The Lebron James Rule

2

I wasn't going to post this link because this rumor has already been linked to via SLAM in the previous fanshot, but I feel the need to post it for the main content of the article. By putting in writing the Lebron James method of terminating ones dribble (i.e. always taking three+ steps) as a legal maneuver, the league has opted to allow the floodgates to open vis a vis sloppy footwork. For years now, Lebron has taken the liberty of terminating his dribble at the three point line with no vision of his teammates, taking two to three steps to determine if he will pass or shoot, and then taking an additional step or two to reach the basket if no player becomes available to pass to. With the rule change, we can now reasonably assume he will be allowed 5-7 steps without dribbling on most occasions. Conversely, any warriors player taking more than 2 steps or attempting to (gasp) jump stop, will be immediately suspended by the league and fined accordingly.
