LeBron Made Nick Saban & Alabama Actually Change The Name Of Their Barbershop Show
You’ve all just witnessed the power of LeBron James.
Earlier this week, a defiant Nick Saban told reporters that he had no plans of changing the name of his barbershop show after LeBron and his associates threw a copyright complaint their way.
“I think LeBron James is a great player,” the coach said. “There’s been at least 20 barbershop-type things I’ve seen. I didn’t even know he had one. I’m sorry anybody could be offended by something we were just trying to have fun with. I enjoyed it and we’re going to continue to do it.”
On the same day, LeBron made it crystal clear to the Alabama head coach that he would be “damned if I’ll allow someone to use our platform or try to do the same thing we’re doing and just think it’s OK.” He went on to state that he would let his lawyers figure it out.
Something clearly must’ve happened behind the scenes because Alabama caved to the threat and changed the name of their show from “Shop Talk” to “Bama Cuts.”
No explanation was given, but it was clear it had everything to do with LeBron James. The Cleveland Cavaliers star has a web show “The Shop” that started last summer.
