The King of College Football isn’t backing down one bit from the Chosen One NBA King.
Earlier this week, it was reported that LeBron James‘ multimedia company, Uninterrupted, had sent a letter to Alabama’s football program expressing a concern over a possible copyright infringement regarding a series of online videos capturing typical barbershop conversations. The Alabama version, called “Shop Talk,” shows a barbershop-like conversation involving Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban and former Crimson Tide standouts Julio Jones, Eddie Jackson and Ryan Anderson; LeBron’s version, dubbed “The Shop,” had already seen a pair of episodes released prior to UA doing theirs.
Tuesday, Saban was asked about the kerfuffle. In a bold move, Cotton, the head coach stated that he and his university weren’t about to blink.
“There’s been at least 20 barbershop-type things I’ve seen on TV. I didn’t know anybody owned that. I didn’t know [LeBron] had one,” Saban said by way of al.com. “I’m sorry that anybody could [be] offended by something that we were just having fun with. I enjoyed it. And we’re going to continue to do it.”
“I think LeBron James is a great player,” the head coach added of the NBA superstar who also happens to be a huge booster of Ohio State in general and Buckeyes football in particular.
