Legendary footballer Deion Sanders isn't happy that his daughter just joined the Bikini Basketball League, playing alongside women who have played in the WNBA and overseas. While they don't actually play in bikinis, and actually don shorts and sports bras, Deion still isn't pleased about his daughter's decision.
Deiondra talked to Jeff Sammut of 590 The Fan in Toronto, revealing "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, who will be repping the Atlanta Peaches, also took some time to trash talk the Bikini Football League, claiming the basketball league has more talent.
"I just think that it's a lot different because we actually do have players, real basketball players, that actually have played in the WNBA before. So I think that this will make a difference because people are really gonna see real-life hoopers. They just look good while doing it."
