Another NBA coach has landed themselves in hot water– but it’s not what you think.
“ESPN Sources: Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka is facing possible disciplinary action – including a significant suspension – for an unspecified violation of organizational guidelines. Discussions are ongoing within the Celtics on a final determination,” he tweeted.
The tweet’s ominous approach confused NBA Twitter because while they were aware he was in trouble, they didn’t know what he actually did. Rumors began to fly, but then sights narrowed when another NBA Insider, Shams Charania, revealed that it’s because Udoka had a romantic relationship with someone on the Boston Celtics staff, which breaks the team’s code.
“Celtics coach Ime Udoka had an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff, sources tell The Athletic. It’s been deemed a violation of franchise’s code of conduct,” Charania tweeted.
