Bad luck has seemed to follow Paris in her quest for a pro career.

Paris was the No. 7 overall pick of Sacramento in 2009 but the team folded at the end of the season. The 6-foot-4 daughter of former NFL player, Bubba Paris, was selected in the dispersal draft by Chicago but did not earn a roster spot. In 2011, she signed with the Los Angeles Sparks and was waived three months later. She landed with Atlanta in June 2011 and was waived a few weeks ago.

The Oklahoma program, one of the best in college football has won 7 national titles, 43 conference championships, 44 bowls, 152 All-Americans and 5 Heismans.

Marion Jones waived by Tulsa Shock

The Tulsa Shock of the WNBA, ended their relationship with former track star Marion Jones on Thursday. The action was needed to make room for former Oklahoma Sooners standout Abi Olajuwon.

Former Shock head coach Nolan Richardson gave the 35-year-old Jones a chance to play pro basketball when he offered a chance when her prison sentence had ended.

Jones took advantage of the opportunity and showed some signs of her talents from the days when she played for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels. During her rookie season, she played in 34 games, averaging 3.4 points and 9.4 minutes per game.

This season, Jones basically was a non-factor as the Shock continued to lose games and Richardson’s reluctance to play his starters for most of the game. She averaged less than a point per game in just 14 games.

The Shock were getting hammered on the boards this season and outscored around the rim and they had no choice but to bring in Abi Olajuwon, the daughter of former NBA star Hakeem Olajuwon. Along with rookie star Elizabeth Cambage, Olajuwon will give the Shock a nice inside combo.
