View Full Version : Favorite head to head matchups

After watching Wade and Lebron battle last night, I started thinking about some of the best head to head matchups over the years and how much excitement the fans get out of watching two great players perform at a high level. So, my question is, which head to head matchups do you circle on your calendar and say to yourself, "this is the matchup I have been waiting for all year?"

Examples of great head to head matchups over the yrs:

Russel vs Chamberlain

Bird vs Magic

Nique vs Jordan

Magic vs Jordan

More recent years:

Lebron vs Kobe

Wade vs Lebron

Shaq vs Duncan

My favorite matchup right now is actually Lebron vs. Wade.

It's pretty exciting since they're both in their athletic primes and something exciting always happens (dunks).

my favorite head to head matchupby far is kobe vs melo. there very similar in the way they both fight fierecely for post position. they both have that killer insticnt. they are both tough and both competitors. and when they play against eachother, its always fun to see how physical they play and how much they fight for positioning against eachother

You'll see a good one tonight...

Artest vs. Melo

As for some other big-time ones:
Kobe vs. LeBron
Duncan vs. Amar'e (Duncan always dominates but they've had some good battles.)
LeBron vs. Wade

Hopefully Bynum vs. Howard turns into a great one in years to come.
