LeBron James was accused of getting revenge on former Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka for publicly calling him out on December 2 -- this during an eventual 107-97 Los Angeles Lakers victory over the Houston Rockets in an act that got the Rockets head man ejected -- in the form of pulling strings to have his agent, Rich Paul, invite both Cam'ron and Udoka's ex-fiance, Nia Long, to his birthday party to facilitate the two meeting given the rapper's romantic interest in Long.
"Cam has a crush on Nia Long after finding out her husband cheats, Lebron gets into an argument w/ Udoka (Nia’s cheating Husband), Lebrons agent/bestfriend Rich Paul invites Camron and Nia along to his birthday party, (Cam'ron and Nia Long) finally connect," one podcaster prefaced before saying, "This was a super chest move."
Long had asked for privacy in the aftermath of the Udoka infidelity scandal, claiming that she wanted to focus on her kids instead of answering questions about the affair.
"The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and the community during this difficult time means so much to me," Long's statement via her rep read on September 23, 2022. "I ask that my privacy be respected as I process the recent events. Above all, I am a mother and will continue to focus on my children."
Evidently, enough time has passed, and Long is moving on from the PR nightmare that was Udoka's affair with a Celtics staffer.
What LeBron James and former Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka said to each other during confrontation
James and Udoka didn't hold back, yelling NSFW words at each other on the court. Well mostly from Udoka's side to be clear.
“Stop crying like b*tches, man," Udoka said to James.
"We’re all grown men, that b*tch word ain’t cool," James said back.
"Soft a** boy, stop b*tching," Udoka prefaced before saying, "Acting like you’re gonna do something."
If James really did intentionally get Cam'ron and Long in the same room to spite Udoka, it's not hard to see what would've prompted that.
