From actress to basketball fan! Actress Nia Long is stanning out after her fiance Ime Udoka snagged the head coaching gig for the Boston Celtics. More inside…




Famed actress Nia Long is a new Boston Celtics fan!

The reason? Well, she has a good one. Her fiancé, Ime Udoka, just nabbed the head coaching position for the Boston Celtics. The Best Man actress hopped on Instagram to celebrate her man’s new gig by rocking a symoblic Celtics No. 18 jersey in a cute selfie.

“I like the number 18. The legacy continues @celtics,” she captioned her post, with the hashtag, #coachudoka18, noting her future husband will chase the storied franchise’s 18th title. Noice!



The 43-year-old former NBA baller told the media during a press conference that he hopes to bring the city a championship and said he’s ready to push Boston’s young stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Check it:



Nia Long also shared a picture of her BAE and president of basketball operations Brad Stevens all smiles during his first day on the job. Udoka is Stevens’ replacement after Boston’s former head coach was promoted to head of basketball operations following Danny Ainge’s departure.

Before landing in Boston, Ime Udoka was an assistant with the Brooklyn Nets before he joined the Celtics. He previously spent seven seasons as a Spurs assistant, from 2012-2019, under coach Gregg Popovich.
