Really? I've never seen Laker or Rocket fans go at it. I don't see a rivalry here.

The only real Lakers rivals are Boston, Sac-town, and Portland. The latter two have even died down in the past 10 years. Any other rivalry is one-sided.

We're under their radar. I mean, prior to last season, there really isn't any Rockets talk that stays on the first page for longer than 5 minutes. We've just been mediocre for so long.

That's what it is. One sided. Like the Cavs and Wizards rivalry.

There was one back in the T-Mac-Yao Ming-Shane Battier days. The last time we had one with the Lakers was when Artest was on the team.

Still, not our real rivals. Never met in the playoffs and Laker fans don't get hyped over the games, I don't know how Clipper fans feel. Same with Lakers-Rockets games, I don't get hyped. I get hyped over Lakers-Celtics, Lakers-Suns and Lakers-Spurs.

There is no Rockets Lakers rivalry. The teams haven't really met in the playoffs. The Spurs and Phoenix have more of a rivalry with the Lakers. Hopefully one can start this season!

no

but the last time they played eachother in the post season was pretty intense/heated. still not enough to warrant a rivalry. Any sane laker fan is happy dwights gone and shouldnt be warranting bad "juju" to the rockets and their fans.

The last game of the season was pretty cool. Maybe it could be a Kobe vs Dwight thing these next couple of years.

No.

Nothing but Kobestans butthurt over Dwight. For there to be a legit rivalry right now both have to be contenders. Lakers have fallen off hard. Not only will they not be legit contenders, they have nothing but old guys and have to rebuild. Even if they find a way to get Kobe and Pau to take less this next free agency year for them both, who can they recruit? Lakers keep hanging onto the old and past, it's destroying their future for years to come.

Show all the bloody battier pics you want, Battier is a heat now and will probably retire one. Not just the players, their history with each other is not that deep. They really haven't had to face each other in deep runs at the title.
