No better way to honor the man I'm missing than to start back off with an NBA post.
The NBA will finally officially allow something they have been unofficially allowing for years:
The NBA has put into writing a rule allowing players on the move to gather the ball, after driving or catching it, and then take two steps. Throughout NBA history, the rulebook said players could take one step.There is no word on whether Patrick Ewing and Micahel Jordan will come out of retirement to see if they can now get away with three steps.
The new rule reads, in part: "A 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."
