What do u guys think is the best rivalry in the NBA of ALL TIME. im not talking about now because we all know that some times rivalry are more heated when both teams are good and suck when one is bad. So since the NBA has been around, what do u think is the most intense, fun to watch and important NBA rivalry?

Mine is Bulls vs. Pistons because i really think the players in the Jordan era hated each other. you would never see them hi five and stuff like that, or hug before tip off... Also i think that the fans of these two cities really don't like each other and get into it as well. I know i hate the pistons more than the packers and that's saying a lot.

Boston and LA for sure because of the history and tradition of great players. It is a rivalry that was great and now has been restored.

Come on the Celtics and Lakers have battled in the 60's, 80's and nowadays, so of course it is them.

If you wanted to say what your favorite rivalry of all time was then that is a different issue.

Why even ask? The answer is well known even by people who don't follow the sport. Do you expect someone to say Charlotte Bobcats vs. New Orleans Hornets or something? Obviously, like every other person who has a brain on this site, it's Lakers vs. Celtics.

:p Well obviously it's Utah and New Orleans! The battle for who should truly be called the Jazz!

I think you have to say Celtics and Lakers. One of those teams have pretty much always been a dominant force in the NBA. The Lakers were underdogs to the Celtics in the 60s, evened it out a bit in the 80s, and need to even it out now.

There are some other good ones though.

I think its the Charlotte Bobcats vs the New Orleans Hornets.... whose the true charlotte team? With whom does the majority of the fans loyalty lie? Why were the Charlotte Hornets in the Western Conference but the Charlotte Bobcats in the Eastern? These are the questions the fans, coaches, and players must face before every game.... hence giving it the intensity and enigma to earn the title as the greatest rivalry in NBA history.

Hopefully Bulls Knicks heats up.

The Pistons Bulls rivalry is still pretty heated. Tyrus and Rip hate eachother. Other then that, I don't know.
