How does traveling occur during a basketball game?

Traveling occurs when you or another player has the basketball and you take more than two steps without dribbling! Also if you jump up with the ball and then come down with the ball still in your hands it is Called a travel as well. If you are going for a layup you may take two steps! Also if you have the ball and you dribble and then pick up your dribble and then dribble again it is called double- dribble and is almost the same thing as traveling! If any of this happens the ball goes to the other team! Hope this helps!

What are a couple rules of basketball?

Well here are just a few - if a player fouls 5 times, they are taken out of the game - if you have the ball, you must dribble it when you are moving - you cannot stay in the key for more than 3 seconds - once you stop dribbling the ball, you have 5 seconds to pass it or shot it - you are allowed 2 steps without dribbling to jump up to shoot a layup (some referees allow 3 steps) Hope This helps!
