When HBO’s Ballers first hit the small screen, I wasn’t impressed. Season 1 was all style over substance and it reminded me of Oliver Stone’s Any Given Sunday, which had a few good scenes, particularly Al Pacino’s locker room speech, but little else.
When Season 2 rolled around, Ballers seemed to develop some traction. The story lines were better and suddenly I was hooked. Today I learned that the Summer of ’17 just will soon get better. On July 23, HBO will debut Season 3.
The Season 3 will debut arrives after the second episode of Season 7 of “Game of Thrones.”
In case you are a Ballers novice the show stars Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore, a retired football player who has reinvented himself as a financial advisor for professional athletes.
The show is set in Miami and the cast includes Andy Garcia, Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, London Brown, Arielle Kebbel, Dulé Hill and Richard Schiff.
