Plenty of Colorado sports fans know ESPN's Skip Bayless as an idiot if only for his advocacy of Tim Tebow as an NFL quarterback even when he wasn't guiding the Broncos to still-inexplicable victories. But Bayless took his usual meatheadedness to heretofore unforeseen levels when he recently suggested during an episode of ESPN's First Take, as seen in a clip on view below, that the reputation of the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant had actually been enhanced by the sexual-assault allegation made against him in Eagle County, Colorado back in 2003. Really.
