Stephen A. Smith: Bayless 'Not Far From Cuckoo's Nest'

ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith finally confirmed what everyone already concluded about ESPN personality Skip Bayless. No, not that he’s a shifty contrarian with no firm beliefs; rather, that he’s basically loco.

During an interview with Bruce Bankoff of Big Lead Sports, Smith said of Bayless, I have a great deal of respect for him. I’ve known him for 17 years. He does his homework. He has his bully pulpit on ESPN 2. And he is not afraid to take on anyone face to face. I’ve been on that show and taken him on. But I have to tell you, he’s crazy. He has his opinions and he means what he says. But he’s not too far from the cuckoo’s nest. That boy is crazy.”
