Traveling defined the Duke Basketball way
Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 24, 2009
For some reason a lot of people claim Duke gets preferred treatment from the officials at times. Like with this video above. Sure freshman guard Elliot Williams took a few extra steps…but 12? I’m not sure about that. I mean one can go six feet without actually dribbling the ball in less than 12 steps, right?
Some call it an “unfair advantage” and say things like this violates the “spirit of the game” but this is just basketball done the Blue Devil way. Ever watch a NBA game? You can go about 30 steps without getting called.
Besides, Tyler Hansbrough calls that “gritty”.
Honestly there’s no question he traveled however give the guy some credit, he’s bringing back the moonwalk.
