Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal appeared to travel when he took four steps and lost control of the ball during a drive in Monday’s game against the Detroit Pistons and anybody with two working eyes could see that it was a travel.
Despite what your eyes saw in that video, the official NBA referees Twitter took to social media and defended the play, stating, “The offensive player gathers with his right foot on the ground. He then takes two legal steps before losing control of the ball. After regaining possession, a player is allowed to regain his pivot foot and pass or shoot prior to that foot returning to the ground. This is legal.”
Beal finished with 32 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and four steps that is apparently not a travel in the NBA.
