Imagine coming home from work, checking your phone, and getting a social media notification that Emily Ratajkowski came to your workplace with the sole intention of watching you bang out TPS reports. She even tweets @ you something like: “Checking in on @you licking those envelopes.” I don’t care if you’re if you’re the most famous athlete on the planet, that alone has got to make you at least consider risking it all.

That was the predicament LeBron James was in last night when the 27-year-old model showed up to the Staples Center to watch his Lakers beat the Timberwolves. To put it mildly, she was dressed to impress.

After the game, Ratajowski posted a photo of herself sitting courtside accompanied with a flirty caption directed at the best basketball player in the world.

The tweet sent NBA Twitter into a tailspin, resulting in some reactions that made me laugh out loud.

P.S. This dude caught blatantly checking out Ratajkowski with his kid right next to him is all of us.

As a player, how can you possibly focus on the job at hand when you have that big of a distraction courtside? LeBron doesn’t get enough credit for his mental fortitude.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
