Joe Mazzulla's Quizlet account, explained: Did internet find Celtics … – Sporting News


It hasn’t taken Joe Mazzulla long to prove himself as a head coach in the NBA.

A member of Boston’s coaching staff since 2019-20, Mazzulla was named interim head coach of the Celtics ahead of the 2022-23 season, stepping in for Ime Udoka, who is suspended for the entire campaign for violations of team policies.

Through a third of the season, the Celtics not only have the best record in the Eastern Conference, but they have the best record in the entire NBA. They look every bit like a title contender.

Mazzulla’s coaching has played a big role in Boston’s success so far, and the internet is now convinced they know some of his secrets because of a Quizlet account suspected to be his.

Joe Mazzulla’s Quizlet account, explained

Here’s how we got here.

On Dec. 15, Twitter user @groovyk8 tweeted that they were “trying to memorize all the Phoenix Suns players so I could talk shop with my bf” on Quizlet and stumbled across an account suspected to be run by Celtics interim head coach Joe Mazzulla.

The first giveaway? Screenshots shared showed the account’s name was “Joseph_Mazzulla” and featured an avatar of Mazzulla with his family. The second? It housed some detailed scouting reports on teams and players.

The tweet quickly gained steam on Twitter and became the No. 1 story on NBA Reddit.

According to Reddit user lilachocolate, Mazzulla’s wife, Camai Mazzulla, responded on Twitter with the following message:

That tweet, however, appears to have been deleted.

What was on Joe Mazzulla’s suspected Quizlet account?

The Quizlet account suspected to be Mazzulla’s was home to some pretty detailed scouting reports on both NBA players and teams. While the account has been deleted, a user on Reddit archived most of its content.

For example, here’s what was written about LeBron James:

TION. RIGHT SHOULDER IN THE POST. CANT LET HIM GET

A RHYTHM. BASELINE FADEAWAY JUMPER. ALERT TO TOP

The account was said to have not been updated since April 2021, before Mazzulla was named interim head coach of the Celtics.
