Continuity mistake: When Sheppard is playing against the birdmen, at one point he does a layup around a defensive player. In the following scenes, he does exactly the same layup from a reverse angle, and you can see that the defensive player's number is also backwards.
Shep: You hear that Nutso? The boy here says he owes me. he owes ME. Are we even? ARE WE even? You don't owe me nothin. You owe yourself and ones who cared to get you here. Believe me. I know.
Birdie: Check this out. You ain't goin to college or any fuckin where if the Bird Man don't win. You might be on the other team, but you playin for ME. Remember that.
