There is a need for new NBA rivalries to take hold of our imagination and make us turn on the TV.

Fear not, though. There are several new rivalries we can look at to entertain ourselves, and they're all in different stages of bloom.

Some are in their infancy, some are in the toddler stage and some are preteens, but they’ve all arisen within the last decade.

Some of them are individual rivalries. Some of them are team rivalries. Some of them are a mix. However they unfold, when these sides clash, everyone gets especially up for it.
