lol, some o these choices dont even make sense. Lakers/Mavs???? They havent even met one time in the playoffs this decade. Clippers/Knicks???? They've sucked for most part of the decade, how the hell could they have a rivalry???? And Jazz?Spurs was prolly Duncan vs Malone in the late 90s early 2000s, and then 07 WCF Spurs vs Jazz, but nothing heated or historical about those.


Detroit/Miami

Lakers/Portland

Lakers/Spurs

Lakers/Suns

Suns/Spurs


Lakers/Kings


Lakers/Celtics


Cavs/Magic


Spurs/Mavs


Celtics/Pistons


Bulls/Pistons


Bulls/Celtics



A heated Lakers-Kings rivalry was for like 2 yrs 2001-2003, so I'd have to go with Lakers-Spurs for the decade. Met in 2001 WCF, 2002 semis, 2003 semis, 2004 semis, 2008 WCF. The only West teams this decade (and 1999) to win titles, with 4 a piece.

No rivalry has been withstanding over the whole 10 yr period, so I'll go with the one that lasted the longest IMO... Spurs-Lakers

The Clippers and the Knicks is the best rivalry in the history of the NBA, no other rivalry can match that.

On a serious note, it's Lakers and Suns.
I liked it watching as a kid and when Kobe Bryant posterized Steve Nash and put his crotch all over his face, I screamed.

These choices suck.

Best rivalry in the past decade has been Kings Vs Lakers.

They were evenly matched, and hate eachohter passionately.

Over the past decade it has to be Spurs vs Lakers. Back in the day, Kings vs Lakers was great as was Miami vs New York. In terms of all time, nothing is better than Celtics vs Lakers.

How about Dallas/Spurs?

Suns Spurs has been going on since Kidd was a Sun. Surprised that's not there.

And Lakers Mavs? Was that ever even a Rivalry? I think the Heat have a bigger rivalry with them than the Lakers did.
Lakers/Kings belongs in there too.
I question if this is a mock thread to just piss people off cuz outside of Lakers Spurs, it looks like a bunch of teams were just thrown in there for giggles.

Good call. Forgot about that too.
The list should include:

Suns/Spurs
Mavs/Spurs
LA/Spurs
LA/Kings
Heat/Pistons

I'm sure there's more, but those are the ones that stand out.

Too bad Boston and LA became elite this late in the decade, or else I'd say LA/Boston for sure.

If you count in longevity, than I would say Lakers-Spurs by a mile........

If you count for the most hated,gruesome rivalry, than I would say HANDS DOWN Lakers-"Queens"........ I still ****ing hate everything about that team.

Lakers and Spurs have combined for 7 NBA Championships in this decade (Lakers: 4, Spurs: 3) and faced each other 5 times in the playoffs (Lakers 4-1). It has to be them.

This thread is bit boring but ill add to it .. ppl when it comes to a rivalry its not on how many times a boring team like the spurs and the nba's spoon fed child the lakers have met its all about how much heart and soul .. and not to mention hate is on that hardwood floor and to me none this decade had the drama and excitment of the Lakers/Kings rivalry till this day people still talk about that match up and cant wait for when those two franchises meet again it will be personal .
