Did Nick Saban Rip Off LeBron James? Judge For Yourself
LeBron James and Nick Saban have something in common.
They are both at the top of their job fields. James, arguably the best basketball player on the planet, and Saban, arguably the greatest college football coach ever.
Do top minds think alike? Or do top minds takes ideas from each other?
According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, James has sent a copyright infringement letter, as well as an intellectual property appropriation to the University of Alabama.
It stems from a preview for "The Shop" shared on Alabama football's official twitter account.
Saban, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and Crimson Tide alum Julio Jones, and Alabama football players are conversing while getting a cut at the Bama Cuts barber shop located in the University's athletic facility.
James and his business team appear to be upset at the likeness the upcoming webisode has to "The Shop", a web based show of James conversing with an array of different individuals, from teammates to pop culture celebrities. The show is a production of "Uninterrupted", a multimedia production company that works with athletes, highlighting their lives away from the game.
A copy of the letter sent to Alabama was obtained by ESPN.
According to McMenamin's report, it opens an invitation to Bama to discuss the situation before hurrying into legal proceedings.
