Found October 26, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
In the 60′s, it was Wilt Chamberlain vs. Bill Russell. In the 80′s, it was Larry Bird against Magic Johnson. Right in the 2010′s, it appears to be LeBron James vs. the rest of the NBA according to a Miami Herald interview with LeBron himself. Check out the below quote where he notes that he did have a rivalry with Paul Pierce but says that it has changed since: “It’s not just one guy,” James said. “I haven’t played against one individual for a long period of time — since basically it was me and Paul. Me and Paul, we had so many duels and almost every year we were going against Boston whether I was in Cleveland the last few years or Miami … So, I don’t know if there is one particular guy. There are some teams I believe are very competitive in both conferences, but it’s not just one guy.” *** James image courtesy of Getty Images
