Marion Jones Signs With Shock

According to the WNBA website, Marion Jones has just signed a contract with the Tulsa Shock. Whether she'll make the team is another question but...she's been signed up.

"Watching her go through drills, I saw a player who's perfect for our system," Richardson said. "The one thing I do know is she can run, and any player on my team who wants to be successful needs to be able to run."

Paulball vs. Nolanball? Well, the Shock don't have any players anyway - there are sill some big questions marks about who will be returning to the Shock this season - so unless someone has better suggestions, there's not much grounds for complaint.

The news made the Times, at least. As a matter of fact, it was pretty big news in sports today. Like the WNBA or hate it, people couldn't stop talking about it. I wonder if Donna O used hypnosis on Richardson?

I see your point, but I think you might find some former Detroit Shock fans to complain about it. It's taken Tulsa less than six months to turn a great franchise into an embarrassment. THIS is why some Detroit people were so angry they took the "Shock" name.

If they'd have taken ten minutes to ask some questions and do some research before they bought the Detroit team or had an even remotely competent front office staff now, they wouldn't be in a position where they had to sign the likes of Marion Jones and Iciss Tillis just to fill the roster and sell a few tickets.
