Just wondering when carrying got taken out of the NBA? A supposed rule that is never called anymore...

Also how come traveling went from 1.5 steps to 2.5?

NBE!!

No, I have played basketball for numerous years, it is called in youth-high school.. Then in the NBA they suddenly disregard the rules..

OP the players are just too fast. No mere human could count their steps so quickly. thus, rarely called. usually on larger, lumbering Centers

I think being a ref in the nba is harder than the other major sports leagues(mlb, NFL etc.

I am don't even a huge nba fan.

I am don't even a huge nba fan.How so? Calling balls and strikes is harder. NFL refs have it bad because of the thousands of rules.
