Half Time Entertainment: The Hottest Dance Squads of the NBA
This Article Courtesy Of Rip City Report
For the record, they may not be the NFL's cheerleaders, but these ladies are vastly underrated. As for the spark they provide for their teams, it is little to none.
But who cares?
These ladies aren't dancing for the team, they are dancing for you.
So buckle up, put on your leg warmers, and let's dance...
Well, at least read.

When you think of Boston, you don't tend to think about their dancers.
Your imagination tends to take you the route of championships and basketball greatness, but I implore you to give these girls a chance, because they really do have something great going on with their dancing.
The Nets dancers may be the only thing that is going well for their basketball franchise in recent years, and I can guarantee it IS the only thing going well in this particular season.
In light of the Olympics, I give these dancers a score of 9.199 in terms of hotness.
Even if the Knicks fail to snag a big name free agent this June, I can guarantee that the fans will have something else to look forward to...maybe they'll be able to find something to cheer for on the beaches.
Nothing gets you on a Hottest Dancer list quicker than a bikini photo. It goes against all common sense though, doesn't it?
Less is more, and this may be the only time that less is actually more.
Raptors Dance Pak
Still sorta bitter about the Canadians and the Hockey Final in the Olympics, and you should be, too.
But here is something to cheer you up.
Nothing does that better than a half naked lady.
You don't know how many pictures I went through to find a picture of the actual Chicago Bulls dancers.
Apparently there is a Toy called "Luvables"...who knew?
Well no one cares about the toys, but you do care about these lovely ladies.
Cavaliers fans, cheer up.
You have dancers. They are hot and in bikinis.
Don't worry about LeBron, he's going to leave anyway.
Focus on something that is appealing, like the picture shown to you left.
I chuckled when I read the name: "Pacemates", I remembered thinking, "Is that really what they call themselves?"
A little too close to pacemaker for me... unless that's the kind of crowd they are trying to draw in?
I guess we'll never know.
Pistons' Automotion Dancers
The girl above just doesn't look happy, and I don't blame her.
Who would want to cheer for a basement eastern conference team, a team that resides in a cold and...well cold city, and for a city that is without a lot of other jobs.
But I'll tell you what she does look like.
She looks like a hot chick, a hot dancer to be more precise, and that's why we're here.
Bucks' Energee Dance Team
If Brandon Jennings didn't inject the city with energy, the Energee dancers sure will.
Well unless they don't care.
Hawks' A-Town Dancers
Dancers in bikinis win every time.
End of story.
Although the Bobcats are now owned by the best basketball player to ever play the game, don't expect anything more from this dance crew.
"Why?" you ask.
Because they are already doing an excellent job.
I thought that the Heat Dancers would have a more creative name. Maybe something that insinuates their hotness.
I guess the Heat Organization has their marketing department on hold for the summer of 2010.
But still, you'd think that the dancers would be in charge of their own name.
The Magic Dancers...Sounds like something out of a show in Vegas.
But none the less, these dancers fit their role, and if I may add, they are pretty darn good lookin', too.
Wizards Dance Team
I think that lying on your back is one of the better poses to do if you are a woman.
Would you disagree?
Not a big fan of these dancers.
They just seem dull and colorless; they don't really have anything that catches your eye and draws your attention in.
That's sarcasm by the way.
If their cotton candy colors didn't draw you in, the dancers may have.
Rocket Power Dancers
Possibly the worst name for a dance team... Well, not the worst, but it is definitely a bad name.
Searching for a picture of these ladies meant digging through hundreds of Rocket Power (the Nickelodeon cartoon) pictures.
I get the effort, really I do.
But make the name about spirit or something...not a children's cartoon.
Pretty ladies though, definitely helps to include a nurse fantasy in one of your pictures.
Grizzlies Dance Team
The Grizzlies are within shouting distance of the playoff race and if they play their cards right, they will be part of the party.
And that is what the franchise needs, some national media attention.
But it wouldn't hurt to give these ladies some media attention as well.
Honey Bees are just that...sweet.
Although the franchise has gone through some major shake ups throughout the past 10 years, the Honeybees name has stayed true.
Spurs' Silver Dancers
Gorgeous Ladies, although not too much creativity took place when naming themselves.
Another good pose, three young women looking great, pushing in really close while in skimpy outfits.
If only they were in bikinis...
Timberwolves Dance Team
When the Timberwolves drafted Kevin Love, I was thinking maybe he would be the source of energy...but no, it didn't happen that way.
Instead, they are now relying on these ladies to provide the "Lovin'" that Love wasn't able to provide.
The Blazers have gone through hell and back over the past 10 years and at one point were the worst team in the NBA.
But they always had a group of fans that never wavered, even if they were employed by the franchise.
Another group of lovely ladies.
When you think of the Thunder you think, young, athletic, and promising.
Durantula and crew are overachieving this season, but that's not to say that the dancers are the same.
Energy is a big part of the home court advantage and these girls are providing just that.
Jazz dancers...just an awesome name.
But instead of rockin' out to jazz, these dancers dance to a different tune, that of the modern age hip-hop.
I wonder what they believe in?
I think I see a playoffs line at the bottom there...hmm, I wonder if they'd like to retract that statement, because there's not a lot of hope surrounding the Golden State franchise.
Clippers' Spirit Dance Team
It would be a travesty if the Clippers or the Lakers didn't have good looking dancers.
Warm weather, beaches, palm trees, the works.
They have everything that draws people in...except a good basketball team.
I always compare the Lakers girls to the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.
They are truly the most recognizable group in the league. But is it because of their past and present success, or is it just because the are gorgeous?
Another city that has the perfect environment for the young crowd.
The run-and-gun suns have more than just tempo up their sleeve, they have some steaming hot dancers.
Best of luck to the franchise within the coming months.
Kings Dance Team
Apparently the Kings dance team gets into a lot of trouble at parties.
You Google "Kings dance team" and you tell me what you come up with.
Booze + gorgeous women + cameras = either a good time or some embarrassing event(s).
