That is entirely true. However, it is also true that it does not start as soon as the shot is made or even when a player catches or picks up the ball after falls from the basket. The throwing team should be given sufficient time to recover the ball and get into a position where they could make a legal throwin with it (OOB at the very minimum) before the count should start. Usually, that is 2-3 seconds unless the ball and players were not in a position to quickly get the ball and get OOB with it.
