Nia Long upset with Celtics over Ime Udoka scandal; could they have done things differently?

Actress Nia Long re-awoke discussion of the scandal engulfing Ime Udoka — her then-partner and head coach of the Boston Celtics — when she recently granted an interview that touched on her experience during the unfolding of the scandal that saw Udoka suspended by the team for a year with little chance of his returning to the team afterward.

Long highlighted how the media circus impacted her and her son Kez’s lives and claimed that the Celtics did not reach out to her, but it is unclear whether Boston would have been able to from a legal perspective, which was a topic of conversation on a recent episode of NBC’s “Brother from Another” show.

That doesn’t mean things might not have been handled better overall, perhaps, but the cloud of uncertainty still hanging over the situation makes things very opaque even now.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what the hosts had to say.
