There's another doozy linked from that same page.

Numerous traveling calls spoil tourney — Maine Sports — Bangor Daily News

........they have called so many traveling violations it makes my head spin.
News flash: the game has changed over the past hundred years to become faster-paced and more explosive. At the professional and collegiate level, players are granted certain “hop steps” as they handle the basketball, and only an archaic understanding of the rules would now take issue with their maneuvers.

I saw a number of kids trying it out successfully in the tournament, perfectly imitating what they watch their heroes do on TV, only to get whistled for traveling before finishing a beautiful move.

I just saw five guys use that move in a college game the other day, and no one was called for traveling.
I swear, Gus, you'd argue with a possum.
It'd be easier than arguing with you, Woodrow.
