Let’s be perfectly clear about this. Unequivocally, this is nothing more than a wording update to the rule so it reads correctly. For more than 50 years, every level and brand of basketball has allowed 2 steps after the gather of the ball. There is no controversy here. NONE. Anyone who tries to make a controversy out of it is doing so either to have something to talk about, or to complain about a league or sport they already dislike. I don’t see anyone up in arms that Little League, High School, College, or European teams take two steps before the shot or pass. It’s ridiculous that there actually be criticism of the NBA for fixing the wording of a long standing rule.
That is all.
