What are the Top 5 all time team rivalry's and What are the top 5 current team rivalry's

When I mention this don't just say Lakers vs Celtics #1. Rank them in order. Like Lakers vs Celtics in the 60's is different than Lakers vs Celtics in the 80's. Saying Bulls vs Heat is different as well. As their was a Bulls vs Heat '96-98 and Bulls vs Heat '06-07. There was Jazz vs Rockets 1995-1998 and then Jazz vs Rockets '06-08. So specify when ranking the rivalries.

Orlando and Miami have never really been a rivalry. I can't stand the Magic, but really they're just there.

Good list. I'd put Pacers vs Knicks of the late 90s, and Suns vs Spurs in the honorable mentions too

No Bulls Knicks 90s? Really?
Or even Bulls Jazz 90s?

I don't consider something a rivalry if the same team always won.

I'd say Orlando vs Chicago was more of a rivalry than Chicago vs NYK.
