According to LeBron James, what he did last night in the waning moments of the Cavs/Wiz game was perfectly legal. Hell, he trademarked it. So don’t even try to steal it! It’s called a “crab dribble”, whatever that means, and here it is, for your viewing pleasure:
With all due respect, Mr. Crab, that sure looks like a travel to me.
One person who enjoyed the call more than others was Washington’s DeShawn Stevenson. Here’s what he had to say about it and the man who committed the violation, via the DC Sports Bog:
“I don’t care,” DeShawn said. “It’s whatever. I don’t like him. I don’t like that dude.”
Caron Butler brushed off DeShawn’s comments and said this “feud” is going to be life-long (fun!), and besides, he was far too busy thanking God for the refs finally calling a travel on Mr. James.
