For the Heat I have to say the Bulls, we have only beaten them in 1 playoffs series, whereas they have beaten us in 5.

For the Nuggets it would have to be the Spurs.

All-time rivals for the Heat include:
Lakers (shaq vs kobe)
Pistons (ECF against Heat 2 years in a row)
Bulls (always interesting meeting in the playoffs)
Knicks (Allan Houston....nuff said)
Mavericks (2006 finals)
Magic (Florida Supremacy)

For the Celtics it goes:
1. Lakers (like thats not obvious)
2. Philadelphia 76'ers (mid 60's{Chamberlain} late 80's{Erving + Malone})
3. Detroit Pistons (80's)

Knicks:

All time rivals..the Bulls...still exists I guess, but not as big as it was in the Jordan days.
Also, the Heat as mentioned previously.
Indiana Pacers

Those rivalries were awesome..but that was all YEARS ago..

Right now..Its probably just rivalry with the division, mainly the Nets..oh and because of last years brawl, I guess Denver.

For the Wizards I guess Cleveland. Maybe the Bulls. Wizards don't really have rivals, cause we have never been that good, until now.

For the Spurs it would clearly be Dallas right now. I suppose Phoenix has now become a close second as well.

Lakers:
Celtics (60s, 80s, and who knows maybe from this year on)
Suns (i think thats dying off)
Spurs (early millenium, kinda died off when shaq left)
Jazz (90s, died off 2000s)
Mavs (still around i think)

and i dont consider heat a rival...

Yea I remember those matchups..I was always hyped for those matchups whenever Shaq would come into town..but yea, ever since he left it really hasn't been the same.

I wouldnt consider the timberwolves having any real rivals.

The nuggets are close but not really.

Thats kind of a rivalry, but not really. If you included them you would have to include everyone we played in the playoffs in 04. Rivalries to me mean like long standing hatred. I dont see minnesota having any hatred towards any other teams. Other then Mchale hating the lakers because of the celts/lakers rivalry.

i think for the rockets is definately the jazz and everyone in our division except memphis

Yeah, Jazz have always been the rockets #1 rival. And I geuss the mavs and spurs because they are also in texas, but it is to a much lesser extent. For all-time rivals, Seattle is also up there. The rockets and sonics had some good playoff series in the 90s

For the Raptors I would say the Sixers. We are kind of competing now with the Brand and O'Neal acquisitions as well as when we lost by just 1 point in game seven in the 2nd round back in 2001, when Carter missed that shot.

Lakers all-time rivalry is with the Celtics, but their current rivals over the last 5 to 10 yrs are the following teams: Spurs, Kings, and Blazers.

I would probably say it's Washington for Cleveland, even though Cavaliers own them..
