I completely agree that we need to change to a 24 second shot clock and I appreciate your column about it, but there is a BIG BIG point that would strengthen your case that you overlooked. A 24 second shot clock would help ease the grind that games hit in the last two minutes. The team that's ahead wouldn't be able to waste as much time and the team that's behind wouldn't have to start fouling as early. Shortening the shot clock would actually force teams to play the game longer before hitting that wall. If you write about this point, I think it would really shift support in favor of the new clock.
