No, the ball must be in custody of the opposing team for the shot clock to reset, and if the referee is watching it should really be a violation of the foot as you can't kick the Basketball, whether or not the referee decides to give you the ball or the opposing team the ball is questionable, it really should be yours because its the other teams foot that's violating however in some cases a referee may see that it was intentional and give the other team custody, so try and make it seem like an accident if your going to, but your best option is to just shoot the ball with any hope of it hitting the ring and you can run up and rebound it and start all over :) and its a 24 second shotclock not 14 :)
None. It'll presumably never start unless you wind it first.
Mainly the older clocks only require winding because they are manual in operation.
Winding the mechanism that powers Big BenThe Great Clock is wound three times a week. First, the auto-winding mechanism is set. This winds the striking train and the chiming train. Then the winding handle is attached to the going train. This part of the mechanism must be wound by hand. When the winding handle is operated, 'maintaining power' is activated. This keeps the Great Clock going while winding takes place. Oiling the mechanism is part of the clock's regular maintenance to keep all its parts in working order.
The NFL Play Clock is 35 seconds. The NBA Shot Clock is 24 seconds.
By winding them, old clocks(and some new ones) are powered by a system of springs. By winding the clock or watch you compressed the springs, which allowed them to store energy to power the clock or watch
Winding a clock or watch in the wrong direction can cause damage to the internal gears.
Depends on the clock. Probably seconds.
A hungry clock goes back four seconds.
