The Celtics Pride guys are back together again to talk all things Celtics. They start this week’s episode by offering a few more trade ideas before delving into the recent response to head coach Ime Udoka’s comments and philosophy of honesty.

“Honest Ime,” as Adam calls him, is nothing if not direct, and the Pride guys weigh in on this approach. Unlike some media members, the Celtics Pride crew doesn’t see Udoka throwing his players under the bus. Instead, they see his comments as being parallel to exactly what all the fans are watching on the court. They then promote CelticsBlog’s Adam Spinella’s recent article supporting Udoka as creating a player-led culture of accountability, autonomy and leadership.

They wrap up the episode by discussing why all the losing the Celtics are doing could actually be a good thing for the Celtics stars, and the team in the future. How could this be? Tune in to find out.

About Celtics PRIDE Podcast: Co-Hosts Adam Motenko, his identical twin brother Josh Motenko, and their friend Mike Minkoff couldn’t stop talking about the team. Now they supply your need for Boston Celtics content with their regular podcast on CelticsBlog.

They will talk nerdy to you, dissect the players on and off the court, and bicker like only opinionated New Englanders can. It’s like if CelticsBlog made a BasketballJones / Dunc’dOn lovechild.

You will get the coach’s perspective, the capologist’s view, and a healthy dose of advanced and traditional stats that breakdown everything that happened and could happen with the #1 dynasty in the NBA. If you often find yourself reminiscing about the players you grew up watching, or you just need reminders about what “being a Celtic” means to you, this is the podcast for you. This is Celtics PRIDE!
