WATCH: ESPN's Maria Taylor, who Nick Saban criticized earlier this year, plays basketball with him
Nick Saban’s interaction with Maria Taylor went viral earlier this year.
Following Alabama’s blowout win over Louisville, Taylor interviewed Saban on the field, further asking him about the quarterback situation. Saban was tired of hearing questions about his quarterbacks, and he unleashed on Taylor. Saban called immediately after the incident and apologized to the ESPN reporter.
Things blew over quickly.
In a new spot for ESPN, Taylor went to Tuscaloosa to play Nick Saban in GOAT on the hardwood, and ultra-competitive Saban came out with the victory.
