    Revised Travelling Rules

    Sounds like they are changing it a from a gather and 2 and a half steps to a gather and 2 steps. And it's going to be a "point of emphasis" this year.

    This could be interesting.

    Lebron's going to shoot a record number of 3s.

    Good, these travels on step backs and euro steps are getting out of hand.

    I donít think anything will change. I hope it does but I think this will be like when they try to stop guys from yelling at the refs the first month of the season every 4 years

    Yep, and it won't be applied to everyone anyways. Harden will continue to take 4 steps w/o a call for example. So will all stars

    Iíve always hated superstar calls and will continue too. I get that itís an entertainment business but call the game the same across the board.

    Says who? Creativity Added is always a good thing. Just because Harden and Manu take a more interesting 2 steps doesnt mean they should be penalized


    Also speaks to Harden's legacy, the league needs new rules to contain him

    Harden takes more than 2 and a half steps on both moves, it's absurd. Lowering it to 2 and calling it tighter, should make for a more even playing field.

    Agree with others, I'll believe it when I see it. Traveling in the NBA has been a part of their version of basketball since at least MJ's retirement. I do think the league is interested in balancing their product more due to the fact that its watered down nature seemed to affect ratings a lot last year (they blamed it on Lebron being on a crappy team but that's just PR). I just don't think traveling is where they'll stake out their ground.

    I expect it to get worse until they either revise their jumpshot rules, handcheck rules, or how they call the game in the paint for bigs vs. slashers. We're probably a few years from that. I think the jumpshot rules that were the final straw in this era of basketball came via a 'rules clarification' in like 2009 or 2010. If I were to hazard a guess I'd say they'll allow on-ball handchecking again in 2021 or 2022 - I don't think they want to allow off-ball handguarding again even though it's resulted in the very odd situation where the NBA is much less physical than college and Euro ball.

    The league doesn't need a new rule to contain Harden - all they needed to contain him was the playoffs.

    Let's just remove the requirement to dribble, it'll up the creativity.
