It's gotta be the Pacers/Knicks rivalry in the 90's for me. I was just a little kid and the Raptors weren't in existence yet. Before the Raptors, my Dad was a huge Knicks fan. My favourite player was and always will be Reggie Miller so naturally, I rooted for the Pacers. The 94-95 and Eastern Conference Semi Finals is probably the most exciting playoff series I can recall watching in my lifetime. 97-98 was great as well but I didn't watch much of the Pacers during the regular season that year as I was busy watching the Raptors getting creamed every night.

So what's your favourite rivalry of all time?

In terms of intrigue I find the Kareem vs Elite Centers rivlaries at the top. His career bridges some interesting eras vs Wilt, Thurmond, Unseld, Reed, Moses, Ewing, and Dream.

I found MJ's rivalries to be pretty weak IMO. Magic-Bird is played out
