We may never get the full story as the Celtics and Udoka have both decided not to say much in their statements.
What we do know is that Udoka has been suspended for the season and there are no guarantees he won’t be fired in the future.
He apologized for his actions.
“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down,” Udoka said in a statement. “I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment.”
It has been reported that Udoka had a consensual relationship with a Celtics female staffer.
Secondly, people want to know why the Celtics are considering such an extreme punishment for an office affair.
The reason is that it simply wasn’t an office affair. Rumors are that Udoka was having relationships with married Celtics staffers. That wouldn’t be a big deal if they were married to a plumber, but in one case, it is being reported the woman is married to a Celtics Sr. Vice President. As you can imagine, that didn’t go over well when the affair was uncovered. Udoka was given an opportunity to end all his affairs quietly but chose not to.
A Celtics staffer Kathleen Nimmo Lynch deleted all her social media a few days before the story broke, leading people on social media to believe she was the staffer that Udoka was having the affair with via EFOCUS news, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
One has to wonder if more information will come out or is this the end of the story.
People who are in Udoka’s corner believe the punishment is too harsh for an office affair if it was indeed consensual.
There is also the issue of who leaked the info.
