Okay, Chico  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I literally just posted that Durant was a top 5 player and Tatum wasn’t.

But I guess your argument only works if you make up something to argue against.

You literally posted an article “proving” you didn’t have a dumb take because KD was ranked 7. Tatum was ranked 6. So you’re discrediting your own source that you claimed makes you not an idiot…

I would imagine there is more to this Udoka story that we don't know.

Would you take Jokic or Doncic if you had to make that choice?

The 1-year Udoka suspension is now official.  I can't see him back with the Celtics frankly.

I don't think so.  Guy had an affair with the female staffer, and either got dimed out by someone or the female staffer gave him up.  Maybe he told her he would leave his actress wife for her and he didn't and she got pissed off.

I do agree with you that I can't see him overcoming this and making a "comeback" in 2023-2024 season.  If he did not lead Celtics to Finals or if it was any other coach in these times, they we be fired, not suspended.

I agree completely with your last sentence.  As far as the possibility that he could have told this woman he was going to leave his partner?  That's certainly plausible.  There are a number of things that could have happened of course.  I expect there will be more details, including who actually leaked the situation. Regardless, it makes pretty much zero sense he will be back in Boston in 2024 or ever.

Celtics are dumb.

Acting like they are taking some moral high ground but also dont fire him.

I'm with Stephen A. Do it in house or fire him.

Keep the word salad coming.

I did not say I agreed with every ESPN ranking.

I did say I ranked Durant in my top 5.

He might not be as “elite” as Love, but he’s pretty good.

They were trying to do it in house but it was leaked.

Some rumors that Ime's relationship wasn't just this innocent thing that they tried to make it out to be.  Celtics say it's a 1 year suspension and they'll reevaluate from there.  Yikes.

I saw some rumors on Reddit (so it’s 100% accurate) that it was more than one woman and one of the women was a Celtics Executive’s wife. He was told to stop and didn’t.

Who knows if any of that is true. It does seem like there’s more to the story.

Even consensual relationships when one of the people is in a position of power can be troublesome, and that's why many corporations and sports organizations discourage them -- and some come right out and forbid them.

This is the primary rumor, that she is the VP's wife.  I'm still pretty dumbfounded by the 1 year suspension.

It’s all legal maneuvering. They can suspend, then truly reevaluate (or basically put the ball in his court to resign)…if they fire, opens themselves up to lawsuits from him.

I know the rumor mill is churning, but my guess he will be on the NBA sidelines for a long long time, and maybe forever. 

Also, I’m in the camp he has leaked all this info, not the Cs.  They ran an investigation for nearly 2 months from an independent law firm, then all of sudden (with no leaks), then at the very end a report about a “consensual” relationship between adults is leaked?  Dude is cooked

Ya.....that part of the leak is pretty interesting.  I still think there's more to this story.  If it was consensual wouldn't the female employee be violating team rules as well?  Maybe it began that way, who knows?  This is a mess.
