After reports emerged yesterday that ESPN's Skip Bayless had grossly exaggerated his high school basketball career—claiming he started for a state finalist team when his own high school yearbook suggests he averaged just 1.4 points per gameFirst Take panelist and actual basketball star Jalen Rose chose a perfect moment to call Skip out on his boasting.


During a discussion of traditional basketball position roles, Rose prompted Bayless to confirm that yes, he averaged less than two points a game as a senior and indeed he did play on the J.V. team as a junior. While Bayless insisted he'd address the topic in full later in the broadcast, he didn't. Still, it's fun to watch Bayless's ashen-faced admission. [ESPN2]
