The Las Vegas Aces, the first team in the WNBA to repeat as champions in 21 years, stand as a testament to resilience and determination. They are not just a team, but a dynasty in the making. If you don’t agree, you can’t deny the undeniable truth that they are well on their way to becoming one. The Aces’ home opener will soon allow them to pick up where they left off.

The Aces, undoubtedly the most successful team in recent years, have been a force to reckon with in the competition. Their back-to-back championship celebration a few months ago is a testament to their dominance. As they gear up for their season opener, they opened up their shootaround to the media, giving a glimpse of their preparation.

The Aces are set to kick off the 2024 season with a home game, a departure from their previous season when they started on the road. Last year, they traveled to Seattle and triumphed over the Storm with a score of 105-64.

“We earned it,” the two-time WNBA champion head coach said Monday. “To start at home for a few days, so it’s always nice to get a couple of home games to start it and hopefully get off to a good start.”

Hammon is more than right – the Aces’ home opener should be their first game of the year, especially after winning the last two championships. Honestly, they deserved to start the season at home last year. It makes everything easier when it comes to getting the ring ceremony and banner night out of the way.

On Tuesday, the Aces will start their run at a three-peat at home against the Phoenix Mercury, which could be without Brittney Griner.
