I was just wondering if any of you guys consider yourself the rivals of any of the other D5 teams here? I don't mean like Lakers vs Celtics, I don't have a particular rivalry with LAL here. However, I do take special significance when I beat my division rivals; New York and New Jersey ;D These two are both original team owners from the start of D5, and we three teams are quite closely ranked at the moment. The rivalry is especially passionate for me at the moment because New York knocked me out of the playoffs last year.
I think all three teams have a great set of players too, complimented by genuine superstar players: Boston Celtics Perkins Bosh Deng Westbrook Deron Williams
New Jersey Nene Rashard Lewis Kevin Durant Danny Granger Jameer Nelson
New York Yao Ming Antonio McDyess Grant Hill Dwyane Wade Jason Kidd
Deron Williams - OJ Mayo - Luol Deng - Chris Bosh - Kendrick Perkins 2006/07 - 28W-54L 2007/08 - 39W-43L 2008/09 - 52W-30L (Semi Finalists) 2009/10 - 53W-29L (Semi Finalists) 2010/11 -
Not that there was much doubt that the Spurs were our arch nemesis before these playoffs but losing to them in the West Finals this year solidified it. That makes it back-to-back seasons San Antonio has eliminated us from the playoffs. It also makes 3 seasons in a row that we've met in the playoffs.

um lets see the Pacers don't really have Rivalries in here yet but maybe Memphis Grizzlies just because he wanted me to lose in the lottery and every time i faced him I wanted him to win so I could get John Wall.
