Let me make this clear. When I speak about toughness in the basketball sense, it has nothing to do with fighting. Basketball toughness is the ability to miss two consecutive shots, and come back and knock down the 3rd, or to step over and take that charge from the linebacker playing bball. Overall toughness is the ability to play through the highs and lows of the game, while staying focused on giving your team the best chance to win. In this article we take a look at the 20 toughest players in Las Vegas.

2. Vinny VeikalasVinnyVeikalas6'3" | SGValley | 2021StateNV 6’3 SG Valley 2021 - Veikalas is returning to the state after a year in Colorodo. A bull who gets tough in the paint buckets.
