As time wound down in the first quarter of 76ers vs. Heat Game 1 on Saturday, Robert Covington caught a pass, pump-faked, side-stepped, then shot a three. It was cash, but it d— sure should not have counted.

Let me make something clear right now: Under no circumstances is this play NOT a travel.

And it’s not just me that thinks so:

Sure, players push the travel call these days with euro-steps and side-steps, but those all come after a dribble. Covington had the nerve, no the gall, to side-step without taking a dribble, and nobody blew the whistle.

We might as well just throw the travel rule out the window.
