This is the reported reason the shot shot clock was set at 24 seconds.

Thoughts on the shot clock? Is it good where it is? Does it need to be reduced to 20 seconds to encoruage more possesions (and more chances for Rondo and LBJ to get triple-doubles). The league has been trying to find ways to speed the game up and increase the scores (three-point line being moved in and the three-seconds-with-your-back-to-the-basket rule to eliminate post players who slowed the game down).

I like it the way it is myself.

I am fine with 24 seconds, it works perfect.

24 is perfect.

Have 20 and you'll see a lot of rushed offense.

why change something that is working? i hate how commissioners always feel they need to tweak things when there's no need to.
