With LeBron James and company earning back-to-back world titles, the prophecy he and running mates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh hinted proclaimed when joining forces three years ago is closer to becoming reality.
The Heat have been to the Finals three consecutive seasons and appear set to be the NBA’s premier franchise for the foreseeable future.
If there’s one team that can identify with the realm the Heat entered as repeat champions, it's Nick Saban’s Alabama squad.
The Crimson Tide became college football’s first repeat champion in nearly two decades after throttling previously unbeaten Notre Dame 42-14 in the BCS title game and have captured three crystal footballs in the last four seasons.
Saban’s Tide is taking a sport with a rich history of parity and leaving everybody else in the dust. Considering the way Alabama has reloaded on the recruiting trail, it isn't showing any signs of letting up (h/t ESPN, subscription required).
The Heat and Tide are American sports’ two unquestioned behemoths. Each squad’s dominance is unquestioned, but which is the pound-for-pound champ?
