Reacting to the Ime Udoka situation with the Boston Celtics and the social media fallout

The fallout of the rumors currently rocking the Boston Celtics is not only affecting the team and head coach Ime Udoka; the reaction of fans and digital rubberneckers on social media attempting to play internet sleuth about who else might be entangled in this mess is actively damaging the reputation of Celtics employees who are innocent bystanders.

Compounded by click-hungry approaches to journalism that prioritize being first to publish over well-researched reporting and a slow internal response from the franchise, a bad situation has become a worse one for virtually all involved in one of the worst scandals to rock the organization in recent history.

What do we know? What DON’T we know? On a recent episode of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast, the hosts broke down what information has been reported, as well as react to the way the situation has been handled so far.
