‘Ballers’ Series Review: MVPs On The Field & In Dollar$

Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore

This has got to be one of the most over-the-top shows that I’ve ever watched. There’s a scene in ‘Ballers’, where a white yatch floats smoothly on the sea, with hot chics in bikinis dancing to O.T Genasis' hip-hop song, ‘ I'm in love with the Coco’. Meanwhile, some jaw-dropping insanely hot men are busy popping bottles. There’s food everywhere and the dollar stacks spilled on the floor seem to be as laying there mundanely.

The show is ‘Ballers’, a series all about the crazy insane lifestyle of MVP football players. Topping this list is former superstar player ‘The Rock’, Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore. But poor sexy Spens ends up spending all his cash and now he’s broke. So what does he do? He trys out financial management for current players in the sun-splashed Miami. And he becomes a success at it because well, he’s none other than Spencer Strasmore.

But Spens must have gotten more than what he bargained for, because not only does he now manage all these current superstars’ bank accounts – he has to deal with their personal life dramas on a daily basis.

Now hitting season 3, the show is reminiscent of ‘Entourage’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’.  It’s filled with your typical live-the-high-life ingredients: The crazy party lifestyle, the promiscuous football players, the preying girls in need of a come-up and of course, the loyal WAGS (wives and girlfriends of sportsmen) who end up heartbroken.

Created by Stephen Levinson, ‘Ballers’ does a great job at making you wanna have a million bucks in the bag and spending it like you just don’t have a care in the world.
