    No one was happier to see the Boston Celtics reach the NBA Finals than actress Nia Long, who is the fiancee of head coach Ime Udoka. It was a long journey for the Boston Celtics since they lost Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals to the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Getty Nia Long and Ime Udoka attend BET Presents the American Black Film Festival Honors in 2017. Perhaps more than any other team in the NBA, the Boston Celtics have reshaped their organization. Of all the changes that have occurred over the last several months, though, the Beantowners’ coaching switcheroo was arguably the biggest. While Brad Stevens is navigating shark-infested waters as a first-time team president, its up to his replacement on the sidelines, Ime Udoka, to actually put all the pieces together on the court. Despite the enormity of it all — not to mention the fact that the Celtics post is Udoka’s first NBA head-coaching gig — the former player and longtime assistant was apparently all chill when he got hired. At the least, that’s what his partner, actress Nia Long, observed.
