Should the NBA shorten the shot clock after an offensive rebound?

The proposal to change the shot-clock rule is gaining steam in the NBA. The new rule would see the shot clock reset to 14 seconds, instead of 24 seconds, after an offensive rebound. Some welcome the rule change because it would result in more possessions and has already worked at the FIBA level. Others think the rule is unfair to players willing to rebound the ball on the offensive end. Those players and teams should be rewarded with a full shot clock. What do you think? 🏀

Anything to cut down on the wasting of time in the NBA is a godsend. Cutting down on the amount of reset time will result in more possessions and more drama in late game situations—especially if teams can't bleed the clock an extra 10 seconds. This would be a great rule change.

It takes a lot of physicality in the paint to grab an offensive rebound. It takes skill, effort and grit. The NBA needs to reward players doing the dirty work with a full shot clock. It's the right thing to do.
