4.25.2 vs. 4.44.3A

I need a video clip or two showing the difference between "preventing the release" before returning to the floor (held ball ruling) and "merely touching the ball" before returning to the floor (traveling ruling).
Anybody got a link to anything like that?

For you young'uns, here's what Freddy is talking about:

When an airborne player keeps control of an attempted shot that is blocked, is unable to release the ball, and returns to the floor with it, that player has not traveled; it is a held ball. If, in a similar situation, the defender simply touches the ball, the airborne shooter maintains control of the ball, chooses not to release the ball, and returns to the floor holding the ball, it’s a traveling violation. If, in a similar situation, the shooter loses control of the ball because of the block, then this is simply a blocked shot, the release ends team control. It is not a violation for that player to start another dribble at that point. When an airborne player tries for goal, sees that the try will be blocked, purposely drops the ball, and touches the ball after it hits the floor, that player has traveled by starting a dribble with the pivot foot off the floor.
