Rumor is Update: It’s Official. Former TU men’s basketball coach Nolan Richardson has been named the coach and general manager of the Detroit Shock. Tulsa is now home to their very own WNBA team. Tens of people in Detroit are distraught over the news.
Take that OKC Thunder!
While I’m not a sports fanatic, I was excited when my friend Juan told me WNBA stood for Women’s Naughty Basketball Association. Turned out to be mistranslation.
Attendance for the WNBA is about 8,000 per game. The BOK Center seats nearly 20,000. Will this be a boon for Tulsa? Probably not. However, what the hell do I know? I don’t watch sports. I take pictures of QuikTrip food and make lists about Tulsa’s Sleaziest Shopping Centers. This is Clark’s area. All I know is if the OKC Thunder played Tulsa Shock, I’d attend that game.
So sports fan, open post time. Please comment. Where I am supposed to stand on this?
