2.
A complex maneuver in the NBA where the player takes more than two steps after dribbling the ball and does not get called for a traveling violation. It gets it name from the common crab, which naturally are born with 8 legs. A well done crab dribble will incorporate 8 steps and give the illusion the player is only taking 2 steps.
Did you see Lebron James crab dribble all over the Wizards?
