Miranda Kerr (Splash News)

Miranda Kerr is a certified baller!

The Australian supermodel wore an unusual getup for a photo shoot Thursday in New York City. Instead of her typical feminine couture gowns -- or barely-there slinky lingerie outfits -- the 30-year-old showed a sporty side in high-fashion … basketball gear.

The soon-to-be ex-Victoria's Secret Angel channeled her inner LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony for the shoot. The main pieces she wore were gold short shorts, which showed off her killer legs, and a red and gold top. But truly the best bits of the outfit were the red, white, and blue sweatband (worn more like a crown than to collect forehead sweat), red kneepads, and blue platform sneakers. None of it was exactly regulation wear!

While striking a pose, Kerr gamely tried her hand at a little dribbling and tossed the ball in the air … though it's not likely the NBA, which is in the middle of its playoffs, will come calling.

And that's OK because Kerr has a full schedule anyway. The wife of Orlando Bloom -- and mother of 2-year-old Flynn -- has some new business ventures underway following her announcement that she's not renewing her contract with Victoria's Secret. (She'll still walk in the label's annual fashion show this fall.)

"It's a natural evolution," she told the Sydney Morning Herald about hanging up her wings to focus on new entrepreneurial opportunities. "The thing is, I've been modeling since I was 13. I'm now entering a new phase in my life. I have felt this coming since my son was born and, after I became a mother, I realized I needed to prioritize my time."

Well, we're glad she prioritized her time for this shoot because it kind of made our day.
