Battle of the bad

16 Bulls vs Jazz
17 Celtics vs Wizards

This rivalry is heating up! The funeral game, and the John Wall game winner, this rivalry has some potential to be a great one. And another thing- Boston and D.C are actually close to each other, with L.A being on the opposite side of the country from Boston. Playing each other in the Finals doesn't count. People say the Warriors and the Cavs are rivals? No, they are most certainly not. Being in two totally different conferences, and then meeting up in the Finals is not a true rivalry.
