Could the Boston Celtics success under Joe Mazzula chill interest in hiring Ime Udoka?

Boston Celtics we are doing well without a suspended head coach Cooking Udoki — and that could be bad news for his NBA coaching future. according Bill Reuter of CBS Sports.

The argument, essentially, is that if things are going so well in Boston, it’s actually better than when Udoka led the team at this point last season for quite a bit – it’s arguable that a fair amount of that success for Boston under Udoka can be attributed more to players who have reached their prime than to anyone who led them.

“The Celtics’ surge under acting head coach Mazzulla may be enough to draw a different conclusion,” Reiter wrote. Why? Teams might think hiring him “just isn’t worth it,” according to a CBS analyst.

“We often confuse the greatness of a coach with the greatness of his team,” suggests Reiter. “The magic or accident of a coach’s influence on a team is so hard to decipher.”

“Yes, Udoka coached this team. But Mazzulla’s short tenure and the Celtics’ strong start suggest that this team can succeed under a variety of coaches.”

Since the season is barely a quarter over, such a prospect may be extremely premature. But that will certainly be something other teams will be thinking about if they are considering changing coaches – and there could be a difference that Mazzulla’s interim tag will be taken down sooner rather than later.
