Nia Long Criticizes Celtics For Making Family Business Public “Could Have Been Handled Internally”
Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka dominated the headlines this past offseason, after it was revealed that the 45-year old head coach had an inappropriate relationship with a female Celtics staffer. Due to this and among other team violations, Udoka is currently suspended for the entire 2022-23 NBA season.
This eventually led to Udoka and Nia Long ending their 13-year relationship.
Now, Udoka’s former fiancée broke her silence on the scandal and put the Boston Celtics on blast for making a private situation available to the public. Long believes things could have been handled a different way.
Via The Cut:
“The Celtics made a choice to make my family business public, and I don’t understand why. It could’ve all been handled internally. I do understand why, but I can’t talk about it. Maybe one day I will. You know, fear drives stupidity, and I’ll leave that right there. I’ve learned that I’m stronger than I ever thought I was.”
