The GIST: Double the Massachusetts-native Mewis sisters representation on the USWNT roster and Nia Long’s husband as the new Celtics head coach (HC)? Happy Thursday indeed, Boston.
🏀Celtics: The C’s made the first offseason HC hiring, selecting Ime Udoka (pronounced ee-MAY you-DOH-ka) as the 18th head coach in Celtics history. Udoka played in the NBA for six years before joining the San Antonio Spurs as an assistant in 2012 (where he won an NBA title in 2014). More recently, he was an assistant with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets.
- While he’s not to coach the C’s, Udoka’s hiring will in the NBA coaching ranks. Pair that with from Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
The Sox couldn’t overcome Richards’ dismal start, falling 8–2 to the Tampa Bay Rays. Boston will go for the series win tonight at 7:10 p.m. ET before hosting the
Evil Empire NY Yankees for a three-game set beginning tomorrow.
