There’s no doubt that LeBron James is one of the greatest athletes the NBA has ever seen, as through 15 years of basketball, James has dominated the competition year in and year out with no signs of slowing down.
Even if LeBron may not win the MVP award or NBA Finals every single year, he’s easily in contention for both every year since 2011, which is insane consistency given how many years he’s played in the league thus far.
On the other hand, when it comes to college football, almost no team in the nation compares to the likes of the Alabama Crimson Tide, who recently won their sixth National Championship under Nick Saban with an OT victory over Georgia.
Just like LeBron, Bama is in the conversation to take out the National Championship almost every season it seems, so it comes as no surprise that both LeBron and Nick Saban’s success is somehow connected.
In fact, both James’ and Saban’s are eerily similar when it comes to championships. Since 2012, whenever Alabama wins the national title, LeBron seems to win the NBA championship, no matter what team he’s on.

The opposite is also the same: Whenever Saban and the Crimson Tide doesn’t happen to win the national championship, LeBron loses in the NBA Finals.
With Alabama winning the title again this year over Georgia, history says that LeBron and the Cavs are now a shoo-in to win the NBA title this season… Or perhaps the streak gets broken, who knows?
