NJ by a mile.

And as long as our former superstar will be there, that's going to be our biggest rival.

Ask yourselves: does any other team get that kind of atmosphere at the ACC? discussion over.

Interesting how Atlanta isn't on this list. I would rank them above the Bulls. I voted for the Knicks.

I voted "other" but what I really mean: the Raptors greatest rivalry is the team they are playing

As far as this pool concerns, so far is better suited for "the Raptors fans greatest rivalry"!

We do not have a rivalry yet.

In fact, in today's NBA very few rivalries still exist. LA-Boston Finals certainly didn't have the feel of the past encounters to it - too many years have passed. Suns-Spurs come as close as it gets these days to a rivalry - you need some bad blood to fuel it, you know...

I wish it was NY because it would be a lot of fun, but the Knicks just haven't been good enough to be anyones rival in recent times - not that the Raps are any kind of juggernaut.

But I went with NJ.

fancy has it right - no other team gets the kind of reception at the ACC that the Nets get.
