This play is an example of a traveling violation that occurs in the post area. The offensive player here slides his right pivot foot prior to releasing the ball on his dribble, and thus, he commits a traveling violation. Once the offensive player established a pivot foot, he may move his other foot as many times as he chooses, but the ball must be out of his hands to start his dribble BEFORE he moves or lifts his pivot foot. This is a traveling violation.
