Default Bad Call?

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=290104027

Hilarious finish to the Wizards/Cavaliers game tonight. Lebron drove the lane, took what looked to be 3 steps on first glance, but they won't call him for that, right?

Unfortunately for Lebron, the refs did not give him an And 1 extra scoring opportunity, but instead, amazingly, called him for a traveling violation.

If you watch the video with the recap, you can see Lebron take his steps. I say a definite 3, Lebron begged to differ and called his move a "crab dribble".

I just can't believe how much he was complaining about it afterwards and had the audacity to be so adamant about it being a bad call. Even if he felt wronged, why not chalk it up to "I get pretty much every other call, even if it was bad, they still need to do hundreds to make up for what they have given me"?

Caron Butler's comments on it were great,

"I definitely knew he traveled, but I didn't know they were going to call it," Butler said about what happened Sunday. "That was one of them situations in which a great player made a move, good officiating, and they called the call. And I was like, 'Oh, man, there is a God.' "

The NBA still gives calls to stars, it's a star-driven league. I agree with you.
