The Las Vegas Wildcards are a professional basketball team based in Las Vegas, Nevada. They play in the Mountain Division of the Western Conference in the Furry Basketball Association (FBA). They were formerly the Las Vegas Deuces in the FBA D-League but were promoted to full franchise status in 2012.

Known for their golden yellow uniform, the Wildcards play at Fremont Palace, part of the Dynn Complex of hotels just off the famous Las Vegas strip. The Dynn Complex has also hosted many FBA Draft Nights including many in the last decade. James Dynn, one if the richest owners of the franchise has cut a controversial figure in the past for being both outspoken and meddling in team affairs, but has since given up the job of general manager to Mikela Soros.

The teams success in the league so far has been incredibly modest suffering the same growing pains that many new teams get when entering the league. This was punctuated by a disastrous 2015-2016 season where a failure to sign players caused problems on the court and Dynn's media rants caused problems off it, once even suggesting he would not pay the players after particularly poor performances.

However the 2016-17 season saw surprising success come the teams way with the team not only reaching the playoffs for the first time, but the Conference Finals as well. With the signings of Wayne Kirkpatrick and the much sought Fenruss Brylee, alongside rookie Lee Baraquin and sophomore Misha Maxwell, the team found a new steel that had them even leading the division for a while.

Li Ho Fook, another long standing player, known for his incredible dunking despite his diminutive nature retired at the end of that season, with his jersey number #01 being retired for his services to the franchise on and off the court.

The franchise carries modest support, and is unlikely to ever become one of the best supported franchises on game nights mainly due to the tourist nature of Las Vegas, but enjoy more global recognition then some other teams thanks to the glitz and glamour. Any player who initially signs for the franchise is homed in Panorama Heights, a plush apartment complex part of The Dynn.
