The NBA Finals begin tonight with the Lakers hosting the Celtics in a best of seven series. There’s no doubt that the Lakers vs. Celtics rivalry is one of the best in all of sports. It’s got tremendous history with some of the all time NBA greats holding a place on either the Lakers or Celtics roster. Bird, Magic, Kareem, Chamberlain, Russell, Cousy, Cowens, and the list goes on and on and on.
Other sports have their own intense rivalries. Go to any Yankees vs. Red Sox game and you’ll hear seven year olds with the mouths of truck drivers. North Carolina and Duke – another great rivalry at the college level. As far as individuals go, how about Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi or Ali and Frazier?
With that said, NFL rivalries are great too. The Cowboys vs. the Redskins is always a classic twelve round battle. I’ll sit down and watch a Vikings vs. Packers game or a Giants vs. Eagles game any day even though I’m not invested in any of those teams.
The Broncos have intense foes in the Raiders, Chiefs, and Chargers. My personal favorite is the Broncos-Raiders rivalry.
Who do you like to see the Broncos go up against and beat time and time again? Leave a comment below and let’s get this discussion rolling.
