“This is an example of a traveling violation after a player has gathered the ball. The offensive player, Blake Griffin, ends his dribble and he gathers the ball while he’s in the air. He then lands with both feet for his first two steps, and takes two additional steps before releasing the ball on his field goal attempt. This is a traveling violation. A progressing player may only take 2 legal steps after gathering the ball to either shoot, pass or come to a stop. “
