‘Billions’ Cast And Their Athlete Comparisons
by Jeff Eisenband – The Post Game – May 8, 2017
“Billions” closed its second season this past Sunday, with a finale that — spoiler — left Chuck Rhoades Jr. feeling like a champion and Bobby Axelrod feeling unloved and less powerful. Season 3 of the Showtime series should feature Axelrod fighting his case while Rhoades attempts to run for governor of New York.
Although the season is over, that does not mean the conversation about “Billions” content is. We can always compare the cast to professional athletes, as we did below.

Bobby Axelrod: LeBron James
Axe is The Chosen One. He’s a hedge fund manager from a humble background who is ruthless in the business world. He takes every competitive advantage possible to be the best at what he does. James maneuvered to formulate the Big Three in Miami and then shifted the NBA balance of power to Cleveland, using the media to push his agenda (and desire to trade for Kevin Love). Both Axe and LeBron will have legacies tainted by their questionable tactics, but both insist they operated within the fair boundaries of their respective fields.
