The five biggest takeaways from this week’s episode of ‘Ballers’
Last week’s season premiere saw Spencer Strasmore, an ex-jock turned financial advisor played by The Rock, get into a scrap with one of his old agent’s top clients, Terrell "T-Sizzle" Suggs (a nickname they seem extremely intent on using). Words are exchanged, The Rock gets hip tossed, and now, in Episode 2, which aired Sunday night, we’re dealing with the fallout of not only his physical bruising, but his mental anguish and desire to put one over on the man who lost all his money.
Andy Garcia plays Spencer’s former financial manager, a man so full of himself and accustomed to winning, it seems as if he didn’t even toss Strathmore a "sorry bro, sucks to suck" after he lost all his money and sailed into the sunset. This episode, as always, is filled with snappy one-liners and fantastically tailored suits, but let’s take a look at the five biggest takeaways from "Enter the Temple":
In between shots of butts, of course. Don’t worry y’all, we’re tackling important issues here. We just have to make sure to fill our butt allotment.

Spencer: "Hi, clearly I am abusing Vicodin, may I please have some more Vicodin to abuse?"
Doctor: "It looks like you’re abusing Vicodin, I feel like I shouldn’t give you any more Vicodin to abuse."
Spencer: "Please, just give me the drugs so I can continue to abuse them."
Doctor: "I’m going to give you these drugs to abuse, but please… stop abusing them."
Spencer: [huge smile] "Thanks Doc, I definitely won’t keep abusing them!"
This will work out well.
