Ime Udoka ‘Fumbled’ Nia Long
Or so the twitterers are claiming. The Boston Celtics coach recently got called out for having a “consensual, intimate” relationship with someone he works closely with. The news was reported by ESPN anchor Adrian Wojnarowski that the Nigerian-born coach’s “relationship was considered a violation of the organization’s guidelines,” meaning his job is in jeopardy.
Wojnarowski is referncing a tweet from Shams Charania, the senior lead NBA inside for The Athletic and Stadium who tweeted; 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.”

Not to mention, Udoka has been engaged to actress, Long for some time now. They initially met in 2010 and in 2015, she gave birth to their son. At one point, fans believe that the couple was broken up but this changed when she wished him a happy birthday online.
Ime Udoka Is About To Be Benched
The coach is about to feel like a player if the league goes through with the possible suspension they are discussing.
According to ESPN, “a decision on the length of that suspension is expected to come as soon as Thursday. 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.”
They are also allegedly discussing his job after the suspension is up. Keep in mind Udoka only started this job in 2021-22 season so, if they have to move on from him, the are probably assuming it won’t be that big of a deal.
What We Know About The Affair So Far
To be honest, the situation is mostly under wraps the only thing we know is that it was consensual but inappropriate, and the league is not going to stand for it. No information has been released about the other party involved and Udoka himself hasn’t released a statement but Twitter is in an uproar with the news.
Nia Long Is Trending
The actress is trending under various hashtags the most prominent one being #FumblingNiaLong this one is pointed directly to Udoka who fans see as fumbling an amazing thing with a baddie like Nia Long.
“#FumblingNiaLong is trending,” point out a follower along with the dying of laughter emoji. “Cheating on Nia Long is crazy,” one fan said obviously. “Ime Udoka fumbled Nia Long and the NBA Finals. I’ve never seen an L worse than this one,” oof, that one has to sting.
“Cheating on Nia Long is not something a sane man does. Ime Udoka must’ve gotten CTE from coaching Al Horford,” believed a follower.
Even celebrities are chiming in on the outrageous news Nina Parker tweeted, “Cheating on Nia Long? End of days has to be upon us. Because ain’t NO WAY.”
