16 or 17? However many steps Josh Smith took, it was way more than 2. I’m assuming the refs didn’t call it because he wasn’t making a move but when you see a player slowly moving backwards for a few seconds, you got to call something.
As Shaqtin a fool worthy as this was, this isn’t even Smith’s best travel. That happened back in 2010, when he posterized Kim K’s ex and was rewarded with a foul and the NBA play of the day.
