    I understand your thinking though I view that rivalry as a little one-sided. If anything the Bulls and Pistons are probably a better one just in terms of playoff balance. Good pick though.

    To me Microsoft and Apple conquers all in that group. Two guys at their head were the single reasons for our unprecedented tech boom the past few decades. I think the rivalry only made it better.

    An outstanding answer. It had everything: trash talk, controversy, bitter hatred, and three outstanding fights that remain the standard of boxing at its best.

    The longevity alone is so impressive. From the early '70s when the Niners couldn't conquer Staubach to the '80s when Montana and Clark put Dallas to bed for a decade up to Steve Young desperately trying to conquer Aikman, Smith and Irvin. Awesome.

    It just goes to show how destructive ego can be in any form of society, be it business, science or otherwise. Edison for some reason worried about his legacy. He never understood what he and Tesla could've accomplished together. Sad.

    It's all about keeping the right formula. If personalities don't mesh it will create big problems. It's a real shame your band didn't work out. Fascinating story.
