Comparing Alabama football to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls ‘Last Dance’ documentary

Many similarities can be drawn between Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls and Alabama football with Nick Saban.

The Last Dance documentary showed us the heart, fight, passion and determination of Jordan and his teammates to reach six NBA Championships in the 1990’s.

In college football, Saban and the Crimson Tide possesses the same attitude when it comes to contending for national championships. Saban has five titles with Alabama and if not for a few unfortunate situations, he would actually have eight national championships.

The 68-year-old expects to surpass the legendary Paul W. “Bear” Bryant this year and win his seventh title.
