So you think overall, Suns had the upper hand on the Lakers during Nash's run?


Suns & Spurs are bigger playoff rivals but in terms of overall playoff + in division I would think Suns/Lakers

I don't think there's that many rivalries in the NBA period and certainly nothing that remotely compares to Celtics/Lakers. Probably because there's been 3 dominant teams over the NBA's existence and no one put up much of a competitive fight in their years of dominance.

They had the upperhand for three years and we had the upperhand since Kobe joined. In terms of playoffs they eliminated us twice while we only took them out once. They might not have had the upperhand overall in terms of title runs, but in terms of our run ins together during the playoffs they did.

Celtics/Lakers
Heat/Knicks???
????????
????????

^^^Speaking on top renewed rivalries


I'm saying LA over Suns because while Suns did knock LA out twice & won 2-3 division titles, LA still won more NBA titles & divisional titles during the same run to go with beating Phoenix on the way to one of them if remember correctly..Judge Miami/Boston different since they play in different divisions.

Bulls/Knicks throughout the 90s was a fierce rivalry even though Jordan owned them and the only time they won was when he was swinging a bat.

Bulls/Pistons late 80s-early 90s is definitely a rivalry too.

I would say Lakers/Kings was a rivalry in the early 00s even though it was one sided. 01 series was a sweep but 00 and 02 went the distance.

Jazz/Rockets was pretty wild in the 90s too.

This is true. Actually, Celtics/Lakers are one of the biggest rivalries in all sports and I'd say easily the biggest in North American sports as they've competed for championships while other rivalries are usually in conferences/divisions.

There have been some other great ones this last decade though; such as the Lakers/Spurs, Spurs/Suns, Dallas/Lakers, Dallas/Spurs. Sadly I don't see those types of rivalries happening again since every player wants to be "friends" now and act like complete ......s when around each other. There is no more hate involved as players know each other too well.

There's really only been 2 dominate teams throughout the history of the NBA. Other teams were either only dominant for a decade (Bulls in 90's, Spurs in 00's) or were only dominate for short periods of time (Detroit, Philly).

Of actual rivalries in the current NBA, I'd say:
Celtics/Lakers
Celtics/Heat
Celtics/Knicks
Heat/Knicks
Heat/Bulls
Thunder/Lakers
Clippers/Lakers

Sure some aren't as serious as others but they're still rivalries.

I included the Bulls because they completely dominated the 90s. No team other than Celtics and Lakers have been that dominant. Celtics/Lakers/Bulls.
