** This Troper found the moments in chapter 20 when Sakuragi kept throwing balls at Rukawa as he tried to go up for a lay up hilarious, especially when he kept saying "It slipped". Double so when Rukawa threw a ball back at him, citing the same excuse. This of course lead to Sakuragi dumping the whole box of balls at him, saying "His whole body slipped", at this point this Troper was rolling on the floor laughing.
*** Bonus points for the ball's basket get thrown onto Akagi's head, making him look like a literal ''caged gorilla''. Even better when Sakuragi openly says so, and then Akagi gets so pissed he beats up ''both'' Sakuragi and Rukawa.
** It's a CallBack moment when Sawatika goes for an impressive dunk to "introduce" himself during the pre-match practice session, only for his attempt to be interrupted by [[TheCaptain Akagi]] and [[TheStoic Rukawa,]] who ''both'' threw balls at him and said "Oops."
* How the ''Hell'' did anyone miss this: ''Head Dunk.'' (Dies Laughing)
** ... That doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome...!! [[{{Badass}} Genius Hanamichi, mighty is he!!]] (no sarcasm intended)

* Exclusively in the manga, there's one moment of funny combined with MoodWhiplash when Haruko reveals that she has a crush on Rukawa. A heartbroken Sakuragi walks away with sad music suddenly playing out of nowhere to portray his broken heart. In the anime, it jumps right into Hotta's gang challenging Sakuragi in the middle of the class. In the manga, though, it suddenly cuts into a FourthWallMailSlot where the AuthorAvatar Mr. P jokingly held a contest of 'Sad broken heart song for Sakuragi' and accepting submission, only to be headbutted by a furious Sakuragi. In the next volume, ''[[BrickJoke turns out readers took up the offer]]''.

* Haruka earlier has several hilarious HypocriticalHumor when she complains on how rude the Rukawa fangirls are towards Sakuragi and swears that she'll not sink down to their levels... only to join them in cheering for Rukawa.

* Before the final Shohoku vs Ryonan match, Coach Taoka daydreams on how his 'dream team' was unattained (despite being satisfied with the current team): Two years ago he scouted for Mitsui, but got turned down because the latter's indebted with Anzai. The next year, he scouted for Miyagi, but again, turned down because the latter's indebted with Anzai. The next year (near present), he scouted for Rukawa, and got turned down again. Taoka freaked out, wondering if Rukawa was indebted with Anzai again. Rukawa then gave his real reason: ''Because Shohoku is near his home''. Cue Taoka {{Face Fault}}ing for the third failure.

* During the Mitsui arc, in what would be a MoodWhiplash of the serious tone, Kogure recalled that Akagi wasn't born a star player, back in the freshman days, he actually ''sucked'' (at free throws, but the manga adds up that he's not a very good dribbler either) except at dunking, to the surprise of both Sakuragi and Rukawa. In the manga, Akagi scolds Kogure by holding him on the collar and telling him to stop being overdetailed. In the anime, this is instead done by Akagi ''transforming into King Kong climbing a skyscrapper and swinging Kogure at hand while scolding him''.

* The very first Sakuragi vs Akagi due to the former insulting basket is filled with this:
** Start off with how Sakuragi remembered his sweet moment with Haruko (who lashed out at him for beating Rukawa formerly), all while crying and Akagi looking at him funny just after he explained the rules.
** Sakuragi using sliding to snatch the ball from Akagi.
** Sakuragi, in attempt to stop Akagi from shooting... trips and pulled down not only Akagi, but also ''Akagi's pants'', leaving him with his ass exposed '''in front of nearly the whole school'''. Poor Akagi is understandably embarrassed and pissed.
** Haruko comparing Akagi the day before where he's looking forward to meet Sakuragi... and present day Akagi yelling at Sakuragi and claiming that if this is an era of war, he's gonna cut his head.
