Continuity mistake: When Stan's body has been "deflated", his body is laying over the 3-point line. Then when the doctors rush over to him, he is laying a good distance away from the 3-point line.

Continuity mistake: When the second player's talent is being taken near the start, we see the paused game clock which reads 6:07. We then cut to a different angle and it's now 6:13, and stays that way until the scene changes.

Continuity mistake: Bugs and the duck had the black/white tennis shoes for Michael, but in the last game Mike wears black ones.


Continuity mistake: When Michael is warming up in the Looney Tunes gym and takes a jump shot, the ball enters the basket as if he was shooting from the left side of the basket. He actually shot from the center of the court, so the ball should have gone in differently.
