We saw what happened in 2010... the org went all out, and this is the city of Chicago we're talking about, and all we got was Boozer and some good role-players.
Too big of a shadow for these generation of players, except Rose.
But players still flock to LA. Boston has the same problem but they were lucky to trade for guys starving for a title like KG and ray.
