Twitter can ruin careers. ESPN is currently investigating basketball analyst Dan Dakich after he made some controversial comments online, and also on his Indianapolis radio show last week, according to USA Today. The issue stemmed from a Twitter feud he had with several professors about former Blue Devils star Jalen Johnson’s decision to opt out of the rest of the season in favor of preparing for the NBA draft.

Dakich, who has a long history of controversial comments and social media posts, briefly shut down his Twitter account on Sunday.
“We are taking this matter very seriously and are in the process of looking into it,” ESPN said in a statement, via USA Today.
Dakich started fighting with Duke lecturing fellow Nathan Kalman-Lamb and Dr. Johanna Mellis of Ursinus College.
Jalen Johnson may not be allowed to get paid for his name, image, or likeness, but why should that stop Seth Davis from cashing in on them?
