Brady/Manning...Bird/Magic...Ali/Frazier. What is the best rivalry in sports?

The two best quarterbacks in football renew their rivalry this Sunday in Denver with a trip to the Super Bowl and New York on the line.

But is Tom Brady vs Peyton Manning the greatest rivalry in sports?

In the 12 years since the Patriots made it to the Super Bowl in 2001, 24 teams have played in the game. A Brady or Manning (Peyton) lead team has made 7 appearances. The other bigger than life rivalry in the past 30 years has been Bird vs Magic. Their dominance over an equally as long 12 year span (1980-1991) featured 15 appearances combined for the duo. The more remarkable note on Celtics vs of those franchises appeared in the NBA Finals in EVERY year during that period.
