Report – Duke blue devils has permanently suspended Jared McCain…



Jason Kidd coaching for his job? Mavs ‘Have The Personnel’ to Play Better Defense?
After dropping five of their previous six games, the Dallas Mavericks are starting to get flashbacks to their disastrous season. At the end of the season, head coach Jason Kidd may lose his job if he is unable to turn things around with his club.



DALLAS — The first time Duke guard Jared McCain showed up at a basketball tournament with his fingernails painted — lavender was the original color he says with a laugh — he heard all the ugly comments one might expect.



“When I first did it at 16-and-under Peach Jam, a lot of people called me ‘TikTok,’” McCain said. “I didn’t really understand how that would affect me, but yeah, people just call me TikTok or gay or whatever they want to call me. It doesn’t really matter.”



McCain, the only freshman in Duke’s starting lineup, is a phenomenal basketball talent — a five-star prospect who could have chosen any school in the country. He’s a likely lottery pick in the NBA draft, whether it’s this year or next. He’s a huge reason the Blue Devils are one game away from the Final Four, averaging nearly 14 points per game and shooting 43 percent from the 3-point line this season.



He’s also unapologetically himself.

“Jared is one of one,” sophomore Kyle Filipowski said.



And he’s unique in ways he knows make some people uncomfortable, particularly the sector of society that has more rigid and perhaps outdated views of what masculinity looks like or how a star athlete is supposed to present himself in public.



In a TikTok video he posted earlier this week where he’s in the middle of painting his nails blue and white — it’s actually a clever ad for Sally Hansen nail polish — McCain looks at the camera with a sly smile and says: “Sorry if that offends you guys.”
