True.

The throw-in and the throw-in count begin when the ball is at the
disposal of a player of the team entitled to it.

A ball is at the disposal of a player when it is:
d. Available to a player after a goal and the official begins the throw-in count.


When is the ball available to the player?

Through the basket? On the floor? In the inbounder's hands inbounds? In the inbounder's hands out of bounds? In the inbounder's hands out of bounds facing the wall behind the basket? In the inbounder's hands out of bounds facing the court?

For practical purposes, I agree with Camron Rust 100%, but that's not what the rule says.

Same issue for granting a timeout to the scoring team after a goal.

The ball becomes live when:
b. On a throw-in, it is at the disposal of the thrower.


At what point will the official not grant a timeout to the scoring team after a goal? When is the ball at the disposal of the player (available to the player)?

Ball on the floor? In the inbounder's hands inbounds? In the inbounder's hands out of bounds? In the inbounder's hands out of bounds facing the wall behind the basket?



When does the official start counting? When the ball is at the disposal of the inbounder.

When is the ball is at the disposal of the inbounder? When the official starts counting.
