Spud Webb

Coaching Stripper Hoops

Was Just a JOKE!!

Former NBA great Spud Webb is pulling out of stripper basketball -- and, oddly, his rep says the whole head coaching gig was merely an "ill-fated attempt at humor."

In a statement, Spud's rep says ... "Contrary to reports, Spud Webb will not be coaching the Rick's Cabaret/New York Stripper Basketball Team." The rep adds the announcement was taken out of context.

We'll say this ... Spud didn't seem like he was joking when we shot his "announcement" -- at Rick's Cabaret -- with his new strippers team.

The team members tell us, "We sadly accept Spud's resignation, and we wish him the best."

A new coach will be named soon.

It's sad that none of these "celebrities" ever mean what they say one they find out the public don't like what they said.

of course he was kidding. Just because he had to explain cause some retards took him serious, doesn't make HIM look stupid. Homeboy has ALWAYS loved the strip Clubs. He was always at the Cheetah in Atlanta back in the early 90's.Very nice and respectful too!
