I looked in the door and the place was empty. Maybe you should have a free bar and serve refreshments.

The hand switching was nice. Looked to me like two-and-a-half steps after the ball was clutched and immobile, but that's just me.

well its a good thing that thats legal then lol

lag∞n, Monday, 3 May 2021 19:46 (four months ago) link

lol apparently

sharpening the contraindications (Aimless), Monday, 3 May 2021 19:56 (four months ago) link

it literally is, the half step is the gather step, then you get two after that

lag∞n, Monday, 3 May 2021 19:58 (four months ago) link

the mellow ball

ciderpress, Monday, 3 May 2021 19:59 (four months ago) link

they used to even refer to it as two and a half steps but that terminology has fallen out of usage

if I’m gonna keep watching hornets highlights they’re going to need a new announcer he’s so bad

"MVP Love" (Clay), Monday, 3 May 2021 20:03 (four months ago) link

i kind of like it for the highlights but its def grating for a whole game

lag∞n, Monday, 3 May 2021 20:03 (four months ago) link

you have to understand that I am old and the travel rule was definitely more strictly interpreted in the 1960s when I was learning the game. The current game is looser and allows more action and improvisation, which is good, but my brain still sees "travel" on those moves.

I feel like I can’t have a reaction because he has so much reaction but it’s a professional hazard xp

"MVP Love" (Clay), Monday, 3 May 2021 20:06 (four months ago) link

e.g. if you always get two and a half steps in any direction after picking up your dribble, then why is it traveling when you switch pivot feet? my brain breaks.

sharpening the contraindications (Aimless), Monday, 3 May 2021 20:08 (four months ago) link

momentum / shooting motion

travels are def called a lot loser now but whats interesting is from a formal perspective theyre not actually being called differently (tho the rules have actually been changed somewhat over the years) its all to do with players stretching the definitions by doing stuff like picking the ball up super early in the gather step or taking huge steps and changing direction ie the euro step, like you can go back to basketballs early days and find footage of guys taking two and half steps going into a layup no problem but theyre naturally looking steps and theyre picking the ball up at the end of the gather

its just a different rule that hinges on whether the player has come to a stop and established their pivot foot

lag∞n, Monday, 3 May 2021 20:11 (four months ago) link

Idk if it was always different between NBA and amateur ranks, but I remember my youth coach showing us all the rulebook section which specified we get 1.5 steps. Def frustrates me to play with a generation who grew up getting 2.5 steps, plus gathers and hop steps and God knows what else.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 22:08 (four months ago) link

idk about youth rules but my understanding is at the pro level the half step wasnt mentioned in the rules it was a colloquialism the rules just said two full steps after picking up the ball and then a while ago they put a reference in there to the gather step where it had only been replied before

lag∞n, Thursday, 6 May 2021 15:40 (four months ago) link

one and a half steps doesnt make any sense to me just rhythmically, that would be like an off foot layup or something

*implied

what if Edwards started the game by freeing himself from chains and padlocks in a water tank like Houdini then put up 30? that would help his case
