When the Tulsa Shock were the Detroit Shock, winning was not a problem.

They were WNBA champions three times and Conference champions four times.

Then they moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2010, and the winning has become tougher.

The Shock were 6-28 in 2010, 3-31 in 2011 and finished sixth in the Western Conference.

The 2011 season saw Tulsa go through two coaches, Nolan Richardson and Teresa Edwards.

The 2012 season is upon us and the team is trying to shake-off the worst record in pro basketball history in the United States.

The Shock has a revamped offense with guard Temeka Johnson and 6’8 Australian Liz Cambage, who is 20 years old.

They will be without leading scorer Tiffany Jackson, who is pregnant. They also own the rights to Deana Nolan, who is taking time off from basketball, but has not played since 2009. sources say she does not want to play in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The new head coach is Gary Kloppenberg, a former assistant coach with the Indiana Fever.
