Bikini Basketball League…For the Basketball Enthusiast or Sexiest Display?

If you thought the Lingerie Football League was something, well get ready for the Bikini Basketball League. You heard me right – The Bikini Basketball League, and trust me it is what you think, women in bikinis playing basketball. If you head over to the league’s website it describes the league as a “league is for Sexy Athletic Ladies from around the world”. This isn’t something that’s new, the concept has been around since 2011 and was even rumored to have basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman involved. So far the league has six teams…Chicago Desire, Orlando LadyCats, Miami Spice, Los Angeles Ice, New York Knockouts, Hollywood Hotties and Atlanta Fleet Angels. With the tremendous success of the Lingerie Football League, the bikini wearing basketball players maybe not too off. Now just because I think it might be somewhat successful, I still believe that it’s a horrible displace that does nothing but continue to objectify women and mock the value that they bring to sports. It’s amazing how women playing football in lingerie and basketball in bikinis can continue to get funding to develop their leagues, but other leagues of football playing women and girls’ college programs continue to beg for needed dollars. According to the website, action will begin in 36 days, so get ready. Your Jersey Girlfriend, Marcelle English

  1. WOW! I didn’t know about the bikini basketball league. I can understand and support the LFL. There isn’t a well-funded league for women who really want to play football but the WNBA has been in place for 15 years. Does sex have to sell everything? I don’t think this league will last long.
