The 24-second shot clock, used in all NBA games, was invented by Danny Biasone, the late owner of the Syracuse Nationals basketball team. Following the 1953-54 season, he invented the clock to try and speed up the game and prevent teams from stalling. A monument is located in Armory Square in downtown Syracuse.
