Video: Giannis Antetokounmpo shockingly got called for traveling on this play
The NBA is notorious for not calling minor infractions, especially against superstars. That’s why it was so surprising to see the officials in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday call Giannis Antetokounmpo for traveling.
The Milwaukee Bucks were taking the ball out against the Phoenix Suns following a Cameron Payne 3-pointer to make it 29-21. Antetokounmpo let the ball roll up the court before picking it up. He then easily took 2-3 steps before dribbling.

Yes, that’s usually something the officials would let go. But they actually called it this time.
