Default How much of a difference does a 24 second clock make compared to a 30?

I have watched College ball and International ball for years. I have played at high levels in Australia and all use a 30 (intenational leagues) or 35 (college) second shot clock, so I have to ask... How much of a difference do you think the extra 6-11 seconds really make?

Quoth Eric Gordon:

In college, guys usually pass the ball around on evey possesion, but in the NBA,the shot clock is so short that once you get the ball up court, you have to shoot almost right away

I apologise if this topic has been posted before (need search function!!!)

Rebounds would go down, FG% might go up.

In todays NBA, a players has 7 seconds to advance the ball past the time line. So in essence, the additional time would allow a full 24 seconds in the half court. When a team gets a fresh 24 off a rebound or from a reset in play, almost all teams go to their half court sets. Teams resort to ball movement and post ups in these sets.

I believe that the difference would in turn, be a slower pace game. Teams would run sets to get big guys to post up for high percentage shots, run guys off screens to create space for their shooters, and run pick and rolls/pick and pops. David Stern would cringe at the idea of a slowed down game. Scores would be under 100 points regularly. People will cry and whine (more than they already do) because the game is too slow and boring.

In regards to the generalistsic, mainstream fanů

The game will be more boring, no more run and gun. If a team attempts to have a run a gun game, it will backfire against them; since the only thing the other team needs to do is run down the clock to slow down the pace and consequently dropping the run and gun team's FG....But in my opinion more players in the nba will be better off with a 30 seconds shot clock. Fewer TO and better offensive executions will be seen on most teams.

Default Re: How much of a difference does a 24 second clock make compared to a 30?

I've stated for years that the College shot-clock needs to be reduced to 30 seconds.

35 seconds is RIDICULOUS. The 11 second difference between the NBA and College shot clocks is the biggest hurdle for first year players, in my opinion. People always talk about having to deal with the Athletecism of the NBA, but to me it's having to deal with the Pace.

Also, the margin of error involved with an 11 second difference is huge. In the NBA you typically get to run one set, and you either get it right, or find a shot. In College, you often see teams run multiple sets in one possesson.

Why not just change the college rules to follow NBA rules?
