Travel on the Perimeter, lifts pivot foot before releasing the ball (jab step)

This is an example of a traveling violation for lifting the pivot foot. An offensive player who receives the ball and establishes a pivot foot 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 lifts his pivot foot of the floor. On this play, the offensive player establishes his left foot as his pivot foot, and he then lifts and steps with his pivot foot prior to his dribble being released. This is a traveling violation.
