Here's my two cents: go watch it!
I'm a great fan of this show, both for its style and its plot.
The style sure is weird: deliciously so. The flying scenes recall the wuxiapian films, as if the basket court were a battle field for martial arts. This also explains the end of the serie, and all the metaphors used in the show (the gladiators' drums, the street basket/fighting, the references to classic war situations and so on).
The plot is just as surreal as the style, but it is brilliantly acted and it becomes believable and thrilling. Even the love triangle is worth watching, with leading ladies with guts!
I give it a full 9 - the only flaw being a somehow incomprehensible beginning (at least for me).
