Nick Saban responds to LeBron James, defends "Shop Talk"

Two shows have aired so far and a third has been filmed.

"You guys know Nick Saban more than I do from a media perspective, not saying personally", James said.

Alabama football's Twitter account last week promoted "Shop Talk", a new web series that featured Saban talking to former Crimson Tide players Julio Jones, Ryan Anderson and Eddie Jackson in a roundtable format inside a barbershop.

If LeBron's lawyers don't get to Saban and company in time, the next episode of "Shop Talk" is set to be released on Wednesday.

The video above was posted by Alabama Football promoting their upcoming series called Shop Talk.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, LeBron James' name and likeness have also been brought into in another multi-million dollar suit against National Basketball Association 2K video game franchise publisher Take Two.

The letter states James' group would rather discuss the matter with the University before "rushing into legal proceedings".

Here is the full letter.

Following Tuesday's win over Toronto in Cleveland, James shot back at Saban's defense of his show.

"I think LeBron James is a great player", Saban said. There's been at least 20 "Barbershop"-type things I've seen on TV". You don't know him personally but you know him more than I do. We will continue tracking the developments of this story. Saban went onto say that he's surprised that anyone can be offended by something with which the Bama folks were just having fun.

"But I built Uninterrupted for a reason and that was for athletes to talk about whatever we want to talk about. The lawyers will figure it out".
