Sentimental Brad Stevens deplores speculation about the status of Udoka who originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Boston Celtics head of basketball operations Brad Stevens did not hide his words while addressing speculation about the Im Odoka controversy.

Stevens and team owner Wyc Grousbeck represented the Celtics at the press conference Friday that addressed Udoka’s season-long suspension for violating regulatory guidelines. According to multiple reports, Odoka was disciplined for having an inappropriate relationship with a cast member.

While Stevens and Grosbeek have shared some details about Odoka’s actions and the investigation that took place, they have repeatedly emphasized the seriousness of the situation. In addition, the apparently emotional Stevens denounced the “rampant” speculation on Twitter about the women on the Celtics crew.

“We have a lot of talented women in our organization, and yesterday I thought it was hard for them,” Stevens said. “No one can control the speculation of Twitter and rampant bulls —, but I think we as an organization have a responsibility to make sure we are there to support them now, because a lot of people have been unfairly dragged into it. . . .

“That was really unfair, in my opinion,” he added. “And I don’t know how to control Twitter. And obviously there’s a lot we can say. But our mission is to support, and our mission is to be there where everyone is going through tough times. Everyone takes these things differently, but yesterday it was unfair to them.”

Grosbeek later confirmed that Odoka was the only individual to be disciplined.

Amina Smith also condemned the baseless Twitter rumors about women in the Celtics on Friday first edition.
