Who has the biggest rivalry in the NBA? I'm thinking LA vs. Phoenix and Utah vs. Houston. I think those are the two biggest. and maybe Cavs vs. Pistons... what do y'all think?

I like the Houston vs. Jazz. Two good teams who just struck gold this offseason I'd like to see them in the Playoffs next year w/ everyone healthy.

I used to like Pheonix, Lakers but ever since the trades the heat in that battle kinda died down.

Jazz fans could care less about Houston they are more rivals with Denver.

Yeah, but a rivalry has to be two sided, and for the Jazz to consider the Rockets a rival, the Rockets would actually have to knock them out of the playoffs for once. The players on the two teams now didn't play in the mid 90's. Sloan is the only one that would remember. This year can change that though. Both teams are loaded.
It is kind of like saying there was a Yankees-Red Sox rivalry before 2004. Not really

All time greatest rivalry:
Celtics-Lakers

Current rivals (like last 2 or 3 years):
West:
Spurs-Suns (their battles in the playoffs)
Rockets-Jazz (their battles in the playoffs)

East:
Cavaliers-Wizards (their battles in the playoffs)
Pistons-Heat (not much last year but from 04-07 they battled hard for top 2 seeds - they were 1 and 2 in both 04-05 and 05-06)

Those are my top 2 current favorites from each conference, and Celtics-Lakers has been re-ignited and always has been the greatest rivalry in the NBA without a doubt.

Cavaliers vs. Wizards

It's a shame the Wizards don't make it a very well fought one though it is funny with all the off-the-court antics.
