Who is Allison Feaster?

Allison Feaster made history in her basketball career, first becoming a household name on the Harvard court in the 1997-1998 season when she scored an average of 28.5 points per game.

The following season she joined the WNBA, where she stayed for ten seasons and also traveled to play basketball in Portugal, France, and Spain.

Now the Vice President of Player Development & Organizational Growth with the Boston Celtics, Feaster told The Undefeated, “I didn’t get her by myself,” Andscape reported.

“My mom had to work so hard. She worked hard and by herself. And there’s so many people along the way who invested in me. … and so it’s not me. It’s not me and I don’t ever think that it’s me doing this.

“I am a product of those who are important to me and I am a champion for those who are coming after me.”

Feaster has held the vice president position with the Celtics since 2019 when she received a phone call from Danny Ainge, the Celtics’ president of basketball operations.

She was interviewing with another team when she got the call and told NBC Sports it was a “no brainer” to accept the Celtics offer.

“It would have been an amazing opportunity to join an organization as storied as the Celtics; and not just because of the rich history but because of the people,” Feaster said.

“But leadership in Danny, Mike, Brad, Rich. I was just really impressed. They were very helpful in my early journey.”

Kemba Walker told the outlet he and his teammates have so much respect for Feaster and what she brings to the team as well as making the transition of players easier.

“We all have so much respect for Allison,” Walker said, adding: “It means a lot.

“To have an African-American female in that position, that’s a big time. It gives young, Black girls hope in this business, in this league, period. It’s hard to get that position.”

He continued: “But she’s super-intelligent, she played, went to Harvard, has so many connections… She carries herself super-well. It’s a blessing to have her around.”

What rumors were spread about Allison Feaster?

False news spread on social media as rumors surfaced about Ime Udoka, the head coach of the Boston Celtics, reportedly having a relationship with a female on staff.

As internet sleuths started searching the Celtics staffing log, they homed in on Feaster, with many taking to Twitter to accuse her of having an unfounded affair with Udoka.

Udoka’s alleged affair with a staffer violates the company’s code of conduct and is grounds for suspension or termination.

Marc Spears, the Senior NBA writer for ESPN and Andscape, negated the accusations against Feaster.

“For those speculating and curious about the Celtics’ situation, Vice-President of Player Development and Organizational Growth Allison Feaster is not involved in this,” Spears wrote on Twitter.

The identity of the woman Udoka is reportedly having relations with has not been confirmed.

Was Ime Udoka suspended?

Following the allegations, the Boston Celtics announced Udoka has been suspended pending further investigation.

In a statement, the Celtics said: “… The team has suspended Head Coach Ime Udoka for the 2022-23 season for violations of team policies.

“A decision about his future with the Celtics beyond this season will be made at a later date. The suspension takes effect immediately.”

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said the Celtics have moved assistant coach Joe Mazzulla into the position of interim head coach.

Udoka responded to the events in a statement and said: “I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down.

“I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation and I accept the team’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment.”
