​Marvin Bagley Jr., the father of ​Duke star Marvin Bagley III, might've unknowingly gotten his son into a little bit of hot water. 


The father created shirts with his son's screaming face on the front and began selling them to the Cameron Crazies, Duke basketball's famous cheering section. Well, naturally, a website online called TeeChip Pro copied the t-shirts and started selling them online:

​​The website is selling a bunch of different merchandise with Bagley's face on it. You've got mugs (above), cell phone cases, hoodies, etc.


Now Bagley's father is claiming that the use of his son's likeness for profit is illegal -- which it is without the written consent of the individual. The bad news, however, is that Bagley can still get into trouble for TeeChip Pro's merchandise if he doesn't do something to stop it. That's right, the NCAA can punish him for something he didn't even make.


Per ​NCAA rules“If a student-athlete’s name or picture appears on commercial items (e.g., T-shirts, sweatshirts, serving trays, playing cards, posters) or is used to promote a commercial product sold by an individual or agency without the student-athlete’s knowledge or permission, the student-athlete (or the institution acting on behalf of the student-athlete) is required to take steps to stop such an activity in order to retain his or her eligibility for intercollegiate athletics.”


Thankfully, Duke has taken steps to try and get the product removed, and has been in communication with the NCAA. But really, should it even come to that?


There's nothing wrong with the NCAA and all of its rules though, right?
