Tulsa Shock 2015

2015 - Shock on to Dallas

The 2015 Shock started off well, with the team starting 10–7, including a 6–1 record at the BOK Center. However, in June, point guard Skylar Diggins suffered a knee injury and missed the rest of the season. On July 20, 2015, majority owner Bill Cameron shocked not just fans in Tulsa, but the WNBA itself as he announced he will move the team to Dallas. The following day, minority owner Stuart Price filed suit against Cameron in a failed attempt to keep the team in Tulsa.

On July 23, 2015, WNBA League owners unanimously approved Tulsa Shock’s relocation to Dallas-Fort Worth. The last regular-season home game for the Shock in Tulsa was September 13 against Phoenix. While the Shock did make the playoffs, they were still young and were swept in 2 straight by the same Phoenix squad. The new home arena for the Shock in DFW is the College Park Center at UT Arlington, also home to the UT Arlington Mavericks.

On November 2, 2015, the team name was officially changed to the Dallas Wings. The name stems from the famous Mobil Oil Co. “Flying Horse” atop of a historic downtown Dallas building. Also, it is a similar mascot to its local NBA team the Dallas Mavericks.
