  1. Some of these moves are effective. But If I actually use one of these move in the local gym, people are gonna start arguing with me, that’s a fact.

  2. That play around 7:15 is travel. For two reasons: a. It’s not clear enough that the first step is the gather step. B. Once he lands on his right foot, that’s his pivot foot. He can’t move on to his left foot. So make up your mind: is there a pivot rule on lay ups, or not?

  3. I thought the rule was after gathering the ball you could have two steps to jump but had to release the ball before landing (any of your feet touching the floor), mmm.🤔

  4. The refs at my rec centre should watch this video. I did most of those moves and they always say I travel. They don’t even count the steps. To them if you are in the air that’s a jumpshot

  5. I’ve called so many travels incorrectly at the park I feel ashamed.. i wish to travel back in time and undo my follies..

  6. while these moves are cool and all, i don’t know if i want to take the time to learn any of them knowing people are going to call travel anyways. Then having to take the time to explain to them what i did and how its legal and then pulling out this video during a game to prove my point lol

  7. I’m sorry but in Europe this is not legal… 100% travel here in Italy and in europe! Only in NBA There are litterally 3 steps for a layup motion! Sorry guys!

  8. Is it legal?: I HAVE NO MORE STEPS I’M SHOOTING, BUT I SEE SOMEONE WILL BLOCK ME SO I STOP IN AIR AND FLYING DOWN, IS TRAVEL? IF I NEARLY HIT THE GROND AND PASS IN ONE TIME?

  9. The reason why we don’t see this type of move being used in nba level games is because it is extremely dangerous and painful to properly excute, the risk of an injury just outweighs the advantage it may bring and with nba players nowdays having hundreds of ways to score this move is pretty much useless, wanna pull this off in a balling session with friends? sure why not, but in a professional match? hell no

  10. @BBALLBREAKDOWN Coach, the problem with these moves are that if you jump that “HIGH” as it is shown in the clips you’ll be jumping into the arms of the defender or even allow an easy way to draw a charge. Most of the referees in europe calls traveling violation if you jump into a defender and hang in the air a little without getting another quick step. However, it is certainly creative to add into arsenal for a better way of “euro” stepping in my opinion. Btw thank you for the content and showing people ways to get creative.

  11. I’m very curious to see an nba player attempt that first move (hop launch step) in a game and see how it turns out.

  12. legal or not ; who when and where are you gonna use a move like that? 90% of the time you gonna have a defender in front of you plus if the help defense slides or jumps. You only making the shot more difficult in my opinion.

  13. Defense is just terrible now. They did that shit on the court and we swatted that mess out of bounds. Their lift is crippled and they stuck most times. It’s crafty however.

  14. It’s legal, but it looks dangerous landing on one leg after a full jump. Compound this over the course of 82 games and it seems like a recipe for disaster if done consistently.

    That being said, if it’s done maybe once a game, I could see that being sustainable. It’s not like people use the same gathers every single drive. It would make for some good highlights.

  15. I got it, Coach. If Ref Ronnie says so, and he knows the rule way better than me, then it’s not travel.

    Nevertheless, one must think… If something looks like a rat, smells like a rat and acts like a rat, well… Maybe the rule should be more specific to limit the kind of rats allowed into the game. I’m saying this mostly for the fun of it, of course. I understand that being creative to overcome the defense within the rules’ boundaries is essential to keep the game alive and interesting for each new generation of bball admirers.

  16. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 We’re seriously calling someone who is clearly jumping taking a step. This is worse than the NFL calling a catch. This is not basketball is alm I have to say. Hilarious seriously.

  17. All this shit is up and down in street terms and plain old traveling you can’t jump in the air come down and keep dribbling LOL
