Who does Nick Saban admire? On Monday night, before the inaugural Nick Saban Legacy Award ceremony in Birmingham, he answered the question...
“Well, look. Anybody in any profession who has had a tremendous amount of success, I have an admiration for that because I know how difficult it is,” Saban began. “I don’t care if it’s in the music industry and you’re the Eagles or Michael Jackson or the Rolling Stones. Those people have been successful for a long, long time. Elton John. So I admire that.
“I admire Kobe Bryant. I admire Michael Jordan — guys who were dominant for a long, long time and they did it on a very consistent basis because some people can be dominant for a little while, but it takes a special someone because it’s not really human nature to try to be the best you can be. It’s human nature to survive.”
