The “disgusting” portrayal of the claims against Ime Udoka in the media and by basketball fans on social media is being criticised by Boston Celtics reporter Amanda Pflugrad. After a month-long inquiry, the Celtics banned the second-year head coach for the entire 2022–23 season.

At the moment, Amanda Pflugrad works as the Boston Celtics’ team reporter and host for the 17-time world champions. She performs pre- and post-game interviews with players and coaches and gives in-game summaries and analysis. The Boston Celtics’ coach Ime Udoka, who led his team to the NBA Finals, has been suspended for a year for improper behavior in the workplace, which is said to have been caused by an inappropriate and consensual relationship with a female employee of the Celtics.

The Celtics said on Thursday that Udoka had been suspended immediately for breaking the rules of the company and that a determination about his future with the team after this season will be made at a later date.

The era of Boston Celtics under Ime Udoka

Ime Udoka’s Boston Celtics in 2021–2022 were among the most unexpected teams in recent NBA history. The Celtics were excluded from the Eastern Conference playoff picture halfway through January, but the season then started to turn around. With a record of 26-6, Boston wrapped up the regular season and secured the No. 2 seed in the postseason. Despite panning out a surprising sweep of the Brooklyn Nets in the first round, the Boston Celtics defeated the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks in the semifinals. For the first time since 2010, the Boston Celtics qualified for the NBA Finals by defeating the Miami Heat in seven games of the Conference Finals.

The Celtics’ remarkable journey came to an end in the NBA Finals. Despite Boston leading the series, the Golden State Warriors won their fourth championship in eight years. In order to win the series, the Warriors won three straight games, including games four and six in Boston. Udoka arrived with a defensive attitude. They respect his style even if he can be impolite to players in person and in the media. Udoka helped the Celtics develop into title contenders, especially in the second half of the season when they turned things around and kept the second seed in the East. He faced battle in the playoffs against legendary head coaches Steve Kerr, Mike Budenholzer, and Erik Spoelstra for the championship.

Amanda Pflugrad on the latest controversy surrounding the franchise

The team reporter for the Celtics, Amanda Pflugrad, voice her opinions out on this subject has now come forward. She implied on a tweet that: “As a female of the Celtics organization, watching these last few days unfold has been heartbreaking, seeing uninvolved people’s names thrown around in the media, including mine, with such carelessness is disgusting.” Whatever information we may have about what Udoka did or did not do, it does not give us the right to use a woman’s name to support the accused guy, and nobody has paid attention to the harm it is doing to the reputations and quality of life of all the women whose names are casually mentioned.

Although the team has not disclosed the identity of the female employee, the media and fans have made an effort to do so, even going so far as to publish names and images online. The names and images of the female employees of Boston have been circulated on social media as a result of people searching the internet for information about their identities. One of the women that were targeted was Amanda Pflugrad and she did the right thing by speaking out. Beyond the 2022–2023 season, Ime Udoka’s future with the Celtics is uncertain because the team has not made a decision on him.
