What exactly are you asking? because after you stop bouncing you can do only two more step, 3rd step will be count as travelling. –  Dor Cohen Jun 4 '13 at 15:16

I just want to format the text with a quote. It's removed since it is confusing. @DorCohen, maybe I didn't describe it clearly, what I was trying to say is exactly what the boy is doing in the animated picture. –  canoe Jun 4 '13 at 22:02

The animation you reference represents an ideal case scenario of a "lay up."

This is just one example of a lay up. There are many examples because of defensive factors.
