!!Tropes featured in this film.

* AlternateHistory
* AluminumChristmasTrees: One of the Tropics' more outlandish promotional stunts has Jackie wrestling a bear after a game. ABA teams actually hosted man vs. bear wrestling matches on game days to lure in fans.
* AnachronismStew: In one scene, the Tropics are playing against the Anaheim Amigos. In reality, the Amigos had relocated to Los Angeles and became the Stars in 1968.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Jackie isn't particularly talented as either a player or a coach, but he is quite savvy in marketing.
* [[IHaveManyNames I Have Many Nicknames]]: Clarence Withers has 4 nicknames. As follows: "Jumping" Johnny Johnson, Sugar Dunkerton, Downtown "Funky Stuff" Malone, and Coffee Black.
* FluffyCloudHeaven: When Jackie sees his mother.
* FunnyAfro: Several. It is set in the 1970s after all.
* JiveTurkey: Turns out calling some a "Jive Turkey" is a ''very'' rude insult among Jackie's circle. So much so he tries claiming Cornelius called Lou a cocksucker instead.
* OneHitWonder: InUniverse: Jackie's disco hit "Love Me Sexy."
* OpenMouthInsertFoot: While Jackie and the referee father Pat are arguing, and Pat end up implying he thinks that Jackie's mom went to hell when she died. Jackie goes into StunnedSilence and walks away, along with several others including the announcer who declares he's leaving Pats congregation in disgust.
** Jackie did however start the argument by spewing vulgarities and death threats at Pat, however as a priest what Pat said really hits home.
