Spencer Strasmore made his first big player signing as defacto GM of the Kansas City Chiefs on tonight’s Ballers episode “Municipal” on HBO.
This recap contains spoilers to HBO’s Ballers Season 5 Episode 4.
Spencer Strasmore decided to make an ‘unpopular’ move in the eyes of the NFL as his first order of business on tonight’s Ballers… Signing Kisan Teague. Despite Kisan admitting in a close door meeting with Spencer that he indeed fired off a few rounds that night, that it wasn’t just his friend Cliff… Spencer welcomed Kisan on-board anyway! The honesty actually securing him a place on the Kansas City Chiefs. Spencer told Kisan he believes in second chances but not third ones. Strasmore stood by his opening monologue that sometimes you gotta just say ‘F*** it’ to succeed in life, no matter what people say.
However, there’s red flags all over the move in plain sight. From Kisan stating he’d never abandon his friends no matter their bad influence… To the potential of a video leak of the security tape of Kisan taking aim. The signing could define Strasmore’s entire new career should things go awry. Judging by a call-in to Ricky Jarret’s new SiriusXM radio show by someone looking for the inside scoop on Kisan… There’s more people that know something’s up than Spencer realizes.
Ricky by the way, took the opportunity to bash Spencer throughly as a narcissist on his show’s debut (without a true audition). So much so that Spencer called in himself. Spencer commented he’d be on the player’s side when it comes to bargaining agreements. However, Ricky was unmoved, stating he’ll believe it when he sees it and that Spencer is all talk.
Meanwhile, ‘The Arbiter of Cool’ was not moved by business proposals during a rooftop party held by Sports X. Though he was bored of Lance and Joe’s pitches to him… Kate managed to seclude some editorials by turning on the charm and flirting. Joe grew jealous and depressive until Kate gave Joe a smooch on the lips and he wouldn’t stop smiling.
Reggie came to a compromise with Vernon, sign his $80 million dollar NFL contract and he’ll fund his own eSports team. Vernon agreed, as it kept his pro gamer dreams a reality. The Los Angeles Lakers’ Rick Fox made a cameo earlier telling Reggie, you either have money or talent… The more important one is what you don’t have! Speaking of money, Charles Greane can’t seem to come to an agreement on a contract renewal on the Rams. An omen? If Kisan works out on the Chiefs, will he be relieved of duties?
