Bulls have had 5 seasons of at least .500. Yes the first years were a disaster but that is expected when you lose your HC and almost the entire roster from the previous year.

Not sure if you have a grasp of the definition of "complete failure".
I didn't mean complete failure, but I did quote it so I stand corrected. But the Bulls haven't been anything to be proud of, either.

I just don't think the Bulls have that certain "something" to go back to another Jordan era. I'm not a soothsayer. LeBron may sign with Chicago. But past history gives doubt. And that was more recent to the Jordan era.
You mean because the previous class skipped on them? The class of T-Mac and Duncan? The Bulls had nothing other than cap space. They weren't winning before and they had nothing to win with to entice anyone. Plus they had Krause. He's now gone.

Yes the Bulls won because of Jordan. But the Lakers won because of Kobe. Shaq. Magic. I just don't see the argument there.

No one is saying the Bulls will go back to a Jordan like era. That's not what this discussion is even about. You mentioned the Bulls aren't getting anyone other than Boozer or JJ. You made no argument why other than saying Chicago was nothing before MJ and is nothing after him.

True.

That will be changing here shortly, I would wager.

Okay. But this doesn't make your team more prestigious or visible than the Knicks.

But it doesn't make them any less because of the past. Same goes for NY and whoever else. No free agent is going to care what the Knicks or Bulls did in the 80's.

New York is the bigger market but Chicago is not small either. We're talking about the bigger cities in the US here among a couple others. The fact that the Bulls have Rose, Noah, Deng, Gibson and almost the ability to sign two max agents has to give them a heads up against other teams. Does that mean that LBJ and Bosh are locked to come here? No.

But we're not talking about LBJ going to LAL are we? I've already stated that LAL and Boston are and probably always will be the two most prestigious teams in the league.
