Cheerleader too chunky for the NBA?

Kelsey Williams criticized for her weight


Oklahoma City Thunder Girl cheerleader Kelsey Williams came under fire about her weight by sports blogger Claire Crawford with CBS Houston.

The post has since been taken down by CBS.


Anna-Megan Raley, who reportedly blogs under the pen-name of Claire Crawford, posted a poll on her article asking people if they thought Williams "looked beautiful" or could use "some tightening up in her mid-section."

She wrote:

The Rockets looked terrible in Game 1, but some say they weren't the only bad-looking people on the court. We're not trying to be ugly. We're just discussing what men like in women, specifically NBA cheerleaders.

She went on to write:

"...if she's comfortable wearing that tiny outfit and dancing for NBA fans, then good for her ... Besides…not every man likes women to be toothpick skinny. I'd say most men prefer a little extra meat on her bones."

Readers were given three choices in her poll "What do you think? Is this chick "too chunky" to be a cheerleader.

  • She has the perfect look to be an NBA cheerleader.
  • She could use some tightening up in her midsection.
  • She has no business wearing that outfit in front of people.
