NBA Lockout? Who Cares When You Have the Lingerie Basketball League
There are four LBL teams, but all of them are located in LA. There are the Beauties, Divas, Glam, and Starlets. The league's motto is, “Where Beauty Meets Hardwood.” Get it? They're saying you'll pop a boner if you watch girls in their underwear prance about and play basketball. Well who am I to argue.
The LBL has some unique rules, there's something called, “The Red Light Special,” where a player has 60 seconds to score a bonus point (must be big TLC fans). Other LBL rules include:
- 35 second shot clock.
- No whistle side lines out of bounds.
- 10 second backcourt violation.
- No defensive 3 seconds.
- High school 3-point line.
- Two 20 minute halves.
- Two full and two 20 second time outs per half.
- A fight for possession of the ball results in an actual jump ball between the two girls.
- If needed, each game is alloted 3 minutes of overtime.
The league already has some star power, (No not Dennis Rodman) one of their players is 1994 Playboy Playmate of the Year, Jenny McCarthy's sister JoJo. Jenny took her son Evan to go see his aunt play basketball in her bra and panties. Nothing like seeing your aunt's naughty bits jiggle around in her skivvies. JoJo was drafted in the fifth round of the 1998 ABL draft by the Chicago Condors, but the league went out of business in December 1998 because it couldn't compete with the WNBA (That might be the saddest sentence I've ever seen.)
They're not all super models, but it's definitely a notch or five above the WNBA talent. Here is a photo gallery of all the players that will ball in their panties for those lucky enough to get tickets to this up and coming league. My early pick for MVP is Ami Haruna.
James Naismith must be creaming in his peach basket.
