So on a pure number of travels basis, we're finding that Carmelo Anthony is the current leader, although several players are within range of passing him by the end of the season.
You'll note the strange header of "Poss/T" which is designed to remedy the fact that some guys have the ball a lot more than others -- this is a wag at a "Possessions per Travels" number with
Poss = FGA + FT Poss + T/O + Ast
If you then look for highest "rate of traveling" by this measure, you're talking:
27.7 Al Jefferson
33.6 Olowokandi (Min games)
If you limit it to the "heavy possession users":
39.7 Dwight Howard
52.8 Francis (Orl)
Fewest travels? A number of players have zero travels called on them this season, but Eddie Jones has zero travels with the most 'possessions'.
When you get to three-second violation turnovers you are of course in the domain of the big men who spend the most time banging in the paint and trying to post up.
Not surprisingly then it's Shaq and "baby Shaq" Eddy Curry atop the leaderboard, with the quiet giant Erick Dampier also in the mix, with admittedly a much higher rate of committing the turnover.
If you add together the 3-second blunders of Mark Blount for both his teams this season, then he is actually the main "problem child" in this area with 24 total!
For the true ball handling gaffes, the rarely called palming and double dribbling, you have several of the players who have the rock in their hands all the time, but also a few in Salmons, Head and Telfair who perhaps need to be conscious of this tendency.
As can be seen from the raw numbers though where eight is the highest total for any player, it's a rare enough event in the NBA to get whistled for this.
