I want this article to take 24 seconds or less to read. Danny Biasone invented the 24 second shot clock. Why 24 seconds? 60 shots per game per team were the games he found most exciting. 48 minutes in a game is 2,880 seconds. 2,880 seconds divided by 120 shots (for two teams) is 24. RIP Danny and congrats on making the HOF, even if it was 8 years after you passed away.
