Ballers: The battle for money and respect amps up in season 2 trailer

(HBO)

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s HBO show Ballers is about football players trying to move into business and finance after their playing careers end. Judging by the trailer for season 2, the series’ high-flying opulence hasn’t gone anywhere. Three-piece suits, night clubs, and fancy cars abound as the dialogue explains how money is the same as respect for the characters.

Most importantly, though, the trailer begins with a snide diss at Vin Diesel by his Furious 7 co-star Johnson. When a hotel receptionist mistakes Johnson’s Spencer Strasmore for Diesel (who is a celebrity in the show’s fictional world), he replies, “I’m bigger and better looking.”

Watch the trailer above. Ballers returns Sunday at 4 p.m. ET on HBO.
