In the fight scene between Tweety and the Monsters, the timer shows 12:00 but before that scene, it was at 5:01.

After the alien steals Patrick Ewing's talent, the referee throws the ball to Ewing for a free throw. The ball hits Ewing in the chest. When Michael is watching in TV and sees the replay of the incident, the ball hits Ewing in the forehead.

Lola is not among the toons exercising to the Richard Simmons video but appears in the gym out of nowhere, just after Michael Jordan enters in his uniform.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Stan Podolak falls in Birmingham Barons' dugout, we can clearly see the mat that he falls on.

Revealing Mistakes
When the Dog(Charles) jumps on Michael Jordan to lick him, when he comes back from his baseball game, the dog is clearly stuffed animal.
Space Jam used a website in their promotion process and it can still be found in online exactly as it appeared in 1996.

Michael Jordan actually wore his college basketball shorts under his Chicago Bulls uniform every game as a good luck charm.

Warner Bros built a new basketball court for Michael Jordan to make him happy while filming

The idea of the movie was first inspired from Nike ads, where the Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan face off against Marvin the Martina and his aliens' henchmen in basketball

Space Jam is the first animated movie to be edited for TV airings.

The Gym where Looney Tunes were practicing was named after the first producer of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies which is "Leon Schlesinger Gym"
