They say that superstars get the calls, but this is just silly!
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James got away with a crazy traveling violation on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz, and immediately went viral. He was dribbling the ball past half court when he proceeded to take 3 1/2 steps before the ball hit the floor again.

After the game, he admitted the error was one of the “worst things” he’s ever done in his career.
“It was the worst thing, probably one of the worst things I’ve ever done in my career,” James said after the game, essentially admitting his final line of 20 points, 12 assists and just one turnover should have included a second turnover. “I didn’t realize I did it until halftime. One of my coaches showed me.”
“I feel bad for the refs on that one because they’ll probably get a write-up on that or something,” James said. “That was pretty bad.”
