Sporting rivalries that challenge Warriors versus Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are currently interlocked in their third consecutive NBA Finals together, with the two teams splitting the two previous series in 2015 and 2016. Whilst many feel that this is one of sport’s great rivalries, there’s definitely been a couple that go above and beyond the basketball duo.

The range in sports here is evident, but the passion among their respective fans is not. Every team has a rival of sorts that pushes them to the limit, but few have seen their feud reach these kind of heights. Seriously, we’d be afraid for our safety attending any one of these match-ups.

So as Cleveland attempts to Defend The Land, and their hopes of being back to back World Champions, remember that these two sides have a long way to go before they scale the lofty heights of these 22 competitors.
