    Just poorly handled all around.

    3 days? Didnít it just hit the news yesterday and they released a statement last night?

    Wyk should be out in front of cameras for sure. Not sure how they avoid people being assholes and trying to figure out who it is. That happens regardless.

    I donít think they were fully prepared for this to leak yesterday. Maybe Imeís people leaked it intentionally to cause all this disarray? Either way, Iím not sure how a situation like this gets handled with a positive outcome.

    It leaked Wednesday night obviously from someone inside the Cs

    They released a statement during TNF

    Re: The NBA Thread

    The Celtics, meanwhile, are guilty of a different transgression. First, someone from the organization leaked the story to ESPN at nearly 11 p.m. on Wednesday, which was intentional. And then once the specifics surfaced, that Udoka had an inappropriate relationship with a female member of the organization, Twitter gangsters began searching the teamís website for any female-sounding name and suddenly started guessing who was Udokaís partner.

    The most logical choice in their warped minds was Allison Feaster, the Celticsí vice president of player development and organizational growth. Feaster is a former Harvard star, WNBA player and a stunning Black woman. The natural assumption, because we never wait for facts, was Feaster was the woman Udoka had a relationship with.

    Attractive Black man and attractive Black woman have to be fooling around, and for several hours Feasterís photo was posted on social media as the culprit. It wasnít her, and the Celtics could have protected her and many other women in their organization by at least releasing a statement offering clarity.

    It wouldnít have saved every woman from scrutiny but at least it would have shown leadership and a strong voice from an organization that apparently prides itself on being the most respected and pristine in professional sports. The Celtics failed Feaster, who likely spent the day avoiding any social media pages and ignoring her direct messages and mentions.

    Instead, she is left hanging, like the rest of us who are seeking answers. Professional sports coaches are generally not suspended by their teams, especially for a season (wbz)

    SoÖ a dayÖnot 3.

    Also, how do does Gary know it was someone from the organization that leaked it? Itís just as likely that someone from Imeís team leaked it. Maybe even more likely given that they knew about the year long suspension already and wanted to create some hysteria to see if the Celtics would back off of that a bit.

    If it began as consensual and then turned into unwanted via Shamsí reporting, the fact that heís still employed looks pretty bad.

    wait not a lot happened from the presser

    lot of Mazzulla endorsement (and clearing the air about a battery charge when he was in college)

    they said a private law firm did the investigation on Udoka and found “multiple violations”. no details of course

    Stevens got emotional talking about the women in the organization and how they got memed on twitter

    BradBot swore which was my biggest takeaway



    I think the organization wants him gone, this suspension is the middle ground right now while they lawyers/team figure shit out. Money etc


    I think the players want him here


    What a fucking mess this guy caused because he canít keep it in his pants

    I don't understand why they don't just fire him if they are going to suspend him for 1 year.

    reading between the lines he’s not getting fired bc he’s good

    if Mazzulla is good or if someone better is available that’s their out to let him go

    and frankly would be awesome to have him lead San Antonio where he belongs tbh

    He's effectively fired they just needed to bide time. Some speculate they want him to resign so he doesn't get paid as much. The year is just so they don't have to answer 1,000 questions of when he's coming back this year and what will happen.

    agreed tbh

    no real new information after the presser today other than the Barnes thing.

    just purely justinandimcool speculation thinking “what’s horrible but not completely fireable”, this is a pregnancy situation tbh. i feel gross for speculating but hey filling in the gaps is what everyone is doing thanks to this wonderful journalism

    i guess Nia Long just moved herself and their child to Boston in the past couple of weeks and was completely blindsided. Udoka knew he was caught in July when the investigation started and didn’t tell her. sigh. hate tabloid stuff but that sucks




    i think the year suspension is truly insurance-

    if Mazzulla sucks and loses the team, bring Udoka back for a complete face turn bc winning cures everything (see Alex Cora, kinda Jason Kidd)

    if Mazzulla is good, let Udoka go

    tbh if Will Hardy (imo the next good young coach) was still on staff he would’ve been promoted in a heartbeat and Udoka fired right away

    Idk that seems fine for McCollum barring injury.

    He played really good after the trade and has the type of game that should age fine.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    4/130 extension for Herro

    curious to hear inside info. i don’t think Miami likes him that much and clearly shopped him, but a deal had to be done while his value was high. can’t risk losing him for nothing or have him tank his own value. Simons broke the market and Herro/his agent did a good job being boisterous about the dollar amount.

    if he plays well he’ll be much more valuable to another team than Miami, and could net them a good return. decent signing for both sides, though a necessary risk for the Heat
