Do the referees need glasses? 9-step travel goes uncalled

[dropcap2]O[/dropcap2]n April 2nd, in a game against the Miami Heat,¬†Kendrick Perkins of the Cleveland Cavaliers had a nine step travel. It’s pretty hilarious to watch, but shouldn’t the NBA refs be able to clearly see this. For the NBA, a couple extra steps is understandable, but nine!?

They should be paying attention to the right player. The last I checked this isn’t football, and you can’t just carry the ball around. He traveled to a different country, but the refs didn’t check out his passport clearly enough.

Props to him though for just playing it off like nothing happened. After that, he probably felt like the luckiest man on earth.
