  • Coach Nick welcomes back to the show Ronnie Nunn, an NBA referee for 19 years, Head Of Officials for 5 years, and Director Of Development for 3 more to discuss Giannis Antetokounmpo's euro step in the open court. Is it a travel, or is he simply following the age old rules of basketball?

      @meg Ronnie keeps showing the video of Giannis making his moves against the Nets, show some other videos where he does take about 3/1/2 steps.

      He travels. For breakdown with Ronnie Nunn we kept getting the same highlight where no travel takes place. Why not breakdown the opening montage of moves in this upload instead where we clearly see him travel?

                        He travels. It's not always a travel but more often than not he travels. And shame on this ref for trying to say it's exactly what Dr. J did. No it is not, GTFOH with that. This is new-age officiating is horrible and it's no wonder they get so many calls wrong .

                          He still takes extra steps at times (not saying all the time) and gets away with it too much.

                            All im going to say is this look at Manu Ginobili, he is the father of the eurostep, Manu never took 3 steps per dribble to do this move. So how or why is Giannis taking 3 steps is not a travel if Manu only took 2 steps after a dribble during a Eurostep.

                                                    In the 1980s it seemed the NBA started accommodating the stars . It was different prior . For example when Wilt Chamberlain started playing . NBA rules allowed a dunk from the foul line . As great as wilt was he could not shoot fouls shots . So With his long arms and legs he just jumped from foul line and dunked it . They changed the rule so you could not do that to make it fairer for the smaller players . However when Magic Johnson came in the NBA back in the 70s the way he dribbled the ball would be called carrying and the ball would be given to the opposing team however with no foul shots of course . Also Larry Bird would get away with sneaky fouls .

But there are so many times where there are 4 steps including his gather. That is a travel and those plays are so unfair because on the 3 step u know hes supposed to go up so when another step comes the defender has NO IDEA. the one where Jeremy lin was demonstrating the travel after, that one was a clear travel. Guys get away with it when they do it quick, and smoothly without a hitch. If u travel and it looks awkward like you're not used to taking 4 steps, then it's easier for the refs to catch it. But Giannis does his 4 step euros so often that he does them fluidly. Some of his euros are legal like every one in this video. Bballbreakdown does seem to have a lot of favoritism for Giannis IMO. But I love coach nick and this channel. Learning the X's & O's from him is so awesome.
