forcing more on the offense seems transparently to favor defenses.
How is it enhancing offense to force teams to move the ball up in 8
sec. instead of 10?
I have wondered if the shot clock should be 30 sec. instead of
24. After a team brings the ball to within 25 feet, typically there
are 16-18 sec. left; a couple of passes and there are 6-8 sec. left.
Now it is desparation time. Another 6 sec. to set up gives offenses
almost twice the time to set up a good shot.
Didn't the ABA allow 30 sec? Were they plagued by low-scoring
