Alot of people wonder why players back then don't do crossover alot (some do it, but it's very rare), so here's two video about it.

The rules is seems to be more enforced on these days.

Yeah, I've seen those videos!

The first video proves ow strict the rules were when it came to dribbling. Had Pistol Pete played in today's game, he'd break two ankles a game.

The rules were mad strict.

And the second one is just for laughs. That LeBron play is a disgrace for basketball and it happens often in the NBA. Everything in favor of the offense...

***You should start those topics in the NBA history section though.

Yeah.. rules were very different back then. Refs called everything in favor of the defense...

However, to some extent we can't blame the refs. The league allows this kind of plays... and refs are forced to call by that standard.

the league's definition of carrying was more strict back then. if a player like lebron played in the 60's, he'd be screwed by that rule alone. haha!

Plenty of stars from nowadays would be f**ked if they had to play under those much stricter rules.

I think that first vid of LBJ was being kind, that was 4 steps with the ball and no dribbles.

^ He dribbled the ball and then he made 3 steps after that.  Big deal this happens all the time... For some reason Lebron always seems to be a target of traveling.  And by the way his crap dribble/hop-step is not a travel.  We've been over this before.

In your first sentence you talk about my first video, right? That's travelling and it's not debatable.

watch it again from 22 seconds. He dribbles, steps and then the guy counts 3 more. That step before the count is AFTER he dribbles the ball. He's collecting he when his foot hits the floor. That's four steps.

Here are two ridiculous, pathetic non-calls from the same game (Heat @ Lakers):

 

 

And here's is the most pathetic non call I've seen, honestly (PUT IT AT 3:40):

 

 

 

LMAO!!!

Yeah I watched that game, just how it is nowadays lol... LeBron as great as he is gets away with too many travels, not that some other guys don't get away too, nowadays.

LBJ gets away with most travels from all players in the league. It's that he's so quick that makes it a hard call.. plus he's a superstar, so he'll get away with it.
