Article Summary:

“We are excited to add someone with his potential to our coaching staff.”

Early on his life as a coach, Udoka was delivering on exactly what Popovich expected when he hired the former player. Popovich’s comment on Udoka in 2015 is worth a look in Boston as Udoka takes that next step in his career.

That being said, Udoka is wise enough to know that Popovich cannot be emulated.
