Nick Saban and the rest of the Alabama football program haven’t exactly been seeing eye-to-eye with NBA star LeBron James lately. Both parties have been in a dispute regarding the Tide’s new show called Bama Cuts.
The headlines back and forth proves the difference of opinion between the sides. But, as ESPN pointed out on Sunday, the sides may have more in common than just ideas for barbershop shows:

That’s a pretty impressive sample size. Six consecutive years where Alabama’s success — or lack thereof — has aligned perfectly with James’ success.
Is there some sort of correlation between the two? Probably not, but it’s still interesting to see as it continues to unfold each year.
James and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers will be taking on the winner of Game 7 of the Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, which will be played Monday night. There will, yet again, be an NBA title on the line.
Does the streak continue for a seventh straight year? Do Alabama fans even want to see that streak continue after the actions of James following the release of Bama Cuts?
