  • This is a complex move in the NBA that requires the player to take more than 2 steps after the ball has been dribbled. It does not result in a travel violation. The common crab is the inspiration for its name. They naturally have 8 legs. An excellent crab dribble will include 8 steps, giving the impression that the player is taking only 2 steps.
