As might be expected with any brand new head coach, Ime Udoka has had some road bumps during his first season as the head coach of the Boston Celtics. And while some of the decisions he has made regarding his starters and rotations have at times caused fans and analysts confusion, there appears to be some recognition regarding what does and does not work with this iteration of the Celtics reflected in recent choices made by the coach.

Still, one has to wonder if a little advice could help — or perhaps is already helping — the first-time head coach improve the logical foundations of who shares the court with whom and when. And with former head coach and current President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens available to bounce ideas off of, perhaps there is already someone in-house to give Udoka some feedback on where his coaching could be stronger.

In a recent episode of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast, host Evan Valenti is joined by Forbes Sports’ Chris Grenham to talk about Udoka’s role in the Celtics’ recent struggles, and whether Stevens is an underutilized resource Udoka could be drawing on for help fixing them.

Watch the pod embedded above to hear their takes on the Portland native’s work so far this season, and what he might do to improve it.
