Sick Harden behind the back between the legs

Great move by Harden today, absolute classic. Question though, he puts 2 hands on the ball as he regains control after the through the legs move; is that a double dribble? I know it's not in the NBA but in real life would it have been? Link below

It wasn't really that great of a play. It was also a double dribble and a travel.

Nothing really special about that and we'll just ignore the double dribble....

Kobe could have pulled of the same move without the travel or the double dribble ;-)

Would've looked a lot smoother too.

Fumble at the end of a dribble perhaps? That magnates the double dribble however the footwork in the FIBA game would have been a travel. However this isn't FIBA therefore the unwritten 2 1/2 step NBA rule comes in.

Clearly a travel & double dribble in the slow motion replay.

You wouldn't pick it in the heat of the moment though, I certainly didn't and with 2 bodies of opposition surrounding him, that would also block the ref's view.

I played with a crazily co-ordinated guy who made it to SBL level (WA). He used to do something similar to split double-teams. Usually involved a head fake to set it up.

Similar in that it was behind-the-back-between-the-legs, different in that he didn't double dribble whilst doing it, and he did not travel straight afterwards.
