Two steps? Only in dancing

The Texas Two-Step is a dance that really isn't all that exciting but its where more than one step is allowed before the action happens. In basketball, well, that isn't the story so much anymore.

The rule allows players to take two steps before dribbling, passing, whining, or dunking. It also gives my sister a better chance at making it to the NBA as well. It is so ridiculous that they have to conform to the complaints of those playing in the NBA. But I guess it has been a long time coming. All the NBA greats from Chamberlain, Johnson, and even MJ have gotten away with it but now it happens all the time. I guess it doesn't even matter because the refs never called it to begin with. You have Lebron and Kobe going 25 feet to the basket and getting there without the ball ever hitting the ground.

I guess it comes down to "how can we make more money? Oh, dunks." People love a good show and this new rule is going to allow the greatest show on earth to give away tickets for free.

I say make the players earn their money the old fashioned way.

I say take this rule and throw it under the feet of those who are actually traveling.

But what do I know? I am just a skinny, white boy who can't dunk.
