Will the creator of Ballers please stand up?!
According to legal docs, writers Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton claim they had the idea for the sports comedy way back in 2007.
The two say they were about to cut a deal with Wahlberg, Johnson, and their manager in 2009 until they asked for "Created By" credits.
Silas and Littleton believe there are way too many similarities between the two projects. Both are about the lives of football players on and off the field, both are set in Miami, and both center around African American athletes.
Furthermore, they claim the title Ballers was taken from one of their episode titles.
The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages.
According to a rep from HBO:
"We are confident the case has no merit."
The show has been renewed for a second season.

Mark Wahlberg & Wife Pucker Up For The Lakers' Kiss Cam While Adorably Embarrassing Their 12-Year-Old Daughter!
Aw, this makes our hearts melt!
Mark Wahlberg hit up the Los Angeles Lakers game on Thursday with his beautiful wife Rhea Durham and their 12-year-old daughter Ella Rae. Sitting courtside, the model and her dreamy husband couldn't help but go all out for the kiss cam — even if Ella was in the middle of them!
She threw her hands up in embarrassment of the very public smooching just before the parents decided to kiss their very mortified daughter on both of her cheeks.
The outing seemed to be a treat for the couple's eldest kid as her sibs Michael, 9, Brendan, 7, and Grace, 5, weren't present.
The Lakers' might've lost to the Houston Rockets, but Marky Mark was totally winning as he was seen having a blast with his family and then chucking it up with none other than Denzel Washington.
See all the pics (above)!
