The Most Blatant Ignored Walk in Basketball History

hqdefault

Like you, I have watched a lot of basketball in my life. And like you, I have seen a lot of plays that I was certain were travels, but yet were ignored by officials. However last night, the Thunder’s DJ Augustin gave us the most blatant no-call walk in the history of basketball. I challenge you to watch this video and not shake your head in shock as Augustin takes one dribble from half court and makes a layup. Notice that the whistle blown is not for a travel, but rather for goaltending, which the officials did see. Put this one in your brain, you may never see a no-call six step travel again in your lifetime.

    I only see 4 steps after the bounce, but it’s still too many.

    Actually I see this all the time. Just google Kendrick Perkins or Chauncey Billups travel. Corey Brewer had a 7 step travel a year ago. D-Wade has a few bad ones too.

    I once watched a D1 game where the guy carried the ball above his head with both hands from the three point line to the goal. No call. It was almost a thing of beauty.

    that lasted long enough that they could have video-reviewed the play while it was still going on.

    Yeah, we can pretty much file the Traveling Rule for NBA alongside the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Tenth Amendments.

    I quit watching pro ball some years ago directly due to the officiating. It is easily the worst of any major sport.
