    That would it. The only thing that's different about it is the last step goes to the side rather than straight forward.

    Clyde, I don't think the Euro step shown is illegal at all. As I said before nice move! I can think of a youngster I wish could perfect that... a la Rajon Rondo!

    I agree. Legal.

    I've rarely seen it called. It happens so quickly that it's hard sometimes for your brain to process.

    I understand the logic of calling this a travelling violation, but players have been making this move since Earl the Pearl Monroe was in his prime. As is often the case, I suppose this is one of those infamous "points of emphasis" going into this season. Was it a state-wide, nation-wide or association-wide directive to clean up this "move"? It certainly has not been called consistently among the officials I have seen this year...meaning some officials DO make the call consistently, and some NEVER make the call at all. I guess if you have a player who has this as a favorite move, he may get by with it five games in a row, but may get called for travelling every time he does it the next night.

    9/10 times that's going to be a no call.

    In the video I think the move from 1:00 to 1:05 was legal, but the video states otherwise. It may be a travel by rule, but again, one that goes uncalled most of the time. As for the last one I think the ref called a travel because he might have seen a step right before the European 2-step move.

    It's not legal and the referee called a travel on the play.

    I know this is talk about the spin move but IMO the Euro step when done correctly is not a traveling violation. When someone adds in an extra step it is an easy call but two steps are two steps regardles of direction.

    Beside the bolded part is where I stated that it may be a travel by rule, but it's one that goes uncalled most of the time.

    Yes, that's true and I think there may have been a debatable step right before the Euro step on that last play, which is why it may have been called.
