Did anyone else wince or get nervous when you saw the video?

Yes I was.  I think I'll always be nervous about it.  I'm scarred for life.

I think I will as well. Not because of the injury. I've seen him play many times, going back to Butler days. The reason I'll be worried is because from watching his highlight videos (all the dunks and blocked shots) GH tends to land awkward A LOT. I think his landings had something to do with his injury. I know he got knocked off balance by Jae and LBJ and that led to his awkward landing but every time he lands a little off balance I'll be nervous for him.

I call travelling!

When?

Little hop right when he makes his first move.

You mean before he had possession?

Thatís not a travel.
Yeah, he was in the air when he caught it. That would never be called a travel. Or I hope it wouldn't

It looked to me like the kind of move NBA refs are peevish about.  Horford gets called for it a lot.  Hayward did it fluidly, but it was still the same move.  I mentioned it kind of jokingly,I think itís awesome that heís dunking regardless of how he gets there, but after the comments I went back and watched frame by frame.  When he catches the ball he has his left foot in the air, but his right foot is still touching the floor.  From there he brings both feet off the ground quickly, lands, then makes his move to the hoop.   

Iíll stand by my initial call.  Itís a travel!

And thatís probably the deepest analysis Iíve offered on this site in years.  Wish Iíd saved that energy for something a tad more meaningful.

Itís still not a travel. Are you saying that his pivot foot is his right foot (which he is in the midst of a hop while catching the ball)? Just because the ball has touched his hands doesnít mean he has gained possession yet. Then he pushed off with the left.

A superstar or undrafted rookie, neither are getting called for a travel on that exact play.

And if you still think thatís a travel, I suppose you think about 40 travels a game should be called.

Nothing like a discussion about traveling on video of a man practicing basketball to while away the hours.

Seriously, you guys didn't get that Redz initial post was a joke?

I did but was just commenting on the lack of any basketball news or excitement right now. I can hardly wait until camps begin!

Yep...We need some hoops for real!

And, yes, I was joking, but then I did go back and actually take some time out of my day to watch it frame by frame, and while I MAY submit that it would be unlikely to be called in game time action, I do think he has two feet leave the ground while in possession of the ball without the next move being a shot or a half step leading to a shot.

Perhaps a separate thread  ;D

Without taking a position one way or the other whether Hayward's initial move was a travel, it's good to see that he elevated quite well for the contested dunk absorbing contact below and at the rim. 

I know, I know it was just a 1-on-1 practice session but it will serve him well during 5-on-5 practices and then later during real games knowing that he can "still do it".
