EXPOSED: The Real Reason For The Ime Udoka Suspension

  • čas přidán 22. 09. 2022
  • The drama surrounding the Boston Celtics and especially their head coach Ime Udoka has been the main topic these past few days. And it culminated with the team suspending Udoka for a full season. This came as a shock to some, and it sure looks like a very steep penalty.
    So let me explain what’s the real reason behind the suspension. What up everybody, my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
    Shams Charania has new info on this topic that gives us a different perspective of the whole story.
    In his latest article on the Athletic, Charania writes that Some members of the Celtics organization first became aware of the relationship in July. At that time, team leadership was led to believe by both parties that the relationship was consensual. But the woman recently accused Udoka of making unwanted comments toward her - leading the team to launch a set of internal interviews. After which, the final decision was made.
    Now this is a new moment in this whole situation and a big one at that. This is the exact reason for why the code of conduct even exists.
    Remember the Dallas Mavericks debacle? There was a huge investigation done on Mavs office members that revealed sexual harassments, domestic violence, and all kinds of other detrimental behaviour. It ended ugly, and it even involved the owner Marc Cuban as a person who knew some of these issues but tried to come to settlements and confidentiality agreements.
    Well this is the exact scenario that the Celtics want to avoid. A case by case falloff and corrosion of the team’s culture.
    Even with having this code of conduct and these workplace guidelines, you see with this new info that they were still hesitant to implement when they found out about the affair.
    But once there was even the slightest change of tone by the woman, accusing Udoka of making certain comments, the team saw how this could be a slippery slope and how the issue might snowball into a much bigger thing.
    The woman could decide to sue, or go public with accusations, and her side of the story, all kinds of scenarios might develop from this. And you can see how it can become very ugly very soon.
    With this suspension however, I feel like Boston set the bar high. The standards to which the team members will be held, and the expectations for how they should conduct themselves are nothing short of professional.
    This is not some end of the bench guy, or an unknown team member, but rather the head coach we’re talking about. Possibly the greatest piece for their incredible turnaround and the road to the finals last year.
    It would be very tempting for a team to forgive and forget when it comes to a prominent piece of their success. But with this move, their action is loud and clear. The franchise, and the organization comes before any single member of it.
    It’s just unfortunate that it might be a step backwards for this team when it comes to actual basketball. This sudden coaching change for this season, along with the latest news that Robert Williams will have surgery and miss 4-6 weeks, it’s a huge blow. And suddenly the odds of them reaching the finals again have just plummeted.
    Let me know in the comments if you think that the Celtics can survive all of this. That’s it for now, subscribe and talk to you in the next one. Peace out.

    This is why there's the saying ”don't crap where you eat.” It might have even been different if it were co-workers at the same level in the organization, but as the head coach you have to know you're towards the top of the power food chain and any wiggle room for accusations, true or false, isn't good for the bottom line

      @Revolution Radio TC is right. If this happened when Favre was playing it would be publicized by sports networks. Darren Sharper is black and he went date raping women but you barely heard about it because he was retired. Vick, Watson, Udoka were active players/coaches with obligation to organizations and the league. That's why they got so much publicity.

    Either he wouldn't leave his chick and she got mad, or she wanted to stop and he was still trying to holla etc, regardless, never mess with someone you work with. Especially if you both have someone else. Someone is gonna catch feelings stronger and when it's not reciprocated , things like this happen. Dude is rich, he could've found a look alike outside the organization like, come on dude. PLUS he had Nia Long! Like, come on....But also, what if she was on some "if you don't keep......ima say...". It's a crap shoot like, just don't do it. Don't mess up your $ for ______.

