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.

Running with the ball in basketball is called?

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.
