Lots of people think it is 2 because that's how Basketball is played. In the NBA they can make up their own rules. One of them happens to be that you can take up to 3 steps.
This steps is a travel at most levels of basketball, with an exception of extremely young leagues. The maximum amount of steps a player can take without traveling is 2 steps. Even though traveling is probably the most commonly ignored penalty in professional basketball, so it would not surprise me if someone thought something like that.
in the NBA- 3 in Australia- 2
If a ball-handler takes three or more steps without a dribble, this is called a Traveling Violation and results in the other team receiving possession of the ball. Traveling is one of the most common calls in the game of basketball, but is the main source of criticism for NBA officials. This is because many people say that there is no such thing as traveling in the NBA since it is never called, even in the most obvious of times.
