I disagree. I think they call far more travels than they used to.Not calling travelling in general anymore...guys switch pivot feet and take extra steps all the time now.
Most of it stems from guys doing the scissor-step when they catch the ball on the wing. When a player doesn’t have to establish a pivot foot before making their move, they can’t be guarded. There were several years when guys first started doing that where it was never called. Then, refs caught on and you see it called all the time now.
Traveling when going upnfor a lay-up or jam? Yeah, they miss that one a lot. But TBH, that doesn’t give the player nearly the advantage that the scissor-step does. If a guy is defending a player driving to the basket, they’re not as likely to even notice their steps.
