That's gotta be traveling, right?

Nope. It's a little known clause in the rule book: Section 34, paragraph 6, subsection B "in the event of sheer pants-shitting awesomeness, traveling will not apply".

I played basketball extensively in growing up in England, and my impression of any American basketball I ever saw televised was that the players get away with murder with respect to traveling.

That said - I don't see any problem with this move at all. When in his possession, the ball is constantly dribbled. If you look closely, the way he sets himself up is to bounce the ball off the court rather than throwing it to himself - mid-dribble, so to speak. Which is just insane.

I just want to feel like I've owned something so completely for once in my life. The perfect confluence of opportunity, vision, and skill. If it ever happens it'll be one amazing piece of code.
