You will see some amazing ball movement, tough finishes, hard-nosed defense, and a lot more. The thing is that these women have been coached by superstar talents and have built their game rigorously since their school days.

Aces had an outstanding outing versus the Mercury to begin the season and beat them 106:88 as three players scored at least 20 points.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Two contenders?

What makes Aces special? They look like the most athletic team and I believe they may end up at least in the top three teams in terms of pace. They can run the floor well, and they can play both physical and speedy types of games. The growth in Kelsey Plum’s game makes them a serious contender while their experience can’t be taken lightly. A’ja Wilson is a rock, Jackie Young and Dearica Hamby have motor while the experience of Chelsea Gray will be handy. The bench does bring some question marks.

The Storm has a lot of experience too. They can be effective in both open-court game and half-court style. Last season, they had some issues closing out games and when Breanna Stewart got injured, their campaign was a wrap. Talking about Stewart, she remains one of the best players in the league while the guard duo of Loyd and Bird is a force. Ezi Magbebor’s play can determine a lot while the bench consists of a bunch of veteran players. The Storm surely looks like a championship contender.
