I’ve seen them all dating back to 1986 … many, many good Alabama basketball teams.
But this is the best Alabama basketball team I’ve ever seen. Absolutely, no question.

I give Alabama a hard time, but I have to congratulate them on such a fast and smooth transition from being a football school to a basketball school. That is not easy
