Bikini Basketball League Newest Addition To America's Obsession With Lingerie Athletics (NSFW PHOTOS)

Fans of lingerie athletics, rejoice: The Bikini Basketball League may be coming to a city near you.

Billing itself as the league "for Sexy Athletic Ladies from around the world," the seven current teams are the Chicago Desire, Orlando LadyCats, Miami Spice, Los Angeles Ice, New York Knockouts, Hollywood Hotties and Atlanta Fleet Angels, according to a BikiniBasketball.com.

According to NBC Sports, the clothing-limited league has been around in concept since 2011, although no games have been played by the seven teams.

Aspiring models and athletes in the Miami area are encouraged to apply for spots on teams like the Spice, although the Miami tryouts, which were originally scheduled for this Saturday, have been postponed due to increased interest.

A team representative recently told the Miami New Times that the tryout would be comprehensive and competitive.

"We are definitely looking for girls that can really play," the rep said. "It is also a bikini league in which the girls will be playing basketball in bikinis, so looking good in a bikini is a must."

Prospective team members will participate in an on-court showcase as well as a videotaped interview.

If history is any indication, however, the league will need more than just attractive women in skimpy outfits to stay afloat.

The fledgling Bikini Hockey League, which hosted a media day recently in Oklahoma, has not done much yet besides parade around its newest "teammates," some of whom did shoot a few pucks for the press.

On the other hand, the Lingerie Football League, which started as a pay-per-view gimmick in 2004, now has both an eastern and western conference of teams, a fantasy league and its own spinoff show on MTV.
