Dwayne Wade and the worst non-call travel ever

We all know that NBA officiating can be a bit lacking sometimes. And that officials don't really care about the travel rule anymore.

But this is taking it too far! 

Taken from a game last month between Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers, the clip shows Heat guard Wade taking a full seven steps before deciding to dribble the ball. I'm not sure wether to be annoyed at the number three for so obviously flouncing the rules or to say bravo for managing to get away with it.

What it definitely is though, is a terrible call, or lack of one, by the referees. How do none of them not make the connection between Wade moving and the ball remaining in his hands?

The Heat left the game with a one point victory, but definitely lost the moral battle. Whilst it looks for the future that nothing will be done about the relaxed attitude towards travelling in the NBA, i wonder how long it will be before someone breaks Wade's 'record'.
