Which Celtics Staffer Did Ime Udoka Cheat On Nia Long With?

Ime Udoka found himself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this week when news came down that the Boston Celtics were preparing to discipline him.

Initially, ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported that a punishment of some sort was being prepared for Udoka over an unspecified violation of team rules.

Not long after, Shams Charania of The Athletic followed up with the specifics: Udoka had reportedly been involved in a “consensual” extramarital relationship with a team staffer.

Given the inappropriateness of this, it’s easy to see why the organization was preparing to punish their head coach.

Understandably, in light of the salacious nature of this whole ordeal and the fact that Udoka is married to beloved actress Nia Long, internet investigators immediately began to wonder who he cheated with.

It didn’t take long for the suggestions to roll in:

Then came this unfortunate tidbit:

Now, to be clear, there is no confirmation one way or the other that she is involved. In fact, folks online had other theories about who the woman in question might be:

An answer as to who the “other woman” in this case is will likely emerge soon enough.

That said, folks online couldn’t get over how badly Udoka fumbled the bag here.

Long is obviously a huge fan favorite among NBA fans for her incredible dancing videos from last year’s playoffs. That and her storied acting career endeared her to many a folks.

Udoka has yet to comment on what transpired here. Presumably that is coming soon, though.

How will he, Long and the Celtics bounce back from this unfortunate controversy?

Time will tell.
