The 5-second throw-in count would end as soon as the ball was released by the thrower towards the court on the throw-in.
Good point JR...this kills any definite knowledge here because once you stop the count when the ball is thrown, you have no knowledge as to how long the ball was in the air.
I know God would never give me more than I could handle, I just wish he wouldn't trust me so much.
