Are you supposed to be allowed to take 1.5 steps backwards from just beyond the free throw line to the 3 point line with no dribbles off a rebound without getting called for a travel? Apparently you are if you're LeBron James. After consecutive plays of James bulling his way to the basket, creating the contact to draw a foul, which Paul Pierce wasn't permitted to do tonight, James missed a foul shot and the ball was bounced back to him. He was about one foot behind the free throw line. The NBA 3 point line is 23 feet 9 inches from the top. That means LeBron was allowed to travel about 6.5 feet to shoot a 3 pointer.

Jazz were up 12 in this one with just over 3 minutes to go and lost (had a miraculous comeback win)*. Pretty similar to the Flakers agains the Bucks earlier, when they were down 6 with 1:06 to go.

I don't think I can take this anymore. I'maboutthisclose to not watching basketball anymore because of the officiating. It's disgusting.

*I posted this with the Cavs up 6 with 30 seconds to go.  I shut the game off in frustration but as you know, Jazz won this one.  I LOVE this game lol!

From now on when TBdamus makes a prediction just say, "Sundiata."

    I agree on the travel but I left the game on and Utah just pulled off a miracle three by Sundiata Gaines.

    That was a travel even by Lebron standards, how was that not called. Thankfully they lost anyway, great shot by Gaines
