A quadruple dribble? Does the second, cancel out the first?

That Lebron knickname was awful, making this healine awful.

Both the submitter and approver should feel bad.

I see him use two hands to dribble/control the ball twice, yet he never picked the thing up and restarted.

Not sure what you 2 are seeing...

LeBronPaul JamesCartney's Heatles

If Lebron is Paul, I suppose Wade would have to be John, Bosh would be George, and ... Ray Allen is Ringo?

His spin around Superintendent Chalmers was also sweet.

Yeah pretty sure you can't dribble the ball off your body.

Oh the schadenfreude. I thought it would never come back after the last Heat title. But there is a possibility I never considered. Lebron and company losing many, many NBA finals. Let them in every year and have the West take it away. Let Lebron's legacy be that of the asterisk (short season) champion. Let's see more Wade flopping and post flopping indignation when the refs don't fall for it. Show us Bosh crying in the hall every year as we continue to not realize he's been trying to become some media thing for years now. Stop trying to make Bosh happen.

Drink in the tears Cleveland. Toronto, keep trying to remember that there was a guy you hated for a week, but what was his name again? What ever happened to him anyway? Didn't he joke around with the sideline reporters or something? Maybe?

That's also a double dribble, dribbling with two hands..

/Unless that's the joke.

Nope, didn't know that rule.

So awesome to see LeEgo get bested like that.

/no matter how hard he tries to rehab his image, I still hate him

Paul George was all over the place in the last round, and you save that particular LeBron joke for now?

/tends to call Paul George "Johnny Ringo"

It's kind of aguely stated in the rules, especially the NBA rules:

The dribble ends when the player:

Touches the ball simultaneously with both handsPermits the ball to come to rest while they are in control of itTouches the ball more than once while dribbling, before it touches the floor

So by rule one, as soon as you touch with both hands, the dribble 'ends', so you can START the dribble with two hands, but cannot dribble with two hands once you've already been dribbling.  You could potentially make a case for rule 3 as well.

I'm not a ref, but I've seen it called when players dribble with both hands.

Sorry about the formatting there, shoulda previewed.

It was a sweet shot but how he got there was pretty ugly.

It looks like at one point he possibly touches the ball with both hands during the dribble, but the right hand is obscured by Ginobili.  When he finally does fall to the ground, the ball bounces up to his chest and he tries to grab it with both hands.

He is unsuccessful in controlling it with both hands and it falls to the floor.  He then reaches for it and hits it and it bounces again before he picks it up in both hands and controls it.

That is not a double-dribble.  That is a fumble.  Players are not called for double dribble if they fumble the ball away and try to control it unless the fumbling aids in their movement on the court.  Parker was already stationary at that point, kneeling down on the ground.  The fumble did not occur while he was moving and was not an intentional act of dribbling.

Did he touch it with his right hand earlier when the view was screened out by Ginobili?  Possibly, but I doubt it.

Ugly play, but perfectly legal.

His fast break spin-move lay-up earlier in the game was an uncalled travel though.  He just did it so fast the refs didn't count the steps.  I'd like to see that in slo-mo.

Here it is: http://sports.yahoo.com/video/parker-spinning-hitting-224117357.html

That's a carry and then a three-step walk.

Like pretty much EVERY spinning layup move in the NBA, especially those of "king" James.

If you let one do it, you gotta let them all do it. Seems that they are.

This is the part that pretty much all pro basketball players do that pisses me off.  It's also why I love volleyball - in v-ball, if you try to sneak in a palm, you'll get called on it.  In basketball, they do it all over the farking place and no one cares.  I'll start watching basketball again when they just get rid of dribbling altogether, since they don't give a shiat about the rules for it.

It was so fast I don't think anyone would have called it.  LeBron had a classic four-step drive a couple plays later that went uncalled, as usual.  The Parker spin is basically completely legal how the NBA has been called for years and years now, at least two and a half decades, maybe more.
