* GenderMisdirection: Due to Kagami referring to his mentor with a [[GenderBlenderName gender-ambiguous nickname that is often used as a masculine name]], the impressive reputation surrounding said mentor's basketball skills (since '''[[TheAce Kagami]]''' thinks he still has things to learn from said person), and only being shown as a sexually ambiguous silhouette before actually debuting on-panel/screen, both Seirin and the readers were left with the impression that "Alex" was a '''man'''. It's thus understandable for them to be mind-boggled that not only is Kagami's teacher a woman, but a [[HelloNurse sexy one]] at that (something that does not seem to trigger any reaction from Kagami, other than embarrassment at her shamelessness).

* GenderBlenderName: When Kagami said that he was going back to the USA to find his mentor "Alex" for dedicated training to prepare for the Winter Cup, everyone in Seirin thought said mentor was a guy since "Alex" sounded like a masculine name to them. It turns out that it's actually a '''nickname''', shortened from the decidedly feminine "Alexandra"[[note]]Technically speaking, "Alex" is a unisex name that can be used as a shortened form of the masculine name "Alexander".[[/note]].
* HelloNurse: The woman is '''hot''', and the fact is definitely noticed by the young men of Team Seirin; about the only ones who don't react at all are Kagami and Kuroko.

* MeaningfulName : His surname literally means Grey Peninsula. The grey part is the ColourfulThemeNaming as he's also from Teikou, when the peninsula part means he's different with the other Teikou alumnus, as he was kicked out and later dyes his hair, like a peninsula that is the only bit of land surrounded by the vast ocean.

The grey part is the ColourfulThemeNaming as he's also from Teikou, when the peninsula part means he's different with the other Teikou alumnus, as he was kicked out and later dyes his hair, like a peninsula that is the only bit of land surrounded by the vast ocean. Still, he is a peninsula, not an island. He is still connected to the Generation of Miracles by the fact they all graduated from Teikou, and he is the player with power closests to them after Kagami. He admits it himself that he feels out of place in Teikou basketball team.
