Video: Ime Udoka talks his first NBA playoffs as a head coach
There was a point earlier this season where I said the Boston media was as down on the Celtics head coach as any time I can remember since Rick Pitino roamed the sidelines. And we're talking beat writers in modern times who tend to be as much (if not more) fans, than objective reporters. But then something suddenly happened.
Boston started winning. Their defense hit an elite level and the team started sharing the ball. Not just the team, but their superstars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as well. Boston kept winning. Their offense joined their defense atop the NBA and now we're 3 games away from the playoffs.
NO ONE is calling for Udoka's job anymore. In fact the man has a very solid case for the NBA Coach of the Year crown in his first head coaching season no less.
Here is Udoka talking his first coaching playoffs as well as playoff seeding. Video via CLNS.
