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.

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.

The last time the Los Angeles Sparks had the number-1 pick in 2008, they selected Tennessee All-American Candace Parker, who won Rookie of the Year and MVP honors her rookie year.

This time the Sparks have beaten the odds and have won the right to draft first again in the 2012 WNBA draft.

Drafting second will be the Chicago Sky, followed by the Minnesota Lynx and the league’s worst team, the Tulsa Shock will pick fourth.

The Sparks had the smallest chance of the four teams with a shot at winning the draft lottery with only 104 of 1,000 chances.
