Texas by far

06-28-2010, 03:04 PM
Spurs/Mavs alone is bigger than any combination the other two states bring. So Texas.

As much as I hate the rockets and spurs, they always are good!!!! and have talent, and we do also so its us 3. Texas

06-28-2010, 03:09 PM
mavs - spurs rivalry beats 'em all.

06-28-2010, 03:10 PM

Born and raised in Florida.... Texas is my answer.

California - Lakers, Clippers, Warriors and Kings
Texas - Mavericks, Rockets, Spurs
Florida - Heat, Magic

California - Lakers are the only big standout in competition! the clippers and kings have been lottery teams last few years, the warriors have had so many injuries but not even close to competing with the lakers

Texas - When all 3 teams are healthy they are all competitors in the western conference, most interesting games to watch because there all fighting for a top spot in the west.

Florida - The Magic are much bigger and better then the heat as of right now, although that could change in the 2010-2011 season!

Easily TX.

Easily TX.

Texas, not even close. Rockets-Mavs even had a couple of good playoff series, but the Spurs-Mavs rivalry blows out the other options.

06-28-2010, 07:36 PM
Texas. I guess it would depend on the year (2002 LA/SAC-WCF), but for the majority of the time in the past ten years the Rockets, Mavs and Spurs have all been extremely competitive.

06-28-2010, 07:37 PM
Obviously Texas, but Florida could have a rivalry next year depending on how Miami does in FA.

06-28-2010, 07:39 PM
Oops i voted for Fl because i thought it was for all sports for some reason. For Basketball its definitely texas

06-28-2010, 07:46 PM
Currently it is Texas... no contest.

06-28-2010, 07:56 PM
Aside from the brief time of the bitter Kings-Lakers, Texas takes it.

06-28-2010, 08:14 PM
ima just post in this thread b4 it gets closed

because this is a stupid question its not even a debate

now if we kept the title (which state has more of a bitter rivalry between its teams (cali tx or fl) for high school football then this might get nasty and personal but i still may of voted for Texas

I think you guys are underestimating how crazy the arenas get when the Kings and Lakers play. Arco Arena is filled with half Lakers fans and half Kings fans, you can imagine how well that goes over. The two teams may not be playing on the same level right now, but there's still a lot of bitterness. I'm not saying California wins, but something to consider.

I say Texas by a long shot because California and Florida are way to soft to be rivalries. California and Florida is about beaches, palm trees, nice weather and the nice sunny days there. Just don't mess with Texas.
