Just Wright

Synopsis: Leslie Wright is a straight-shooting physical therapist who gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight. All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie's childhood friend Morgan, who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play the role of "best friend" forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him?

So,

how about them Nets, huh?

So, how was the date?

- Was he cute?

- Yep.

- And?

- And he thought

I made the perfect homegirl.

I'm sorry.

But you do have homegirl

written all over you.

What? I'm just being my regular self.

You are not supposed to show him

your regular self

until you've been married for five years.

What is all this?

Research.

I was reading The Power of Now

and it dawned on me,

a girl doesn't just become the wife

of an NBA franchise player by accident.

It takes strategy, good intel,

and vision.

I'm sure that's what Eckhart Tolle

thought when he wrote that book.

Say what you want,

but don't be hating on your girl

when she's a brand.

Morgan, what are you talking about?

These NBA players' wives?

I mean, one's got a fragrance,

the other has a clothing line coming out.

Brands.

I'm almost 30.

I got to start thinking about my future,

like now.

You really scare me sometimes.

You know, you're crashing

in my guest room.

Your BMW got repossessed

'cause you stopped making the payments.

Does any of this research

involve you getting a job?

This is my job. Have you been listening?

- I'm going to bed.

- Good night.

You still rolling to the game

with me tomorrow?

Already working on my outfit.

It takes good bait to catch a fish.

I must be fishing in the wrong river.

Okay.

Warm, feminine, peachy.

Hey, Mom.

How you gonna get a man

dressed like that?

Well, Ma, I'm going to the game.

And, no. Where's Daddy?

He's in the kitchen

working on another one of your projects.

- Daddy.

- Yeah?

I thought we said we were gonna let

a plumber handle those new faucets.

Well, why waste your money on a plumber

when your dad's got this under control?

Leslie!

Now this is how you get a man.

I told her to wear a dress.

To a basketball game?
