A handful of racy photographs of the Sacramento Kings dancers drinking alcohol and posing in G-strings have surfaced on the Internet, the Sacramento Bee reports.
The images, which have been posted on the sports blog WithLeather.com under a blog entry titled "Sacramento Kings Dancers Are Awesome," show the girls drinking and posing in various states of undress.
"The photos of Sacramento Kings Dance Team members circulating on the Internet were published without the knowledge or permission of the Dance Team members or the Sacramento Kings, and they do not adhere to the principles and values of the Sacramento Kings organization," the Kings said in a statement to The Bee.
WithLeather.com blogger Matt Ufford called his posting of the photos a "catch-22."
"If I help distribute these photos to the masses, then the fun dancers might get kicked off the squad and/or stop sharing their sexy photos, which could lead to a world in which naughty cheerleaders are restricted to fictional porn fantasies," he wrote.
"But then if I don't share the pictures then nobody gets to enjoy them, and what's the point of that?"
