    Giannis has been getting away with all these travels all year and frankly enough is enough.

    If referees aren’t capable of determining what is a travel and what isn’t then they just need to ban the Eurostep entirely. That last move made an absolute mockery of the sport.

    they just replayed it and he didnt travel. he’s just long af.

  • mtdurham

    when the refs let an extra step go on a breakaway dunk in December its one thing but you’re essentially allowing a player to be unguardable even when TWO defenders are set… that’s a joke… and im not a Giannis hater or anything its just ruining the game and is not in the spirit of the rules

    Three freaking steps all in different directions? I could average 10 ppg in the nba if that’s allowed

    uh no… they replayed it twice and the announcers on the raps stream clearly pointed out the travel…

    Wasn’t even close to a travel.

    apparently that’s what Jeremy Lin thinks

    it was not a travel

    the homers on the Toronto telecast supporting the Raptors baseless complaining? Shocking

  • yisman

    I’ve watched the Raptors telecast on TSN in the past and it’s hard to listen to.

    There is the link to the play. Clearly only two steps.

    umm no, reggie and Chris said it wasnt a travel. it was 2 steps

    he’s talking about the homers on the Toronto stream

    obviously the TNT guys acknowledged it wasn’t a travel

    Effing kidding me? Night is over and itโ€™s only Q1. Gasol….really?

    he hasn’t done anything since the first 5 minutes so you’re good

    That isn’t the travel I was referring to. That play looks okay,

    The play where he sidestepped lowry was a clear, clear travel… in real time and in slow motion replay. Three steps is a travel. The nba is what I watch.

    Even in the NBA (which admittedly allows a few travels here and there) that was an egregious travel….

    Two steps

  • yisman

    Big time flop from Gasol there

  • yisman

    Green and Giannis massive busts

    combined to score 6 points

    Two steps

    okay so lets say I give him the “gather” and don’t count the first step… fair enough…. how is it not up and down? his foot clearly leaves the floor before his 2nd step hits… that’s why its a travel… he’s jumping in the air off his right foot then coming down on his left foot then going back up… that’s a travel if anyone else does it at any level of basketball…

    the nba sanctioned this crap to increase scoring and make it more like international basketball.. .and now its ruining the game because everyone is exploiting the rule and using it to travel on every play…. its one thing when manu ginobili travels but when giannis travels 5 times a game he’s unguadable

  • tmarohl

    Because the other foot never came down.

  • mtdurham

    @tmarohl said...

    Because the other foot never came down.

    if both feet leave the ground and one foot comes back down its a travel…. cut & dry travel… its a travesty and its getting worse every year

  • mtdurham

    ok back to the game… why in the world are they playing norman powell? its cramping their offense completely

  • jcotdl

    In fairness, haven’t past generations been criticizing travel calls as long as anyone can remember?? My dad has literally been hammering that point for 40 years..

  • damionismyname

    Danny Green is done, hang it up after this run bro.
