‘Sleeping around’ tweet adds another twist to Ime Udoka Celtics scandal

“If there is one person who will never be fired for sleeping around,” this tweet about Ime Udoka’s scandal implies.

Imme Udoka’s scandal related to ‘ sleeping around’ post

Udoka led his team to the NBA Finals in his first season as head coach, allegedly had an unsuitable relationship with a team employee. Wojnarowski called the relationship “consensual” and “intimate,” while Shams Charania of The Athletic used the word “improper” in his reporting.

A tweet strangely implied that “if there is one person who will never get fired for sleeping around” it is Udoka.

This tweet was sent more than an hour before Woj’s initial post about Udoka’s disciplinary action at 10:35 p.m. EST. This was also several hours before Charania first reported that Udoka had a “intimate” relationship with a staffer at 12:50 a.m. EST.

Furthermore, this acct had previously tweeted details about the NBA salary cap that only someone with a thorough understanding of the league would know.

This could all be a crazy coincidence, but because of the sensitive information, NBA fans are scrambling to find out if this was a burner account of someone in the know.
