Ok. Last post on traveling to wrap up this weeks discussions. I asked this question yesterday and about 99% answered incorrectly. "If you have a clear line to the basket. Step first. Then dribble. How many steps do you have again if you don't dribble again?" About 90% of people said 2. 9% said 1. The real answer is 3. (Europeans stay out of this lol). That means yes, you can do a straight line drive in 1 dribble and 4 steps. How is that possible? Timing. @jusanderson1 here stepped left, dribbled and had time before he picked up the ball to take a right step (we call this a hidden step). This placed the timing of his pickup on his third overall step (being his left foot) and his final step being his right foot for a finish. In the US, this is a very common play on all levels and is a great demonstration of timing being a big part of the travel violation. So stop counting steps all the time and start working on your timing players. Until next time...#trainimpossible Im done. New topic...haha
