When a basketball player stops, and when a driver slams on the brakes, the player's shoes, as well as the car's tires, squeek or squeal.

OK, let's go with the reverse:

When a driver hits the gas pedal, and when the player starts moving after having stood still, the tires and shoes squeek and/or squeal.

Is there a fast break in NASCAR?

NASCAR and basketball are two sports where sitting on your butt can result in ‘traveling’.

Paul S gets honorable mention for alluding to traveling, but with no ands, ifs or butts cited.

Another trivial question is more than welcome.

Definitely not up to standard, this question.

The traveling paradox precipitated this thread.

When a basketball player lands on his rear end with the ball, he is guilty of “traveling”.

I maintain that such a player is guilty of “sitting”, not “traveling”.

If the basketball player were sitting in a car, like the NASCAR driver, “traveling” might be a plausible violation, but a sitting basketball player is quite stationary in reality.

In NASCAR you can go 200mph while sitting, whereas in basketball the speedometer drops to zero.

You might even say he's off a different type of grid.


I mean that as a compliment.
