What are the best rivalries of all time? (besides the obvious lakers/celtics)
What is the best rivalry now? (besides lakers/celtics)
What rivalries are gonna occur due to the change of landscape this offseason?

Cleveland-Orlando, Cleveland-LA, Cleveland-Boston was picking up some steam, before...you know:sigh:

Now we can turn the page on Miami-LA and Miami-Boston....rivalries only exist through competitiveness though. If one rolls over the other all the time, it isnt much of a rivalry.

Miami vs all the top teams. ohh and Cleveland.

lakers-kings was huge for me cause i went to school in northern california and the kings actually used to be good.
lakers-spurs was another one to see who would dominate the 00's
bulls-utah in the late 90's was pretty epic
rockets-spurs- the dream vs the admiral, another solid instate rivalry
i think even lakers-phoenix is back on the table, we have seen them in the playoffs 3 of the last 5 seasons i think.

Mavs - Spurs, it almost always seems to go down to the very end
Mavs - Heat ,this one is underated but now with the LBJ, Bosh, Wade its gonna get more recognition
Celtics - Lakers, Love all the trash talking that goes on
Orlando - Miami, battle for Florida
Celtics - Bulls , I guess now its Rondo VS Rose
Cavaliers - Heat, We all know why
Portland - Lakers, this one has been heating up
Knicks - Heat, maybe ?????

these are just some off the top of my head

Heat-Magic and Heat-Lakers will be the new rivalries.

Bucks vs Bulls

MAYBE-- Bulls vs Wizards; Depends on how good Wiz get in future.. Wall vs Rose, Calipari products

Future-- Warrios vs Kings; Nor Cal teams, also Curry vs Evans

OKC vs. Seattle, if Seattle can ever get another team.

08-06-2010, 11:23 PM
Knicks-Nets. In a few years, both teams should be legit playoff teams, and fans already seem to argue with each other.

If Denver stays pretty good for the next decade, they could build one with OKC.

BOS and CLE hated each other. But obviously that has no meaning now...
