Of course our friends at Rick’s Cabaret are going through with this Stripper Basketball League plan that was announced a few weeks ago when the NBA was still locked out. And they’ve even pulled a major name in the basketball world to be head coach of the Rick’s New York franchise. None other than Spud Webb has agreed to lend his basketball expertise to strippers who are used to posting up on poles instead of opponents. This should be interesting.
According to the Rick’s Stripper Basketball League press officers:
Rick’s Cabaret introduced Webb to the media at a news conference at the New York City club today, at which he put his team through a practice session in front of the stage where they normally dance. The New York team is expected to play games shortly against the Minneapolis Downtown Cabaret and Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami.
“These ladies are fabulous and have obvious talents and skills. I can’t think of a better way to entertain long-suffering NBA fans,” Webb said.
“He’s a hero to people of all sizes and he shows that anyone can accomplish anything,” said Gianna, a point guard on the New York team. “Of course we are happy the NBA is coming back in December–they are some of our best customers. We’ll play ‘til the NBA season starts because our fans and customers want it.”
Finally, a sport that combines our love of dark lighting and a ball. Now we just have to figure out how to get Rick’s to fly us to Miami for those games.
