Your top 5 NBA Rivalries

Pacers-Knicks 1993-2000

Heat-Knicks 1997-2000 nba playoffs.

Celtics-Lakers 1980s

Lakers-Kings 2000-2002

Bulls-Pistons late 1980s

I liked the Pacers-Knicks rivalry the most because of what Reggie Miller did to the Knicks. Plus the rivalry is pretty even between the two during the time. Both teams won 3 playoff series a piece with the Pacers having won 1 more game than the knicks 18-17.

You pretty Much said all the good ones. But I'd like to add the presently best rivalry today's Lakers vs Celtics. They've already met in the finals 2 out of the last 3 years and could meet again this season.

Yeah those are pretty much

Yeah those are pretty much the best ones. There's a few recent and less significant ones I liked:

Cavs vs Wizards (playoffs)
-Deshawn Stevenson vs Lebron LOL
-Lebron talking to Gilbert while shooting free throws
-... there's more but I forgot

Bulls vs Celtics (playoffs 2009)
-easily the best playoff series that season IMO
-injured KG yappin at everyone like a big meanie

Rockets - Jazz in the

Rockets - Jazz in the mid-late 90's?
Didn't they meet up almost every year in the Playoffs?

& it happened recently in the last decade

Although it's not really hyped up like the others

@bennydabull

I'm a Wizards fan but I don't consider the Wizards vs the Cavaliers a "rivalry" because the results were so incredibly one-sided in the Cavs favor.

^^^Fosho I know what you

^^^Fosho I know what you mean, I just enjoyed the trash talking and such. Stevenson calling Lebron overrated. Remember Jay-Z made that song?

"Phx vs the whole state of texas"

Some of the funnest series of basketball to watch right there. Dallas vs. the Suns, and The Suns vs. the Spurs back in the 04-06 seasons were some of the more entertaining games we've seen in awhile.

@bennydabull

Yeah... then the whole Soulja Boy vs. Jay-Z beef that started with Deshawn taking sides with Soulja Boy and Lebron sticking with Jay-Z. Stevenson should have just kept his mouth shut and played ball 'cause Lebron got angry and just schooled him....
