Marion Jones Makes Her Debut

In case you somehow missed it, the WNBA season kicked off today with five games. The biggest news of the day for casual fans? Marion Jones, disgraced sprinter and convicted criminal, made her regular season WNBA debut, posting no stats in a little over three minutes of play. Her team, the Tulsa Shock, formerly the Detroit Shock, dropped a close game to the Minnesota Lynx. After being profiled in NYT’s Magazine, there was no guarantee that Jones was even going to make the final roster. She’ll remain one of the more interesting story lines in Tulsa this year, along with her coach, former NCAA champ Nolan Richardson.

    can’t wait for her to finish a fast break.

    Her debut was lackluster, but she did only get 3 minutes of play. I didn’t enjoy this game, especially after watching a more entertaining game imo earlier today with PHX vs LA. If she gets more minutes we might see something special out of her on the court.

    Even if the Queen was making her WNBA debut, it would still not entice me to watch a game

    Wow, the Shock moved to Tulsa? Run Marion, run.

    She looks like Juwanna Mann, too bad she doesnt play like him.

    Why did the Shock move from Detroit?

    When Detroit owner Bill Richardson died, his widow decided to dump the Shock. They were losing money, no question, as the combination of Detroit’s economy and an aging team wasn’t a good one.
