Default LeBron James - The King (of traveling!)

Im not Lebron hater, but guy always travels and refs never call it. Cuz he's a superstar? I really wonder how much points would he get if refs call every traveling... Every time I see him at Top 10 it's always a fuc*in' traveling!!!

It's called NBA basketball, everyone travels, everyone. You only notice it more with the stars because they are always in the highlight reels.

really coz i saw him catch an alley-oop from boobie today in the top 10 reel, and i dn't think that was a travel unless travels can be called for flying to high.

So rather than actually debate his point through legitimate means you bring up the one instance in which LeBron can score without using proper footwork.

BS doesn't travel like he used to. Have seen him go several games without doing it.

where is this top 10 video with all the travels?

Bron covers so much ground with each step somtime I find myself thinking there is no way he could move so far of a distance with just one step. Sometimes it seems like he picks up the ball right inside the 3 point line and then still ends up at the basket laying it in. I'm not saying its travelling all the time, but it does make it hard to tell (except that gamewinning layup against the Wiz a few years back, that was obviously travelling). If the refs let you do it though, why not?

The NBA has been terrible about calling traveling and palming since the 80's. They also tend to overlook star centers spending 5-6 seconds parked in the lane. It's the nature of the game, sadly.

It's like holding in the NFL...technically illegal, but you are going to get away with unless you are blatant, or the refs are looking for a makeup call.

He, much like other NBA superstars, have very fast and powerful movements that make traveling difficult to call.

If they called travels they could call them on most possessions...its also the reason why half the fouls on Dwight Howard and Shaq arent really called..nba its FANNNtastic

That was 4-5 yrs. ago dumbass. Lebron is using the pro-hop right now, and i do not think it can be called as a traveling violation.

while I agree that the nba is generally more lenient with everybody, its pretty clear they let bron and other stars (wade's little extra hop anyone?) get away with much more than they would some scrub. yeah, he travels pretty much every time he drives. pretty annoying. I mean, why even make him dribble? I bet he could do some awesome **** if all he had to do was slam it home. Turn it into a spectacle.
