After the last bounce, followed by two further steps, then a shot to hoop before the end of the third step.

Is this action or the whole process called 3-step shot?enter image description here In other words, what is the boy doing in the animated picture?

  • 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

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