Women in bikinis add interest to anything. It looks like some pioneers are looking to build on that concept by starting up a bikini basketball league.
According to BikiniBasketball.com, the Bikini Basketball Association is coming soon. And by soon, we mean roughly 35 days — at least if the website’s countdown ticker is accurate.
Here’s a brief snapshot of what we’re looking at, via the website, which appears to be very much under construction — perhaps like the league itself.
“The league is for Sexy Athletic Ladies from around the world. We have several teams already Atlanta Fleet Angels, Miami Spice, New York Knockouts, Hollywood Hotties, Orlando Lady Cats, L.A. Ice and Chicago Desire.”
We’re not sure about you guys, but the Miami Spice have the name of a champion who’s destined to follow in the footsteps of the NBA team across town. In any event, though, we’re looking at some tantalizing names.
The Bikini Basketball League or Bikini Basketball Association — it’s a bit unclear due to a discrepancy between the aforementioned website and the league’s Twitter account — is obviously looking to mimic the success of the Lingerie Football League, which appears to have actually done fairly well for itself. Then again, that assumption isn’t based on any quantifiable evidence, but rather the eye ball test.
The league’s Twitter account is already picking up steam, approaching the 10,000-follower mark as of Friday morning. That number will likely climb as more and more web-surfing males become aware of what’s in the works.
According to the Miami New Times, the Spice are working hard to field a contender, with basketball skills also being a necessity.
“This is a competitive basketball league, so we are definitely looking for girls that can really play. It is also a bikini league in which the girls will be playing basketball in bikinis, so looking good in a bikini is a must,” Miami Spice reps reportedly said, adding that “personality, the ability to work with a team, competitiveness, people skills, endurance, drive, and dependability” are also desired qualities.
For those looking to take things a step further and get involved, you’re in luck. The website also offers up this tidbit of information.
“If you are interested in being involved (Players, Owners, Coaches, Sponsors, Photographers, Editors,) Contact us on Twitter or by Email email@example.com.”
See you all there.

I have said that I’m the second-best corner in the NFL. I’m not backing off what I said. I don’t care what anyone else believe. It’s my confidence in myself. I know what I’m capable of when I’m at the top of my game.
