List RulesVote up the best players in the history of UNLV men's basketball.

The best UNLV Runnin' Rebels players ever have all had a part in making Las Vegas one of the top-tier Division I college programs in the nation.

Older players like Reggie Theus and Sidney Green made their mark in the history of UNLV's offense with their great performances in the past, as newer populars players like Shawn Marion and Joel Anthony carried on that legacy with tremendous talent and skill. The Runnin' Rebels have had many players go on to the NBA, and some even had Hall of Fame-level careers, but it all started with their days on the starting roster for Las Vegas basketball.

So which of these players from UNLV's long history deserves to rank near the top of the list? Who are the best Las Vegas players of all-time? Vote below, and if you see any players missing from the list who should be considered, feel free to add them as well.