    Let me get this straight...
    Ime Udoka was involved in a CONSENSUAL workplace relationship with a co-worker BUT all we hear about in this sham of a "press conference" is only information demonizing and vilifying him along with detailed information about punitive action taken against him.
    We do not hear anything about the woman who knew he was engaged and still got involved in a consensual relationship with him which violated Celtic workplace guidelines.
    Who is she, what is her name and what if any punitive action was taken against her?
    Oh that's right...she is a woman and also white so it makes total sense that she should be protected and treated as a victim.
    He is a man and also black so it would make total sense that he should be treated as the aggressor who "took advantage of her" so he should be publicly destroyed and left "hung" out to dry by the Celtics.
    Even some of the questions asked and comments made in this press conference had so many uncomfortable racial undertones which made me cringe.
    I almost burst out in laughter when this hypocritical fool almost blubbered into tears about "these poor women" (probably white) who didn't deserve some Twitter comments...give me a frigging break!!!
    Granted Ime Udoka is a world class IDIOT for tricking off his career, reputation and potential wife for some potato salad/cole slaw/wonderbread....but whoever 'she' is, she should also share some of this public scrutiny and judgement with him.

  • Anodyne Hipster Influencer

    Just an incredibly selfish, entitled and shitty thing for Udoka to do. Especially considering the makeup and dynamic of the team he had. Worse yet, for the Celtics to now _allow_ Udoka to circumvent his suspension by taking the Nets HC job and not demand compensation is absolutely mind boggling. Then why suspend him at all? It sends the wrong message to so many different people on so many different levels. If not for the compensation then at least for this; if the organization felt that whatever it was that transpired was truly unbecoming, especially for an NBA head coach, you'd imagine they would at _least_ prevent him from taking another position for a season. Thereby forcing him to "take his medicine" and deal with the suspension. Now, it chalks up to missing less than 10 games before being able to leave what obviously was now an uncomfortable place for him. Take another head coaching job with a situation that for him is a win/win (if the Nets don't improve, it'll still be on KD, Kyrie, Simmons and the front office's shoulders. If they improve, he'll be hailed as the driving force behind it) and do with the team losing _nothing._ Not even a draft pick. Not to mention to a team that is the Celtic's direct competition and rival. This sends the wrong message to the Celtic's players, fans and any people involved in a similar situation to the one that got Udoka suspended in the first place. Both victims and perpetrators alike.

    Alasdair Macdonald Před 2 měsíci +1

    I don't think the coaching will actually be impacted all that much. The rest of the staff know what the plan is. Ime isn't some Spo or Nick Nurse level in the moment strategist. The team bought in to key concepts and they went on a roll that got them very close to a chip. They've upgraded the team in the off season with all the key pieces coming back. Time Lord will be out at the start of the season but it's only matters if he misses significantly more time or is injured when the playoffs roll around.
    What is weird is that they didn't just fire the guy. Personally I agree with Stephen A Smith (which is weird to say tbh) airing this unless you were going to fire the guy just seems strange. How does he possibly come back to the team next season and it not be uncomfortable as shit? Would have been smarter to just move on straight away.
    Boston will still be a top contender to come out of the east regardless.

      E1GHTYONE Před 2 měsíci +3

      I am of this same mindset.
      If it's consensual, the reporting has to be accurate. If it isn't, the proof of guilt has to be proven.
      To my knowledge, it was consensual. She only began to backtrack after the story got out, and she decided to try to save herself from ridicule and shame, for sleeping with a man who (I assume) she KNEW was in a relationship.
      Now, it's PR time. Spin the story, get some good pictures, and suddenly play unaware and ditzy; oblivious to the entire situation, including his high profile relationship, with Nia Long.
      ... It must be nice.

    The NBA executives and team owners sat in a secret room to propagandize this incident to take attention away from Robert Sarver's matter. They must have pressured the Celtics owner or gave him something ominous in return in that secret meeting to participate in this propagandizing - cuz there's no way the Celtics just gonna sabotage their season after a Finals run for a meager romantic affair in the coaching staff.

      You are right. They are making an example out of Ime by using the scorched earth/zero tolerance policy established by the black community everytime a racially insensitive incident occurs. I called it as soon as Lebron complained about Sarver's 1 year suspension. I am not saying Sarver was correct, but a man should not have to forfeit his livelihood for a mistake unless that mistake truly warrants a forfeiture. What happened to trying to be better or corrective action to avoid such mistakes in the future. The one year suspension matches Sarver's one year suspension. Now that Sarver is selling, Ime is definitely getting fired. We established this precedent and I warned the warhawks to back off. If players are caught saying the N word even to other players as a term of endearment, suspensions are coming. Hyper aggressive zealots never think about the possible retaliatory options of their opponents. Prepare for more.

