    I dont think you have that many rivals. People just dont like you. There is a difference.

    Kings hate us, we could care less about them.
    Warriors hate us, um, no offense, but who are the Warriors?
    Clippers hate us, whatever. [​IMG]
    Celtics hate us, we hate them. This is a rivalry.
    Cavs don't hate us, we don't hate them. It's two mega stars that push this. Meet in the finals, then it'll change.
    Spurs hate us, we hate them. This is a rivalry
    Blazers hate us, we could care less about them
    Suns hate us, we hate them. This was a rivalry, not anymore though. [​IMG]
    Jazz hate us, we hate them. This is a rivalry.
    Pistons hate us, we hate them. This is a rivalry.

    All those little inferior teams hate us and always will, but until they do something that matters, Lakers don't care about them.

    I only consider the Spurs and Celtics as rivals.

    The Blazers are close to our rivals as well.

    I think the lakers vs suns rivalry was the best one within the last 3 years. I really wanted to see la vs phoenix first round but thats not happening

    The Kings are NOT a rival of us.

    They.. and their fans care too much about us.

    We dont give a F about them... or their walking out of the stadium with 5 mins to go left $*# fans [​IMG]

    You gotta actually have battles with a team to be considered rivals.

    The Celtics and the Spurs are our only rivals.

    In the NBA, two teams have to be good to be a rivalry. It's not like college basketball.

    knicks kinda they used to go at it in the 70s + the whole east coast vs west coast. Id def consider the Lakers one of our rivals not as big as like Swampratsor Celtics or Heat/Bulls/Pacers, but rivals nonetheless.

    the lakers only rivals are boston, san antonio, utah, portland, phoenix and houston portland and houston being from the battles they've had over the years.

    those other teams its been so one sided in the lakers favor that it should be called dominance instead of a rivalry

    depends on what era you're talking about.

    70's-celtics
    early and mid 80's-celtics and 76ers
    late 80's-celtics, jazz, mavs, blazers, and pistons
    early 90's-didn't matter after magic retired...rebuilding stage...clippers
    mid to late 90's-suns, jazz, spurs, rockets and clippers
    2000's-kings and blazers...and clippers (at least clipper nation...haha)

    The Lakers have no rivals, there is no equivalent to them. Any game the Lakers should strictly be considered an exhibition that does not mean anything muchlike a Harlem Globe Trotters game.

    Whatever...rivalries died with Stern's rules.

    The last real rivalry was Kings-Lakers. I wasn't fan of either team, but I watched EVERY match-up.

    Lakers are easily the best and have been for a while. Every team that has but up a decent showing against them in the last few years (beat them once or twicein the same season) assumes that their rivals. Expect the same thing to happen with the C's over the next few years.

    The only thing annoying about this is that fans of teams, like the Kings, (who were ONCE the rivals of the Lakers) still hate the Lakers today, and it'sreally all in vain. But you could probably understand where some of that hatred comes from. For instance that clown baby Kaimel Rule keeps taking shots even though there is no rivalry, but trying to be a a-hole. This dude is like 50 Cent. [​IMG]

    If we played them on Christmas day then that team is a rival.

    who said the BEST rivalry was the SUNS and LAKERS in the last three years.... MAYBE because that was the ONLY rivalry in the last three years (other then theemergence of the Lakers and Celtics rivalry last june)

    Exactly.

    You cant have rivalries with bums. I wouldnt of thrown Utah in there cuz they havent beat yall in the playoffs.

    Celtics,Spurs and Pistons.

    Kings and Lakers were great games but they never won anything so I cant call them a rival.
