The Tulsa Shock  have signed former Oklahoma Sooners star Courtney Paris.

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.

In case you missed it, NBA star Ron Artest has changed his name to Metta World Peace.

The Los Angeles Lakers forward was ejected from Sunday’s double overtime win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, 114-106.

World Peace has been suspended for seven games by the NBA for swinging an elbow that hit the head of Oklahoma City guard James Harden in Sunday’s nationally-televised game.

The controversial World Peace will miss the Lakers’ regular-season finale on Thursday at Sacramento and their first six playoff games, the NBA announced on Tuesday. He will be forfeiting some money as well, $347,849.

The latest suspension marks the 10th time since 2003 that World Peace has been suspended by the NBA.

With the National Football League trying to end its lockout and get training camps and preseason games underway, the United Football League has announced that it will be pushing back the start of its season from August to September.

The schedule switch does not help the UFL which has lost more than $100 million in the first two years of its existence.

The UFL has teams in Omaha, Hartford, Norfolk, Las Vegas and Sacramento.

The league had hoped to gain viewers and fans during the NFL lockout, by scheduling early-season games on Sundays.

The Minnesota Timberwolves fired Kurt Rambis on Tuesday, ending more than three months of rumors and speculation surrounding the coach of the NBA’s worst team in 2010-2011.

Rambis could never get the T-wolves going in two years. He had a record of 32-132, which breaks down to 15-67 in 2009-2010 and 17-65 in 2010-2011. Not enough progress for David Khan, President of Basketball operations to keep him on as head coach.

Rambis had a 4-year contract and Minnesota will have to pay him the remaining two years worth $4 million on the deal.

The 53-year-old Rambis won four NBA titles while playing with the Los Angeles Lakers. He also played with Charlotte, Phoenix and Sacramento.

Ron Artest at one time used to be known as one of the bad boys of the NBA. But in his stints in Houston and Los Angeles, he has been on his best behavior.

The Lakers forward has been rewarded with the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award which is presented annually by the Professional Basketball Writers Association.

A product of St. John’s University, the small forward has also played with Chicago, Indiana and Sacramento in the NBA.
