NBA PREVIEW HATE: Marc Stein on ESPN proclaims Lakers-Kings the best rivalry in the NBA, and I would agree with that. I mean, there aren't a lot of other candidates; there's Lakers-Blazers (which exists to a large degree in the minds of the Blazers) and possibly Mavs-Spurs. Everything else is pretty burgeoning, plus having one team win all the time isn't providing the drama a fine rivalry would--and thus I express my distaste for the Jordan era in general. But I think the NBA is entering into a new era of greatness in terms of really entertaining and competitive basketball, so maybe we'll see some other ones crop up.
