Deion Sander’s Daughter to Play Bikini Basketball
Deion Sanders was a sports superstar himself, so when his daughter Deiondra decided to sign up for the upstart Bikini Basketball League he wasn’t really surprised.
However, Deion is a father first and foremost and Deiondra said that he wasn’t thrilled by the idea in the beginning. Although Deion was well known for his flamboyant ways, gold chains and crazy touch down dances, during his pro football career; the idea of his daughter playing basketball in a bikini wasn’t a picture he wanted to see.
According to the BIKINI BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION website:
The Bikini Basketball Association (BBA) is an exciting new innovative women’s sports association. The BBA is a United States based women’s basketball association for beautiful athletic women. The association will begin play this summer on June 1, 2013. There are six teams in the BBA, the Atlanta Peaches, Miami Spice, Orlando Lady Cats, Minnesota Mist, Illinois Heart, and Philadelphia Diamonds. Women were selected based on athleticism, personality, as well as beauty. The combination of these traits will help the BBA athletes stand out in their respective communities. Each team will feature between 14 to 21 talented female athletes on their rosters. Prepare for one of the sexiest and most exciting new associations to “TAKE THE WORLD BY STORM”, get ready for the Bikini Basketball Association
After seeing a photograph of the uniform the girls would be wearing Deion feels a little bit better. Instead of bikinis, the team wears shorts and tank tops on the court.
In a radio interview, Deiondra said:
“My dad was kind of upset, but that’s like any parent who just sees bikini league. 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.”
Deiondra also had something to say about a football league that dresses in lingerie for their games on the field. She said that there were huge differences between the two leagues and that the other league weren’t really football players. Deiondra will be playing for the Atlanta Peaches and thinks that it’s also a wise career move.
