In this article, you will get all information regarding Stephen A. from the Celtics for his handling of the Ime Udoka scandal. Smith is angry
Stephen A. Smith has a problem with how the Celtics are handling Ime Udoka.
The Boston head coach is facing a suspension that could last an entire season after having a consensual relationship with a team employee, violating the organization’s guidelines. Smith took aim at the Celtics for releasing this information to reporters and included race in his remarks.
“I’ve got news for you America: There are a lot of white people in professional sports who are doing their job. And I say that’s not complimentary,” Smith said. “I don’t see information about them. Why are we talking about this now? We have to talk about it because it is news. We have no business until you set him on fire.
“But if you keep him, it’s of no use to us. It should never have been put there by the Celtics organization — and don’t tell me you didn’t! Because you absolutely did — because news reporters did.” So, it came out of Boston. No one is in LA or Utah or leaking this stuff about the Boston Celtics. It’s all on you. It shouldn’t have been out of here. That’s what I have to say.”
At the beginning of the show, Smith did not let Udoka off the hook.
“It’s a stupid, stupid situation for him to find himself in,” Smith said. “They have no excuse to find themselves in this situation.”
Smith nonetheless rebuked the Celtics organization, saying it “can’t count the amount of fraternity or I dare say it’s going on in practically every organization in the NBA, NFL and MLB — people. They get together, they work together, it all happens at the same time.”
He reiterated that this was “excusing nothing” from Udoka, but upset the Celtics for allowing information of Udoka’s consensual relationship to get out there.
“I have a problem that an internal matter, which has nothing to do with the ball on the court, is being publicized. Groove. Delivered to the people. It’s none of our business,” Smith said.
Smith slammed the idea of a suspension, saying that Udoka should be fired or retained, and nothing in between.
Smith also said that Udoka will have to answer “more than the Boston Celtics” – and named his girlfriend Nia Long, indicating that the Celtics coach will be facing some heat at home.
