    It really isn't.

    People don't seem to understand the gather step.

    I'm quite surprised even this one is not considered as a travel. As I said earlier, most of Harden's stepbacks are completely fine. There may be like 10% of his moves that are borderline cases, but those are exceptions, not the norm.

    How can anyone even tell what a travel is anymore? How about a foul in the act of shooting? What about moving screens? There's no consistency to any of it.

    It's gotten as bad as defining a catch in the NFL.

    it really shouldn't be that difficult to understand. the average everyday player does the same exact motion going forward and its perfectly legal.

    harden does it backwards and bc he has the footwork, people think its a travel lol

    how is it weird I'm a huge basketball fan and I'm going to be truthful. Harden is a beast but that move is a travel. If Harden was on any other team all you'll would be disgusted by the move.

    He travels on some and does not on others. There was one step back 3 last night that was a travel.

    I knew Nunn was a hack. And the guys in that thread who call themselves Rockets fans....do not doubt James Harden.
