While most of America was gripped by the presidential election, sports fans were debating whether the Dallas Mavericks dancers' new costumes were too racy.

SportsGrid said after the game against the Portland Trail Blazers the dancers are "pretty much naked" and the Daily Mail observed the costumes "could raise some eyebrows."

Stargazing said "we think they're more a crime against fashion than decency."

And the Huffington Post sniffed: "They're more like leftover Britney Spears' tour costumes from 2003."
