Default NBA to Change Traveling For LeBron Crab Move?

NBA To Change Traveling For LeBron Crab Move?

OK, they’re not admitting that the changes are being made just for LeBron James, but it’s pretty clear he’s probably the impetus behind a recent announcement that the NBA will investigate re-writing its traveling rules, a modification that would make the “crab dribble” legal once again.

The clearest indication that the rule is being pushed by James infamous tirade after he was called for travelling despite a “crab dribble” is the claim that the league may officially allow two steps instead of one. That would pave the way to recognize the crab dribble as a legitimate move, since it requires, at best, two steps. Of course, nearly every drive down an NBA lane includes two steps at this point, so legalizing that probably just means that NBA players will be upset if they’re called for travelling for three steps next year, but that’s another story.

I never knew exactly how many steps, but I could just tell if a guy traveled. Call it the look test. Do you all think this rule change is really specifically for LeBron? And yay or nay?

So I did some research on the crab dribble: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpQBD672HkQ

Looking at that video, it clearly looks like a walk to me. He's taking at least 3 steps. :wtf:
