Add this share

Finally, women’s pro basketball has arrived.

The Atlanta Dream, along with the WNBA, opens the season on Saturday. The Dream does it in Connecticutt at 4 p.m. against the Sun. The game airs on CSS or you can meet like-minded fans at ESPN Zone to watch it there. The home opener is set for May 23 at Philips Arena.

Mark Bradley, a columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, wishes the team well in a piece published today:

A cynic might say the Dream is attempting to fill a niche that doesn’t exist. The women of the Dream aren’t cynics. These players don’t care how many teams have failed or that, after 11 seasons of operation, the WNBA’s average attendance last season was but 7,742.

Other Dream media coverage includes an Associated Press piece exploring the optimism surrounding the new franchise, the team cutting Danielle Hood, Usher hooking up with the Dream and a Seattle Times look at the new WNBA season.
