Shortly after my epiphany I became aware that the NHL had thought of it also, and was already using a replay center in Toronto. MLB then implemented the plan this past season, and the NFL has done it this year as well (both in New York). Now the NBA is on board too:

Two things about the NBA's effort are somewhat disappointing though: One, the officials on the court will still actually make the decisions, they'll just have better footage to view now. Why not let somebody at the replay center make the call? And two, Secaucus, New Jersey?
