    When you consider the Championships the two Franchises have accumulated and the great basketball players that played for both Franchises, yes, its the best rivalry in the NBA.

    I would say yes it is. My personal favorite rivalry was the Bulls and Knicks during the early and mid 90's.

      I wrote a Hub about the Rivalry and the Knicks-Pacers as well.

    I think it used to be the best rivalry in the NBA in the days of Magic and Bird, and it kind of got revived four-five years ago when the teams met in the finals. However both of these teams are not even at the top of their conference. Lakers are a below .500 team and Celtics are getting old fast. Because of that there's no way this is the best rivalry in the NBA. I almost feel as though there is no good rivalry in the NBA right now. Maybe if the Knicks and Nets meet in the playoffs a few times, but the league really only has a few good teams that are strides ahead of the others. to a point where the NBA is not watchable until the playoffs.

    Over the length of time, yes it is by far the best in NBA history.  However, if we're talking right now, I don't think there is a more anticipated matchup than the Bulls and Heat.  It is always a grudge match, playoff-like atmosphere between two teams that despise each other for the few hours they're on the court.
