Deiondra Sanders announced yesterday that she will be joining the Bikini Basketball League, where “Sexy Athletic Ladies” run around flaunting their goods and shooting hoops, SportsRadioInterviews.com said.

Sanders will be playing for the Atlanta Peaches when the Bikini Basketball Association launches officially this spring.

Similar to Wayne Gretzky’s reaction when he learned about his smoking hot daughter’s exploits, Sanders’s Hall of Fame football father was not pleased when he learned of his daughter’s decision to join the league.

“My dad was kind of upset, but that’s like any parent who just sees bikini league,” Sanders told Jeff Sammut on sports radio station Fan 590. “He thought I was gonna be out there in a bikini. He [saw] a picture of our uniform and stuff like that, so I think once he saw that we’re actually covered up a little bit, he wasn’t as concerned.”

For Deoindra Sanders, however, there’s not much worry since players in the Bikini Basketball League are required to wear sports bras and short shorts, rather than bathing suits.

“At first I was a little discouraged but then I found out that we only wear sports bras and spandex,” she said. ”We’re not running down the court in bikinis, which I know many of you wish we was [sic]. So once I found that out I wasn’t discouraged at all.”

According to their official website, the Bikini Basketball League has existed since 2011 after the great success of the Lingerie Football League.

However, according to Sanders, players in the Bikini Basketball League can actually play the sport! #shotsfired

“I just think that it’s a lot different because we actually do have players, real basketball players, that actually have played in the WNBA before,” she said. “So I think that this will make a difference because people are really gonna see real-life hoopers. They just look good while doing it.”

Sanders hopes joining the league will bring her more fame, and in a positive way, unlike the last time she made headlines for a Twitter rant about her stepmother two years ago!

“I like playing basketball so I’m enjoying doing it,” she said. “But eventually I hope it does lead to making my name bigger as a person so I can actually have a voice — a positive voice. Because so far the negative’s [been] portrayed. But I want to have a positive voice. I hope this actually leads to … that.”

The Robin Thicke Twitter Q&A Went Really Bad, Really Fast
