Deion Sanders’ daughter, Deiondra Sanders, is following in her father’s athletic footsteps, sort of.
Deiondra is joining the Bikini Basketball League, the “Basketball League for Sexy Athletic Women” where women wear sports bras and shorts while they play basketball.
The league includes legit basketball players; including former WNBA stars, overseas players, college athletes, and high school players.
The NFL legend’s daughter explained how her father was upset at first about her decision to join the league but notes that he later changed his mind, she said, “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.”
The league begins June 1, 2013. It has 8 teams, the Atlanta Peaches, Chicago Crave, Los Angeles Ice, Miami Spice, Orlando Lady Cats, Minnesota Mist, Illinois Heart, and Philadelphia Diamonds.
