    Loved the slam. Have watched the replay several times and get dizzy.
    Could someone kindly explain how that footwork does not get a travel call?
    That spin is like what Scola does - and hasn't he been called on it for travelling? Or had been until the refs figured out - what?

    When I saw this live I started screaming at the tv.

    I got so excited I started pounding my chest and felt like I dunked on McRoberts! :grin:

    When Jordan dunked it after the spin move, I jumped up from the couch, hit my chest and started waving a towel around. I then quietly sat back down and enjoyed the rest of the game.

    Hate to say it but the first video was an obvious travel or was there a crab dribble in there?

    He needs to start going into the move as soon as he gets the ball. Don't hesitate.

    Wow I just noticed he traveled on the spin. He switched his pivot foot. Nice, but would be better without the traveling.

    Are you sure, because he was dribbling the ball, not sure that counts as a pivot foot switch.

    After the dribble he took 2 steps to dunk......I don't know...hard to tell.

    I am liking this guys potential. But this team is reminding me all over again of the old Steve Francis, Cat Mobley, Kevin Cato.

    Steve Francis-Aaaron Brooks
    Kevin Martin-Cat Mobley
    Jordan Hill-Kato

    Looks like a recipe for lottery

    the crab dribble is total bull****. The reason that call wasn't a travel is because Hill uses a jab step to create room, then he puts the ball on the floor. Right after his drop step dribble, he takes 2 steps. Just ignore that fact that he does a spin move and look at how many steps he takes after his puts the ball on the floor.

    His whole game is hesitation and uncertainty at times he needs more playing time so he can comfortable thats where hes really going to shine.

    hard to tell but I do think he traveled. But if it's so hard to tell in a replay its probably impossible to tell in real time when it happened so good no call. Plus there are far worst traveling violations that happen all the time that never get called
