After catching the Basketball in the air, the player has the ability to take two steps. After two steps, the player must stop. He/she may rotate on a pivot foot or may move freely, as long as they stop after catching the basketball in the air.

This is assuming that by catch the player catches the ball with 2 hands, as if they control the ball with one hand, they don't have to stop at all.

Technically, you're only supposed to take two. Anything more is a travel. You cannot take them from a standstill, you have to be already moving and dribbling. The Refs have become very lenient though, and most players won't get called for taking an extra step anymore, especially the stars.

You're allowed to take as many steps as needed while dribbling the basketball, but while not dribbling and driving to the hoop, you're only allowed 2 steps while holding the basketball running towards the goal.

When you have the Basketball and you run or walk more then one step without bouncing it Travelling is taking two consecutive steps with different feet without dribbling the ball, unless the ball is released after the second step and before the third step occurs.
