* StopBeingStereotypical: Coach Carter challenges his team to overcome the DumbJock stereotype. As well as calling out the principal for perpetuating it by disregarding the team's education due to her belief that they cannot do any better.

* ArtisticLicense: Several instances [[http://truesportsmovies.com/basketball/coach-ken-carter-richmond-oilers/ mentioned here]]. But one popular example is Coach Carter being portrayed as having earned a basketball scholarship to Division I school George Mason University. In real life, Carter didn't attend George Mason. He attended George ''Fox'' University, a Division III school in Oregon.

* OnlySaneMan: Damien. [[spoiler:Except when his teammates get him drunk at the Bay Hill girl's party.]]]] Kenyon, despite dealing with the burdens of having a pregnant girlfriend, often fits this trope as well.

-->'''Carter''': Nigger is a derogatory term used to insult our ancestors. See, if a white man used it, you'd be ready to fight. Your using it teaches him to use it. You're saying it's cool. Well, it's not cool, and when you're around me, I don't want to hear that shit! Are we clear?
