As long as I can remember, people have complained about traveling in the NBA. "They never call it!" they say. Well Tuesday in Denver, it was called and it's a darn shame it was.

Chauncey Billups swished a 75-foot shot at the end of the second quarter, something that was truly incredible. But he took a hop, step, a crab dribble and switched pivots all on the way to the heave. The video:



Of course that was the right call and no I don't actually wish it wasn't called. The ball still went in and it's still very impressive. But the fact it didn't count just kind of taints it. I guess it's a lot like a Barry Bonds home run.
