the clock counts down to show how much time is remaining in the game, it doesn't really matter which way the clock counts, but to me it does make more sense to know how much time is left in the game rather than how much time has elapsed in the game.
Players in the NBA have a 24-second grace period from the shot clock to get off a shot clock. In college basketball, the shot clock limit is 35 seconds.
There is a 24 second shot clock in the NBA.
Depeneds on the game
the fastest shot ever in basket ball was 0.01 that's how much time was left on the clock when he shot and made it to win the game after that they made a rule saying that u canot shoot if the clock has 0.03 or lower on the clock hope this helps u
it is a much older game
yes very much so
10000 a game
they play only two quaters of 24 minutes
a real basketball has much more grip than a replica and cost more to.
