RANKED: The 25 Best Sports Rivalries In North America

25. Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors

While the excitement level emanating from the Warriors-Cavs rivalry surely warrants higher placement atop this list, there simply hasn’t been enough of a sample size. The two teams met three-straight times in the NBA Finals — with Golden State coming out on top in two of those match-ups. With LeBron James leaving the Cavs, this battle between Cleveland and Golden State is nothing more than an average NBA game. Regardless, the drama and theater provided by this vast collection of talent has been quite brilliant.
