Marion Jones will debut with Tulsa Shock

Marion Jones, 34, will resume her athletics career Saturday night when she makes her debut with the Tulsa Shock, the WNBA franchise that moved out of Detroit in the off-season. Known for her triumphs as a track sprinter at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and later for having her five medals taken away for using steroids, she's returning to basketball after more than 10 years away from the game.
