Let The Party Begin ...

7-5-1: When a team does not make a thrower available ... the resumption-of-play procedure is used to prevent delay. The administering official will sound the whistle to indicate play will resume. In each situation:
a. The ball must be put in play if Team A is ready or it must be placed on the floor.
b. The throw-in count must begin and if a violation occurs, the procedure will be repeated for Team B.
c. Following a violation by one team only, if that team continues to delay when authorized to make a throw-in, it is a technical foul.
d. Following a violation by both teams, any further delay by either team is a technical foul.
What if the throwin team is ready to go but the opposing (defending) team isn't ready?

I believe that, after loudly sounding our whistle, we give the ball to the thrower, and let the party begin.

I think that 7-5-1 could be worded better, not only regarding the use of the throwin resumption-of-play procedure at all times (not just after a timeout or intermission), but also regarding the throwin team being ready to go but the opposing team not be ready.

It states: When a throw-in team does not make a thrower available ... It doesn't say what to do if the defending team doesn't make defenders available.
