BOSTON – Ime Udoka is bringing a fresh voice to the Boston Celtics.
Following Boston’s practice, Udoka said that he wants to see his new team cut out something that has given the Celtics a bad rep over the last few years: Quit complaining to refs so darn much. In their defense, the officiating in the NBA is pretty bad.
But the number of times when certain players – we’re looking at you, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart – were a step or two behind a play because they were busy sharing their opinion with the zebras was far too abundant over the last few years. Now we’ll wait to see just how much restraint Celtics players can show when games – and missed calls – begin later this month.
