After weeks of intense changes in the NBA this offseason, things have finally settled down. We had star players switching from team to team and a couple of new NBA rules and schedule changes. Now, as teams work to finalize their rosters for training camp, NBA players and coaches are getting ready for the NBA 2016-2017 season. Here are a few updates on the NBA free agency scene:

Zach Randolph could suffer same fate as OJ Mayo

As we all know OJ Mayo a year ago was dismissed and suspended from the NBA for two years due to violating the league's anti-drug program in the offseason of 2016.

Mayo had a great and bright career averaging 13.8 points, 0.3 blocks, one steal, 2.9 assists, and 3.1 rebounds while shooting 42.9% from the field and 37.3% from beyond the arc. At present, it seems like another NBA player could face the same punishment after Zach Randolph was arrested in Los Angeles this week on marijuana possession charges as reported by Ronald Tiller of Memphis Commercial Appeal.

This could be bad news for the Sacramento Kings as they recently signed Zach Randolph to a huge two-year, $24 million contract this offseason. He has career averages of 16.8 points, 0.3 blocks, 0.7 steals, 1.8 assists, and 9.3 rebounds while shooting 47.1% from the field. Randolph will be entering his 17th NBA season this October that is if he will not get banned from the NBA once the trial begins on his case.

LeBron James or Kobe Bryant?

This has been a question often thrown to NBA fans, players, and analyst. Some would argue that it is LeBron due to his physical dominance along with amazing and unbelievable statistical numbers, while some would also choose Kobe as he has five Championship rings and has never choked when a clutch opportunity comes.

A few days ago, Michael Jordan was asked as to who was better, LeBron James or Kobe Bryant? Michael Jordan answered by saying, Kobe Bryant, as he believes that five championship rings are a big factor in determining who the better player is.

With that story, this years number two pick in Lonzo Ball of the Los Angeles Lakers was also asked to weigh in on the topic.

As reported by Adi Joseph of NBA USA Today, Ball chose LeBron James as he was his favorite player growing up. With him now being a Laker this offseason he admitted that it was a hard and difficult question because of the Legendary status of Kobe, especially in LA. No matter what the debates say, we must all agree that Kobe and James are two of the best NBA players the world has ever seen.
