St. Louis isn't the first city to offer a star enticements to stay with their team. Here's how other cities have tried to keep their All-Stars in town.

  • Indianapolis: Every child born in Indianapolis will be named Peyton Manning
  • Memphis: Marc Gasol given full creative control of Memphis Symphony Orchestra
  • New York: Truckloads of food have already been dumped on CC Sabathia's front lawn without his even needing to request it
  • New Orleans: Might actually give Chris Paul some decent players
  • Boston: The best surgeons Mass General has to offer will do what they can to make Glen Davis less egg-shaped
  • Phoenix: Can promise Ilya Bryzgalov 16,000 free tickets to every game
