Physical therapist and basketball fan Leslie Wright dreams of working with the New Jersey Nets. She also wants to have a meaningful relationship with a man but hasn't yet managed to. Fate puts her in the path of star Nets player Scott McKnight who invites her to his birthday party. Leslie brings along her gold-digging god-sister Morgan who immediately catches Scott's attention. Morgan and Scott have a whirlwind courtship and become engaged while Leslie can only watch with disappointment as the man she'd grown to care for is stolen away. When Scott suffers a potentially career ending injury in an important game, Morgan advises Scott to go to Leslie for physical therapy. Leslie moves in with the couple to give Scott full time care, trying to help him with his injury despite the rumors that his career will be over if he isn't back in the game by the playoffs. Worried about what this can mean for her monetary future and status, shallow Morgan callously leaves Scott. Although Scott falls into a slump, Leslie helps him out of it and the pair become good friends throughout his recuperation. Thanks to Leslie, Scott is able to return before the playoffs and, though he does poorly at first, he is able to improve with Leslie's support. After a dinner to celebrate his win and show his gratitude for all Leslie has done, the pair share a passionate kiss and later spend the night together. With Scott's career back on track Morgan returns and Leslie leaves, heartbroken. Scott later realizes both that Morgan is superficial and that Leslie was a genuine person who was not after his wealth or fame. On a talk show he professes that, in spite of his horrible injury and the uncertainty of his future career, the time he spent with Leslie was some of the best of his life. He and Morgan realize that he is really in love with Leslie. Morgan actually understands and does the right thing for her god-sister. She gives Scott her blessing and tells him the news that Leslie is planning to take a physical therapist job with a Philadelphia team since she could not work with the Nets given her history with Scott. He tracks her down in Philadelphia and admits his love for her. The pair marry and Leslie finally takes her dream job working as a trainer with the Nets.