    I don't see the point or upside in suspending him for a year if that is your view of the situation then you would be better off firing him or possibly asking him to resign. The Celtics will just have this hanging over their heads the whole year and into the next, how can they bring him back after a year anyway, there would be just too much controversy and the team would be all distracted. Udoka did a good job of coaching but all the controversy would not be worth it for all parties involved.

    This is because of the infidelity and not workplace romance right? Spoelstra dated a heat cheerleader and married her without any consequences.

    the Cs had a press conference today, 2 things of note: they brought in a law firm to handle the investigation, so it ain't He said / She said, it's real proof, personal info, and they will not be sharing it. : : Celtics exc is not related to the woman despite same surname, her husband is someone outside the organization. also, she has been named in numerous reports (see google). briefly, they were found out in July, they were both told to stop, they are both in long-term relationships with others, and it's against corporate policy anyway. apparently, he didn't listen and she did, hence the reports of "unwanted comments." and other possible errors of judgement. that's about as much info as there is in all the speculative reports online etc.

    I felt like there had to be more. Especially considering that what, like HALF of the league has children with multiple women, goes to strip clubs on the daily, and just generally sleeps around. Heck, some guys were so addicted to sex that they snuck women into the bubble during a pandemic. Why is it that all the players can do this, but not a coach?

    • Rusty Reno

      His “comment” to the woman after the Celtics were made aware of the relationship is what got him suspended and probably fired after the season.

      There are consent issues. A boss having an affair with a low ranking individual can be seen as using power to force things to happen. Combined with the complaints of the women make it a really dangerous and possibly illegal situation

      @mrhellokat I guarantee you players have sex with members of the staff. I'd bet my life on it. But players hold all the cards, and coaches are often thrown under the bus. I don't even like Udoka or the Celtics, but this just reeks of cancel culture and hypocrisy.

Now you have a consensual affair and some inappropriate comments and you gone for a year?? American hypocrisy at its finest. Also, would this be the penalty if he had Brad Steven's skin colour?? Ridiculous

      I think they suspended him and hope he resigns by himself. Saves on the payout of his contract plus avoids the possibility of a lawsuit. He isn't coming back. One of the woman he was doing was the wife of the Celtics Vice President. The Celtics management aren't going to forgive that!

    If it were to be a relationship with another man he would be applauded instead of crucified. To me this is a non issue so why not handle that internally. She should be suspended as well. He had consensual relations but now is being blamed. Then people wonder why testosterone is dropping in men. But anyways this is common across all work spaces.

  • Ryan Nicolas Pasinos

    i don't know the whole story -- whether if it's really consensual or not. but regardless, suspending him for a year is a dick move. if it's consensual, why suspend him for a year?! if it's not, then have the nba decide on the matter whether or not to suspend him or ban him from the league. otherwise, just fire him so that he can move on to other opportunities.

    yes it is lawsuit waiting to happen, I agree. But that's not the case. It's been confirmed to have been consensual. They're not firing him, he's still on payroll. Therefore just keep it in house. Why humiliate him then fire him anyway after 1yr. How will this effect his family. You can deal with a situation privately However in public you're fighting a loosing battle. Their approach was not well thought out.

    News and Topics...
    I been playing basketball about half of my life. Just outdoors basic basketball.
    I have watch some of the greatest players in the world and been a student of the game ever since I was a child.
    I have said on many occasions what the N.B.A. is playing now is gimmick basketball because there are no true coaches in the N.B.A.
    Everybody just copies what they thinks works. Everybody is scared of their star players.
    Denver had a Championship team the year they had JaVale McGee, but the coach was completely clueless that if he would have started JaVale at center and moved joker to power forward no team in the N.B.A. would have been able to match up with them.
    But you know what the Denver fans told me.... Joker don't want to play power forward.
    You throw away a Championship because ...Joker ....smh...are you serious?
    No real coaches, no real fans, no real players, just all tricks and smoking mirrors.
    The sad part is I could take any team in the N.B.A. and take them back to fundamentals
    and respect and pride and win a Championship my first year as coach.
    But I will never get a chance because owners only allow puppet coaches to run their team.
    It's a veery sad trend and it's killing the N.B.A.
