  • While Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs is undoubtedly one of the best players in the NBA today, he is part of a fraternity that gets away with all sort of creative footwork. Of course, HE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE, but for someone with normally flawless footwork, it was a bit surprising to see how he's moving his feet on the catch.

      BBALLBREAKDOWN Are you serious? These clips are clearly travels. I like Kahwahi, but this is ridiculous. You have to call games fair.

      So the dirty little secret is he travels? Geez. Send this to the refs.

      BBALLBREAKDOWN everyone's favorite players travel, and that's a fact. Don't try and expose the few times he travels. It's like once a game, Isaiah Thomas Carrys the ball each possession

      BBALLBREAKDOWN I've seen irving pick up his pivot foot on his highlights

  • Birdie Brown

    That’s why he’s stays quite less attention

    • Birdie Brown

      He does it automatically so it don’t register in his head so there’s not hesitation so the ref doesn’t understand

        Here on this clip, one can argue that, similar to other bbbreakdown "travel" clips, in most of this situations he didn't killed off his dribble and thus he had one step extra, or he wasn't in a total control after killing the dribble of the ball so he had an extra step, like most of Lebron, Giannis and Harden travels are justified.

        I mean it's idiotic, but that's how Antetokounmpo 3 steps "travels" are expalined, and Harden's double stepbacks...

        I would use the same criteria for all players, if Antetokunmpo 3 steps and Harden's double stepback are not travels, than Kawhi's moves are not travel as well...

          It’s 25% Kawhi’s fault because if the refs call it more he will do it less

Ha why your tripping me he is my idol and im not only his fans all then you will say that's a travel even one of the fans knows how to play basketball you know who me im his supporter then you are the hater.Supporter vs Hater= me supporter knows the rules but not only the rules but also the plays so do not say that's a travel and dont say that im only a supporter im a player too im from philippines im watching their plays but it doesn't mean iknow all the calls im a kid but please do not say that is a travel. it pisses me off when your saying that is a travel i watch the video i see his foot after his one step he pivot his left so the referee would not call a travel the referee in nba is a proffesional too because their not in streetball they are in nba so they are proffesionals they can see their hands elbows hands feet knee head im not good at memorizing calls but i know the pivot that is basic. You your a coach you dont know the basics then stop playing basketball do not waste your time of that youtube stuff that is making you distracted

                                                                  • R-TEX

                                                                              P.S. After reading the other comments it appears that this video singles out one of the most talented players for breaking the rules. Others do it too, just not as well. Case closed.
