...does rondo often travel on the first play of each game?

if the celtics win the opening tip off, the ball goes to rondo. he clearly takes posession of it, but then he will often toss (or bounce) the ball high in the air, grab it again and start dribbling. he is essentially passing the ball to himself. it looks like a clear travel to me, but yet it never gets called.

:confused:

The Celtics get away from a lot of things. Get use to it..

Who cares. They all travel on the first step. Kobe LBJ and the rest of em do the same thing. This thread should be closed.

I've wondered the same thing. Sure, theres a lot of subtle traveling at times that really don't matter in the grand scheme of things, but this example is pretty blatant.

I thought they did away with those calls and hand checking a long time ago?

thank you! it is very blatant and it is the first play of the game - hence the reason why i questioned it.

"really...your complaining about traveling in the nba..."

and to the fine fellow that said i am wrong - please enlighten me as to why! much obliged.

I understand that it takes away from the game and is obnoxious, but until they start actually calling traveling I dont see a problem with this. Its not like this is a game changing drive where hes taking 5 steps to drive to the hoop.

I really wish they would start calling travels because honestly the way they treat it makes it seem like its not even a rule. Its a joke.

But I just dont see the point in complaining about it. If you want to complain about something complain about star calls or inconsistent officiating, things that have a big impact on a game.

No not really, but the one thing I do get really annoyed with about rondo is that he reaches all the damn time and gets away with it.

I wasn't trying to complain, I was mostly just wondering how many other fans noticed the same thing and thought to themselves "huh... I thought that was a travel, is there something I don't know?". Obnoxious is the perfect way to describe it.
