Dennis Rodman to Start a Stripper Basketball League

by Peter Walsh / @goinginsquad

You can always count on Dennis Rodman for a story and this may be his most ridiculous one yet. Dennis Rodman has founded a stripper basketball league. Yes, you read that correctly, a stripper basketball league. Rodman has linked with Heaquarter’s Gentlemen’s Club, who will sponsor the first (and only) team in the league. He held a press conference earlier today at Headquarter’s in Manhattan and revealed his plans:

You look at Playboy, you look at the mansion in L.A., you look at Hugh Hefner he’s been doing this for almost 80 years…It’s been entertainment, it’s been very clean, it’s been very subdued. But this right here, this has never been done before…These girls are not just entertainers as far as just coming into adult venues just to take their clothes off, they have an interest to entertain in different areas. What’s the best way to do it? How about a basketball game?…These girls are very beautiful and have other talents…My friends that own the Cirque De Soleil in Vegas, the director said that he is going to give me a lot of his creativity knowledge wise to do a lot of halftime shows–people coming from the ceilings, people doing a lot of stuff around the videos. There’s going to be a lot of things going on besides the girls just going up and down the court…They’ll probably be body painted and have tassels on, it’s not going to be raunchy, it’s going to be very clean and elegant…It’s going to be very tastefully done…”Why is Dennis Rodman doing this kind of thing? Why doesn’t he go to the D-League and coach there?” That’s not my game, I can’t coach a bunch of knuckleheads. I can’t coach a bunch of guys who won’t listen to what I’m saying. These girls here, I don’t run these girls here, these girls have their own independent minds, it will be good for their careers…The court’s not going to be 95 feet, it’s only going to be 55 feet, the rims are only going to be eight feet…It’s only going to last 60 minutes with time running and we’re going to have entertainers and girls dancing during timeouts. It’s going to be a lot of entertaining…It’ll be fun.

No date has been scheduled for the first game. Rodman and Headquarter’s are in discussion with Rick’s Cabaret in New York and Sapphire in Vegas for competition, and proceeds will go to charities for some of the events. Stay tuned.

    Why post this slam..? Seriously though this is disrespectful towards basketball & this makes you guys look like scums for acknowledging something so ignorant. Thought this site was for basketball not where to find topless girls shooting air balls.

  • Airnest

    YES! Rodman is the man.

    ^^ I think the 2 comments above kind of represent the entire spectrum of responses to this article. LOL

  • http://www.nba.com Red

  • Rainman

    Im no Chris Bosh, but i approve this message

  • Mike Mihalow

    Just go away, Rodman.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    I like naked chicks. I like basketball. I have no interest in this. Who’s this marketed for?

  • MikeC.

    @Lake – I thought the same thing. If the ladies are playing the right way, they’re going to get all sweaty and greasy. But not in a good way.

  • ripslam

    @LakeShow – the difference is that this is not basketball.

  • Rainman

    Shout out to greasy chicks all over the world

  • http://www.borntocompete.com Money$hot

    I hope they have a league pass, if they do, sign me up!

    real man of genius…?
    it’s a league with one team. not sure what kind of basketball game can be played when it’s 5 on 0.

  • Groves

    What LakeShow said

  • Shecky Shabazz

    Is Spud Webb going to coach one of the teams or will he take on an assistant commissioner role?

  • burnt_chicken

    i fully appreciate Red as the moral compass here. heh. “scums”.

  • http://www.nba.com Red

    Lol, I’m just saying I ain’t trying to act like a typical dude as though liking ignorant stuff like this makes me more of a man. Like, ain’t nobody comment on the wilt, 100 special but we did on this.

  • http://www.nba.com VanCityBBall

    speaking of wilts 100… what was the final score of that game?

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    It’s not the love of money that is the root of all evil.
    It is the LACK of money that is the root of all evil.

  • MikeC.

    @Red – nobody comments on Wilt’s 100-drop because we can’t even imagine doing that ourselves. That’s hallowed ground. Now, banging a greasy stripper? That’s something any man with $50 can swing. It’s just more realistic.

  • http://slamonline.com datkid

    ok no but this should happen tho. it’s awesome.

  • juror_number_14

    And if Rodman pays for his employee’s contraception and the employee has sex…… We get to see the video!!!

  • EJ

    Call me sexist, but FU(K YEAH!!!

  • http://www.nba.com Red

    LOL@more realistic Ok I’ll now exit you guys won well played.

  • jthc

    at least they won’t have to hire anyone else for halftime entertainment

  • jthc

    Halftime contest: shoot a free-throw while getting a lap dance

  • http://www.andywhitby.com Andy Whitby

    What if a stripper scores 100, will that make everybody happy ?

  • Dan

    i cant wait for this thing to go down. and please, no offense but… cant you prude religious bores just shut up on subjects like e.g. joy, science, booty because you just dont know anything about it lol

  • KidCongo

    Boss movements right here

  • Sparker

    “These girls here, I don’t run these girls here…” Interesting that Dennis feels obliged to point out that he is not, in fact, a pimp.

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/tray24 T-Ray

    I’m good with it if the girls are like the ones in the football league. If they look like those $2 discount strippers then no deal. And whoever commented saying halftime contest is a shot with a lap dance I’ll shoot with no hands!

  • bike

    I hope there will be a lot of boxing out.

  • bdogg

    lingerie basketball…def pass. love chicks…love hoops…easy pass…thanks ja kidd!

  • Kilo

    Great Idea! Big Ups to Rodman

  • Steven L

    There’s going to be a lot of bouncing, jiggling, and giggidys.
