Plot hole: About half way through the movie, the basketball coach is in his office and you can see a dry-erase board behind him, and a couple of dates such as 3-15-99... however earlier in the movie when they are announcing the basketball game they say that it is the 2000 season. They obviously changed the voice over to 2000 after the release date was changed, however the dates on the board are still referring to the scheduled '99 release.
Trivia: During the last basketball game of the movie, there is a shot of the coach, and you see some of the other team's boys warming up. Their school is on the front of their shirts. The school is Stratford, which being an Othello remake is a direct reference to William Shakespeare and his birthplace Stratford-on-Avon.
