Spud Webb Set To Coach Stripper Basketball Team

Spud Webb will heading back to the hard-court, however, it won’t be with the NBA.  Instead, the 5-foot-7 former dunk champion has been hired to coach the Rick’s Cabaret/New York Stripper Basketball Team for the upcoming inaugural season of the Rick’s Basketball Association.

In the wake of the potential loss of the NBA season, the people at Rick’s Cabaret International, Inc., decided to create a league of their own, pitting women from their gentlemen’s clubs around the United States against one another in an attempt to fill the void left by the NBA lockout.  The NBA players and owners have since come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement, and their 2011-12 season is expected to begin on Christmas Day.  However, that news hasn’t stopped the girls at Rick’s from continuing to train for their league’s debut.

The ladies probably aren’t the only ones looking forward to the start of Rick’s Basketball Association.  After all, if it is anywhere close to as entertaining as the Lingerie Football League, it’ll have my attention.  I’m sure Spud feels the same way.  And I’m sure the opportunity to be in the change room with the ladies didn’t hurt his chances of coaching them either.
