About Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

The roots of the Chicago Bulls Cleveland Cavaliers rivalry can be traced back over 30 years, since when the Cavs joined the NBA as an expansion team in the 1970’s. The rivalry took on a turn when in the 1980’s the Bulls drafted Michael Jordan, a player who would not only go down as the greatest of all time in the NBA but who also would create an absolute nightmare for the Cavs. The two teams would become locked into a seven year long battle from the late 80’s into the mid 90’s for playoff glory.

When Jordan left the Bulls, the rivalry calmed a little until the Cavs drafted LeBron James in the 2003 draft. Since the late 2000s, the rivalry has picked up steam once again and the two teams have been fighting for the Eastern Conference.

While the Bulls-Cavs rivalry has gone through many phases, this is one of the most fiercely fought rivalries in the NBA and has produced some memorable moments.
