The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that we may be seeing the end of those grating prolonged sequences of three officials huddled around a 2002-era computer screen to review a play; review could be headed to a centralized office.
Just been informed the NBA WILL have a centralized replay center for next season's games. So these playoffs last games with on-site review.— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) May 18, 2014
I for one am looking forward to more awkward crowd and players shots while everyone waits for the replay center to come to a conclusion. I'm kidding, hopefully this speeds up the process. Replay should honestly take no more than 30 seconds unless it's a spectacularly tough call to make (like the out of bounds call in Game 5 between Clippers and Thunder). This is a good plan that should help with matters and a smart move.
Replay has come under fire as a major reason why games are dragging on so long, as the league is said to be interested in getting total game time under two and a half hours.
