Is Grant Williams right about the differences between Celtics coaches Ime Udoka and Joe Mazzulla?

Former Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams recently discussed his experiences between his two former Boston head coaches Joe Mazzulla and Ime Udoka on the “Old Man and the 3” podcast.

Williams seemed to express a clear preference for Udoka’s coaching style, which places a strong emphasis on defense. The Charlotte native acknowledged the importance of offense but believes that a solid defensive foundation is crucial for a team’s success. However, Williams also recognized that Mazzulla’s offensive-oriented approach had its merits, and both coaching philosophies were subject to debates and disagreements among the players during his time with the Celtics.

The hosts of the “How Bout Them Celtics” podcast recently got together to talk about the Tennessee alum’s comments about Celtics coaching.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say about Williams’ views on the coaching he experienced with Boston.
