Illustration for article titled Report: NBA Bans Sexy-Ass Songs From German Cheerleaders Routine

German basketball club Alba Berlin will take on the San Antonio Spurs in an exhibition game Wednesday, but their cheerleaders will be working at half-speed. The NBA apparently nixed three songs from Alba Berlin's squad's routine, on account of the tracks being too sexy, according to German tabloid B.Z.

From the Google Translated report:

The Alba Dancers, the Berlin Cheerleader must, on three of the four songs that they dance in game interruptions, renounce, because in the context of the songs is too much sex. At least for the taste of NBA bosses. Affected are two songs by rapper T-Pain, "Shirt Off" and "Sex, Love and Rock 'n' Roll", as well as Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack".

Even though the game's being played in Germany, the league gets what it wants, including regulation of songs that are too sexy.
