Traveling Violations in Basketball Games

Traveling offense in a basketball game is a violation because a player carries the ball more than two steps without dribbling. A  player  carrying basketball by running without dribbling. When a game holds a basketball he does not move the ball to another place by foot. Able to hold the ball but can only do pivot movements only.



When a basketball player catches the ball, immediately notice the pivot legs, if he moves the right leg to spin then the axis is the left foot. Conversely, if used to move and rotate is the left leg then the axis is the right foot. So to identify whether there is a violation of traveling or not enough to see one foot is used as a pivot. If a player takes this axle before releasing a basketball to dribble, then he has committed a Traveling offense.

On the drive to the basket, when a player dribbled and then held the ball with both hands, he allowed 2 steps before firing a shot or shooting. Counting the steps: 1-2 may; 1-2 - 3 not. If you get 3 and the offensive player still holds the ball, then the player has committed a traveling violation.

In basketball games the players always move quickly, making it difficult to identify whether a player is traveling or not. This requires the accuracy of the referees in the game of basketball.
