The Dallas Cowboys are still moving on from having the luxury of DeMarco Murray as a reliable running back. With the new season looming, there is still a question of who will be their top candidate.
There is certainly no shortage in people to chose from, with the Cowboys having five possible players to pick. However, from the injured to the rookie, there needs to be one who can step up and shoulder the responsibility that Murray left.
The most likely candidate has to be Joseph Randle. An undrafted running back, Randle has showed that he can play at the top level. Last season, he had an average of 6.73 yards per carry, and he certainly looks stronger at the moment than he did last year. more >>
One of the most followed NBA stars in recent memory is Jeremy Lin, who became popular for his cinderella journey at the top of the league several years ago.
The short-lived phenomenon was known as "Linsanity," and it lasted for a few months during Lin's stint with the New York Knicks. His gameplay salvaged the team's hopes to enter the playoffs that season.
Unfortunately, after his memorable moments with New York, Lin's star has begun to wane, particularly during his stay with the Houston Rockets. Most of his critics say that Lin can only play great on a particular type of offense with the ball in his hands. That did not happen in Houston, and so his fans were very happy that he was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers last off-season. more >>
There were a lot of high hopes last season for the Chicago Bulls, which have been in their healthiest form in recent years. However, the changing roles for the players became evident and caused instability in offense.
Fortunately, the team has kept itself intact so far, entering the 2015-16 NBA season, although there are some rumors pointing to trades involving Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and even Jimmy Butler, who was obviously the best Bull to play last season.
The departure of coach Tom Thibodeau is crucial and will definitely change the style of Chicago's play. However, if the Bulls' roster remains the same when the season begins, players will become more familiar with their playing styles and attitudes on and off the court. more >>
