Q. One of my players keep getting a travel call everytime he does the spin move. I used to do this move when I used to play but never get called for travelling. I just don't understand why when it's still a two step drive, the only differences he is spinning rather than driving straight to the basket. 

A. Clearly, it is difficult for me to give you all information without actually seeing the spin move you talk about.  However, in what you describe below, if the player has two feet on the floor when in possession of the ball and not dribbling, and takes "two steps" as you mention below, then it would be a travel. He can't pick-up his pivot foot and return it to the floor before he releases the ball.
