The Las Vegas Aces are off to a shaky start given the expectations they entered the season with after trading for Cambage. I wouldn't hit the panic button just yet though. The Atlanta Dream are just awful to start the year, as this team has serious scoring issues and hasn't played a lick of defense. The Dream would be winless this season if it weren't for the Dallas Wings completely falling apart in the fourth quarter of their season opener. I want no part of the Dream right now. I'll gladly lay the bucket with the Aces.
