The palming (also known as the carry) call. Every ISO play or display of "good handles" from the past 20 years has heavily depended on players being allowed to"palm" the ball - something that used to be illegal in basketball but was gradually phased out to make the game more visually dynamic. This is why players back then looked a little stiff when dribbling, their limited display of dribbling moves has absolutely nothing to do with their skills or talents - they just had to follow a different set of rules.
