When UW advances to the West Regional in Oakland, Antoine and Kenny are shown talking outside the arena and ultimately begin tussling. The shots of them together are clearly on location, on the bare concrete plaza between the outdoor Oakland Coliseum stadium and the indoor arena. But when Kenny is shown alone, seemingly acting crazy with his ghostly brother not visible, the shot comes from the opposite angle and is obviously from a location shot in the Northwest, with lush greenery behind the opposing cheerleaders warming up on a lawn that is not part of the Coliseum complex.

University of Washington basketball player Kadeem Hardison dies suddenly of a heart attack, but comes back as a ghost that only brother/teammate Marlon Wayans can see to assist his team in going all the way to the NCAA National Championship. Another one of those fair films that is never really sure where it wants to go. An odd mixture of comedy and drama keep the production grounded throughout. The concept is tiring and unoriginal in the first place and the players found within are not given enough strong material to raise the mediocre parts to a strong whole. David Paymer and Michael Michele are part of the likable cast. "The Sixth Man" is not a bad bench warmer, but it has no business being in the starting lineup. 2.5 out of 5 stars.
