Anyone read any good magazines lately? If one is a subscriber to Las Vegas Magazine or may have spotted a Las Vegas Magazine somewhere in the area, one may have spotted a pair of basketball VIPs on the cover.

The magazine, in its June 17 edition has a feature on the team – the first professional basketball team in Vegas. On the cover is head coach Bill Laimbeer and star player A’ja Wilson.

At this point in the season, the Aces are at 4-9 and are looking to find their footing in a Las Vegas professional sports landscape that remains relatively fresh. Wilson expressed optimism about the possibility that the Aces could eventually be atop the WNBA.

I think when you look at the league across the board, not everyone just came out and was on top. It takes a building year, and this is our building year.

We’re writing our own book, so to have this opportunity in a great place like Las Vegas and show our energy and the atmosphere, I think it’s something special.

Speaking of signs that a team is certainly weaving its way into the fabric of a town’s sports landscape…MGM has no problem bringing the savage.
