Chicago Bulls Rivalries

The Bulls share rivalries with the Cavs, the Pistons, the Heat, and the Knicks.

Cleveland Cavaliers

These teams have been playing each other since the 1970s, but their rivalry began when Michael Jordan joined the Chicago franchise.

After Jordan made a move out of Chicago, the rivalry died down, but when the Cavs acquired Lebron James in 2003, things intensified once again.

Detroit Pistons

The main division rivals for the Bulls have been, doubtlessly, the Pistons.

And things got intense during the late eighties and early nineties, when the two franchises played against each other during the postseason four consecutive times, with Detroit beating the Bulls each one of those times.

Miami Heat

This rivalry began during the 1990s when Miami became strong title contenders.

With that said, the Bulls were able to eliminate the Heat 3 times, allowing Chicago to crown themselves champions each one of those 3 seasons.

This rivalry got intense again with the emergence of superstars Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade.

New York Knicks

And there’s another franchise the Bulls have been battling very aggressively, and those are the Knicks.

These franchises met at the postseason in four consecutive occasions, from 1991 to 1994, and then again in 1996, with the series going to full seven matches during 1992 and 1994.

And this is a rivalry that’s still strong today, both for members of the team and fans alike.
