Corrected entry: Though the movie is set in 1999, when the newspaper with the headline "Richmond beats Kennedy for 4th consecutive win", the printed date is November 9, 2004.

Correction: It's nowhere said that the story takes place in 1999 - the real story did, the one in the movie not (e.g. Carter became coach in 1997). It's just an abstract of his story as coach and as stated at the beginning of the movie "Inspired by the life of Ken Carter".

Corrected entry: The Black Eyed Peas song "Shut Up" is playing when the team comes into the party. The movie is based on a true story that took place in 1999, and this song wasn't made until 2003.

Corrected entry: "Get Low", the song being played at the school dance, didn't exist until three years after the movie is set.

Correction: It's nowhere said that the story takes place in 1999 - the real story did but the movie isn't necessarily set in the same year (e.g. Carter became coach in 1997). It's just an abstract of his story as coach and as stated at the beginning of the movie "Inspired by the life of Ken Carter".

Corrected entry: Someone at the dance is wearing an Indiana Pacers jersey with Ron Artest's name on the back. Artest did not play for the Pacers until 2001.

Corrected entry: At the start of the movie, Ty Crane wonders how it feels to be "the next LeBron James". At the time, the future Cleveland Cavaliers star was an anonymous middle schooler living in a small town in Ohio, and there's no way a Californian high schooler would call himself "the next LeBron James".

Corrected entry: When they face Bayhill, a timeout is called with 1:20 left to play, yet the clock is later restarted at 1:22.

Correction: This actually DOES happen. If the refs thinks that the reaction to the timeout took too long, they will add time back on the clock to compensate for their sloth.
