WNBA Finals Set: Who are you rooting for?

It's hard to imagine that many people thought the fourth-seeded Atlanta Dream would reach the WNBA Finals.

It's also probably safe to say that nobody expected them to get to the Finals without losing a playoff game.

So after last year's WNBA Finals in which the underdog Indiana Fever surprised us all and took the Phoenix Mercury to five games, can we really count the Atlanta Dream out?

Simple: it's the regular season juggernaut Seattle Storm that went "150-0" at home according to Diana Taurasi vs. the upstart underdog Atlanta Dream who have surprisingly stormed through the Eastern Conference playoffs undefeated.

Who are you rooting for and -- just for the sake of discussion until Sunday -- why?
