Nia Long’s Celebration To Ime Udoka, Celtics Making NBA Finals (Video)

Nia Long’s Celebration To Ime Udoka, Celtics Making NBA Finals (Video)

Ime Udoka has had himself quite the first year as a Boston Celtics head coach.

After getting off to an extremely slow start to the season, one that had folks calling for the entire team to be broken up, he somehow circled the wagons and put together a historic second-half resurgence.

On Sunday, Udoka’s efforts culminated in his squad defeating the Miami Heat in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals match-up and earning a spot in the NBA Finals.

One person who was extremely thrilled about Udoka’s accomplishment? His wife, beloved actress Nia Long.

Long’s reaction to her husband’s big day speaks for itself:

Responses poured in immediately:

Boston’s series with Miami was extremely tense. One female fan’s provocative gesture ticked off the entire opposing fan base, though it’s unclear what role it had in motivating the team itself.

Beyond that there were also notable dirty plays and family members getting involved, which also serve as a testament to how hotly-contested the Eastern Conference Finals were.

In the end, however – the Celtics prevailed.

Will the same hold true in the NBA Finals? Will Long be able to do her little dance when her husband brings home a championship? An answer should emerge soon enough.
