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.

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.
