    As octothorp said, Kawhi caught the ball and during that motion you're allowed to "gather" yourself...once we had full possession and began taking a new route, he only takes 2 steps before the first dribble leaves his hand.

    It's not traveling. It's KIND OF close, but if Tony Brothers called Kawhi for traveling in that moment, giving Philly the last shot, he better get to traveling, FAST. He might need a police escort all the way out of Canada.

    Besides, he was good. Philly already covered the spread, and the biggest star in the series was set to advance. His work here was done

    Excuses.

    players travel all the time.
    The refs could call travelling on every other possession if they wanted to do so.... just like they could call fouls basically every time down the floor. But some people have to try to diminish everything.

    Yeah, I've seen that comment. L2M report didn't call it a missed call. (Only acknowledged incorrect call was a missed shooting foul on Reddick at :41 that could have put Toronto up 5, so bitter Sixers fans should realize that they definitely did benefit from a missed call). A player who catches a pass while on the move is allowed until his second step to begin his dribble. I think his right foot is down when he catches the pass, he steps with his left, and then steps with his right again (the step on the logo) around the same time he releases the ball to begin his dribble. It's extremely close by the letter of the law, but the reality is that far more egregious catch-and-dribble violations go uncalled all the time, and the NBA isn't about to crack down on those.
    Thanks for this insight!

    What are some people's thoughts/opinions on the claim (from embittered Philly fans and Americans in general), that Kawhi travelled after the inbound pass?

    If Kawhi stays, I would not mind snatching players like Mike Scott, Ennis and the Celtics Morris, long players with decent defense and threat from the outside. These kind of players to round out the bench supporting Superman.

    Best and Worst Awards


    - Worst performance: I had to give this to Greg Monroe. The Sixers backup center graded out at a minus-9 in 1 minute, 41 seconds of action. He also turned the ball over and missed his one field-goal attempt during his brief time on the floor.
    Masai knew when he released Monroe that he would eventually end up with the Sixers, torpedo us somewhat in a prior game to fully gain the Sixers trust and then turn on them like a Raptor secret double agent
Working...
