Traveling ?

Who travels the most ? I think it's Lebron every single time I watch him play, I catch him traveling and it doesn't get called. Who do you think it is? I'm trying to be open minded I know a lot Lebron lovers and so called haters will automatically think he just hates Lebron, I'll give some links and examples. I'm wondering am I wrong for saying he travels the most in the NBA for the ??????

Dude everyone travels in the

Dude everyone travels in the NBA, Jason Kidd travels on nearly all of his 3pt shot fakes, Paul Pierce has also had his fair share around and huge ones at that (Rondo had a 4 step layup the other day as well), every player will have a travel that goes uncalled every now and then.

I am not a LeBron lover nor

I am not a LeBron lover nor am I a LeBron hater, it's annoying for you two post the same thread twice simply because everybody disagreed with you on the last one.

Get over it. You're a terrible poster and your threads carry no quality substance.

To answer your question

To answer your question seriously i would think Brendan Haywood would have to be up there, he travels at least once or twice a game, he's just lost all confidence offensively, love his defence though.

Lebron does travel a lot.

Lebron does travel a lot. Probably more then alot of players in terms of getting away with it. I actually agree completely with you, but I also think that if you are just picking up on this, then you are behind the times. Players have been travelling for years, and Lebron can get away with it because he's Lebron. Thats just kinda how it works. It does get annoying sometimes how the star players can get away with things, but again, thats how it goes.

Actually, have any of you

Actually, have any of you ever looked at the NBA rules on traveling? You probably haven't and I don't blame you (though this is a pretty sophisticated bunch of basketball fans, so you probably should have at some point (especially you for never ever as original poster of this thread). What I find annoying is that is doesn't seem like any of the announcers or analysts have ever looked at the rules. In all my years of watching basketball and hearing people complaining about traveling, I've never heard a reference to the actual rules.

Basically the rules DO NOT focus on the number of steps. The basic rule is "upon completion of a dribble, [a player] may use a TWO-COUNT RHYTHM in coming to a stop, passing or shooting a ball." Rule 10 Section XIII - Traveling. The rule goes on for another page dealing with lots of situation. But the starting point is RHYTHM.

Basically as long as there are two beats to your move and you do it in rhythm you can do things like jump stop which include both your feet. I'm not saying that NBA guys don't travel, but there is a lot more leeway to the rules than people realize than counting how many times your feet touch the ground.

Also you are allowed to use the these moves to come to a legal stop, which estabishs a pivot foot but allows you to then pivot and you may pick up the pivot foot provided you shoot or pass before you put the pivot foot down. So basically after your two-beat move, you are allowed to jump again provided you shoot or pass before you land.

Actually, the rules I just

Actually, the rules I just qouted where from the 2006. For some reason that is what is still on the NBA website and they are what I remember last time I looked at this. The rules have been slightly updated at some point. But the basic point is the same.

The current rules now say two steps (making my whole tirade seem kind of silly, but really the 2006 rules are still the ones you find on NBA.com). But the current rules make clear that each "step" can be a two foot jump. However the rules are now a little more restrictive about what you can do if you use a jump step on your second "step". At that point you can come to a stop, but you can't establish a pivot foot. You can still lift either or both feet, but you must shoot or pass before putting either foot back down.

For those who are curious.

Old 2006 rules are: nba.com/media/rule_book_2005-2006.pdf New rules are http://i.cdn.turner.com/nba/nba/.element/pdf/2.0/sect/officiating/Offici...
