Travel on the perimeter, too many steps after receiving the ball

This is an example of a traveling violation after receiving the ball. An offensive player who receives the ball while he is progressing or upon completion of a dribble may take two steps in coming to a stop, passing or shooting the ball. He must release the ball to start his dribble before his second step. On this play, the offensive player who receives the ball takes more than two steps before releasing the ball on the field goal attempt. This is a traveling violation.
