After being the man of the hour for turning things around in Boston, Ime Udoka is one of the hottest topics in the NBA right now, but not for the best reasons. The Boston Celtics head coach did a terrific job with his team last year, going all the way to the NBA Finals, where they sadly lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games. 

A couple of months after that moment, we learned that while Udoka was great on the bench, he was doing some incorrect things behind the scene. In recent hours, Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the head coach was facing a suspension from the team due to a "violation of organizational guidelines".

Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka is facing possible disciplinary action – including a significant suspension – for an unspecified violation of organizational guidelines. Discussions are ongoing within the Celtics on a final determination.

After Shams Charania of The Athletic provided more details about this, saying that Udoka had "an improper intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team staff", reactions didn't take long to arrive. This is huge for the sophomore head coach, the Celtics organization, and, more importantly, his partner. He's been in a relationship with actress Nia Long since 2010, and as soon as the news saw light, many people paid attention to whatever Long said or did on social media. 

It didn't take long for her to post something, sharing a cryptic message on Instagram that is hard to break down. 

"When you see people change their whole life, and start walking down a path of enlightenment --I'm talking about hugging trees, connecting with nature, loving themselves, embracing positivity, letting that light shine..." 

This was probably a message for herself or an inspiration for others. The point is that from now on, everything she does on social media will be analyzed by everybody. It's unclear if Long and Udoka had broken up before he got into this relationship with the Boston Celtics staffer, but fans are really invested in this. His job could now be in jeopardy and his 12-year relationship might be finished after this.
