back to L.A. right now.

When I land, we're
gonna hammer out this deal.

Bitch, I'm waiting for you.


Doctor told me to find a place
that resonates with me.

And I'm offering you
an extension.

You were my partner
and you bailed.

I was doing it for you.

Like you'd do anything
for someone other than yourself.

Can you still play?

True players play with pain.

We are warriors.

Surrendering is what
white people do.

Joe, I'm sorry.

I really appreciate
you saying that.

STRASMORE: We need to take care
of our guys.

I am honored to announce that
we've signed the largest,

fully-guaranteed deal
in history.

- Houston, we have a problem.

- It took years
to build this system,

and Strasmore's dismantling it
with one contract.

And now he's pushing
for health care?

- The guy's gonna die
on his cross.

- Ah, don't start with
the "Jesus is black" thing.

- This is what happens
when you bring in people

from the outside.

- Damn it, Strasmore.
f*ck' hell.

- Jockey's only as good

He's your donkey.
What are you gonna do about it?

- I'm looking at all options.

- Oh, there's only one that's
gonna make the fellas happy.

- k*lling Spencer Strasmore?

- In a metaphorical sense.

This is on us, Candace.
You and me.

- I appreciate you
remembering that.

- But only one person's
gonna take a fall.

- What are you suggesting?

- Tell the big guy
he's got two options;

either he sells his interest
in the team immediately,

or we destroy his life.

I suggest option number one.

- Can you do that?

- I can do anything I want.

You know, I, um,
just got a call from the league

and they made me an offer

What's that?

- mil over what I paid

just to get lost.
- Oh, my God.

It's a good thing you're not
barefoot because, as usual,

you stepped in shit.
- [chuckles] Yes, I did. Again.

But that money could pay

- I can't take that.

It's blood money.

The players need you.

And you know what?

In some ass-backwards way,

the league needs you too.

- [chuckles] Yeah, they got
a funny way of showing it.

- You're gonna save
their asses.

But more importantly,

you're gonna do right
by the players.

And the players
that came before them.

- Why hasn't anyone done that

- Greed, selfishness,

Okay, so--so the company that

So w-we're not just, like,

We're part of
a giant conglomerate.

They're not gonna want
to get involved

with smearing the league.

- It's not smearing
if it's telling the truth.

- How do you know?
You didn't even ask.

- Well, I've been at this
long enough to know

I'll just be banging my head
against the wall.

- Come on, man, the people
that started this studio,

they were mavericks,

You think they took "no"

- Hell no.

They were some crazy-ass
wandering Jews,

walked the desert
for f*cking days

and f*cking nights and
landed in San Fernando Valley

lookin' to get paid.

And I mean that
in a laudatory way.

/ majority needed to pass.

All those in favor, say "aye."

- Aye.

- One.


Four. Six.

Ten. Twelve.

Eighteen. Twenty.


All right, it looks like
we are one vote short

of the majority needed to pass.

- Hm.

- It's not too late for you.

- Too late for me? To what?

- To clear your conscience.

Save your soul.

- [laughs]
Course it is.

But still,

my answer is yes.

- Wait, "yes" as in "no,"
or "yes" as in "yes"?

- Yes as in Strasmore
has the right idea.

Now let's go get the CBA done

and take this league
into an even higher level.

["Hell N Back" by Bakar]

- ♪ Could you tell
where my head was at ♪

♪ When you found me? ♪

♪ Me and you went to hell
and back ♪

♪ Just to find peace ♪

- Thank you so much.
You're amazing.

Don't let me order any more.

- Hey, my man, can I get
a couple more of these, please?

These kinda small.

- That's why you got
high blood pressure now.

- [scoffs]
- Reggie.

I am honored you came,
now that you're an oligarch.

- Hey, don't be bitter.

Business is business.

- Wow!
I've taught you well.

It's like you've been
painting fences all month

and now you know karate.

Good afternoon, everyone!

Thanks for coming.

Big day.

Today we pour the foundation
of our future.

I feel so lucky to be surrounded
by my closes friends,

my family--
you are my family.

You have all,
every single one of you,

k*lled it in your own
individual, special ways.

Like Kate with Municipal Brand.

You're a k*ller.

And Lance, I can't believe
I'm gonna say this,

but you've been
a steadying hand.

- Yeah, it takes
a special kind of individual

to understand
the mind of a maniac.

- Thank you.


for a guy that's often
been mistaken

for waiters at hotel pools,

you destroyed it.

Vernon's deal,
Patrick's deal--

you're the best agent
in the f*cking business,

and I am so proud

to be your f*ck' boss.

- Partner.
- Hmm?

- [coughs] Partner!

- [inhales deeply]


You're a trailblazer.

To think of where you started
and where you're going,

it's mind-blowing.

Kudos, brother.

Just don't get started in
on cocaine.

That's my only advice.


The heart you show on the field

and in life

will be infused
in the walls of this complex.

And also, your commissions, too,
will be infused as well.

Thank you.


There he is.
Right on time.

You big bald f*ck.

I want you to know something.

Wherever we may roam
for the rest of our lives,

when I see you,
I'm home.

Brothers for life.

- And in the end,
what did you learn?

- Sometimes
it's about the journey and...

Sometimes it's about the result.

And sometimes it's about
none of the above.

And it never ends...

Until you're d*ad.

- This shit is dope.

- You did your thing, T.

This shit is f*re.

- We might be pretty good
at this Hollywood thing.

- We might be.


- You know, I thought I'd
always be known as a player,


Identity is a funny thing.

And just when you think
you've defined yourself,

or that life has defined you,

there's always
another chapter,

another challenge.

It's all about getting outside
of your comfort zone.

Until you do, you'll never know
what you're capable of.
