This dude is for real fucking retarded. You get one step and land with both feet at the same exact time with NO PIVOT ANYMORE BECAUSE YOU PICKED UP YOUR DRIBBLE, otherwise it's a TRAVEL

When ending his dribble a player may use a two count rhythm in coming to a stop, passing or shooting. The rules say nothing about hand placement. www.nba.com/analysis/rules_10.html

you can do 2 steps..simple....there is no zero step.....there is no hand position......2 step legal........Harden travel..........you can call Harden step if you dont want say 3. step :)..........every second step time the ball need to touch the floor......if do after is a travel....so even when he step back 2...to the second step in the same time the ball should touch the floor....but that never happen...even he step 3 the most more time..........NB@..... let him cheat :)

If this is legal then the NBA needs to address this and any other moves that exploit this in the rule books. I don't have a problem with refs missing borderline calls but this is getting ridiculous. The ridiculous traveling violations or exploits not being addressed, the flopping, and the "ticky tack" calls on fouls are just annoying to watch.

Idgaf how you explain it..."Gather step" and "zero step" both include the word step which usually equate to travels now. I disagree with the statement that all players use it. Rewind 10-15 years ago, gather step wasn't a thing. Everyone took the necessary dribble to keep it at 2 or they were called for travel. Players just lost fundamentals and became lazy. The NBA wanted a change in scoring so they created something to let it go. The travel is why Harden gets so much separation and foul calls. Guarding it looks like it should be stopped a step sooner than it actually is.

Even if the zero step wasn’t a travel(it is), then when you hop back again that is a travel because that is basically saying you can jump with the basketball then jump again and shoot.

Dude explains the rule and shows how harden does his stepback. Retards in the comments “still a travel” 🤣🤣 lmao what. The dude legit EXPLAINED THE RULE and showed it in slow motion. Get over it. Harden is just exploiting the rules to his advantage. The rest of the league should do the same tbh if they want change🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

Harden travels and carries all game and it's clear when you watch games and replays of his highlights every step back highlight his hands always under the ball plus 85% of his points come from flopping free throws

We should be talking about the fouls he draws
