoka is full Igbo name though. The guy dropped the Akwa Ibom name and continued with Igbo name even unto his child/children.

We can see it's not only Africa that shy away from office tangolo.

Akwa-ibomites also answer udoka so rest.
My name is Dati and I'm from Akwa-ibom.
Northerners equally answer the name but spell it as Datti.
We're not related in any way
Neither do they claim relationships
