      @meg Ronnie keeps showing the video of Giannis making his moves against the Nets, show some other videos where he does take about 3/1/2 steps.

      He travels. For breakdown with Ronnie Nunn we kept getting the same highlight where no travel takes place. Why not breakdown the opening montage of moves in this upload instead where we clearly see him travel?

      People mistake taking steps after no longer dribbling and taking steps after a gather as traveling. If you stop dribbling and gather the ball, you have two steps to do something with the ball and cannot pivot after that, etc. Taking a step right when you gather DOES NOT count, as the ref is saying in the video, when you gather you have two steps AFTER the gather.

                2:11 mark shows how illegal his move is. Gathers with RIGHT foot, then takes L, R, L. Nunn is way off on describing that.

                              some of these are deadass two step euros, some are clean euros (including the gather step) & some are just blatant travels

And shame on this ref for trying to say it's exactly what Dr. J did. No it is not, GTFOH with that. This is new-age officiating is horrible and it's no wonder they get so many calls wrong .

So how or why is Giannis taking 3 steps is not a travel if Manu only took 2 steps after a dribble during a Eurostep.

For example when Wilt Chamberlain started playing . NBA rules allowed a dunk from the foul line . As great as wilt was he could not shoot fouls shots . So With his long arms and legs he just jumped from foul line and dunked it . They changed the rule so you could not do that to make it fairer for the smaller players . However when Magic Johnson came in the NBA back in the 70s the way he dribbled the ball would be called carrying and the ball would be given to the opposing team however with no foul shots of course . Also Larry Bird would get away with sneaky fouls .

It really opens up Giannis isolation plays. And if people try to help Giannis, kicks it out or just puts defenders on posters.
