Skip Bayless Probably Regrets Saying That Kobe's Rape Trial Gave Him Marketing 'Sizzle'
October 20 / Jake O'Donnell / SportsGrid
For the record, Skip, the reason Kobe didn't sell sneakers with Adidas had more to do with the fact that the sneakers he wore were modeled after NYC taxis for some reason and weighed as much as work boots. It was because they were ugly -- not because he didn't have an "edge" to his persona.
As a general rule, rape trials don't sell sneakers. Also, Kobe lost endorsement deals with Sprite and McDonald's at the time, so, ya know, that's probably an indication Skip's a little off base here. ESPN is on a mission to smear this dude, so expect more ridiculous Kobe talk going forward.
