In the NBA, the gather step is not the pivot. A player picking up his dribble with his right foot on the floor, the RF is the gather step (or zero step) and then he has two more steps (LF RF) to shoot or pass. If he comes to stop, the LF will be his pivot foot.

That would be a travel because the pivot foot returned, but any level worth talking about wants that gather given the benefit of the doubt.
The multiple NCAA clinics I've attended this year nobody has told us to be liberal with the gather. Nobody has told us anything in regards to gather. We were just told to call travels if they occur. I have never once in my 10 years as an NCAA official had any clinic or clinician tell us to be liberal with the gather. It has never been discussed.

Interesting, do you have an online link to this language? I don't find zero step on the NBA rulebook online.
