Leslie Wright (Queen Latifah) is a straight-shooting physical therapist tired of being a guy’s girl. She is living with her childhood best friend, Morgan, who hopes to be an NBA trophy wife. After a Nets basketball game, Leslie helps star player, Scott McKnight (Common) at the gas station. He invites her to his birthday party, where she shows up with Morgan. He meets Morgan and suddenly takes an interest in her. After a quick relationship, Scott and Morgan end up being engaged. At the 2009 NBA All-Star Game (which was filmed at the Izod Center even though the game really took place at the US Airways Center), Scott becomes injured, an injury that could possibly ruin his career. Morgan suggests that he enlist the help of Leslie, since she did not approve of his previous gorgeous physical therapist, so Leslie moves into their home.
