Oh, ballers — with your broad shoulders and long, lean arms sporting the perfect amount of muscles — you make us weak. The NBA All-Star Game is here, ladies. And while our men are waiting to see the perfect jump shot, we’re just happy to see these guys sweat.

Comes in Handy
Did you know that Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is ambidextrous? That means he can work the ball with the same amount of skill no matter which hand he uses. Hmmm, makes us wonder what else he can do…

With 13 NBA All-Star games under his belt, Kobe Bryant is the veteran on this year’s Western Conference team. We wonder if he could give us a few pointers on how to score.

The Game of Love
Do you remember Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen from somewhere? That’s right, he played basketball phenomenon Jesus Shuttlesworth is Spike Lee’s “He Got Game.” We’d like him to show us just how much game he’s got.

Carmelo Anthony may be married now, but we hope LaLa Vazquez doesn’t mind if we swoon over the Denver Nuggets small forward for a moment. Because, from the looks of him, ain’t nothing small about “Melo” Anthony.

Oklahoma City point guard Russell Westbrook may be 22, but he dribbles the ball like he’s been in the game for years. We can’t wait to see him bring a little of that youthful passion and energy to the court this weekend.

Hate On Me
Despite the haters, Miami Heat small forward LeBron James made it to the All Stars yet again. He’s got the perfect blend of raw talent and resilience. What could be sexier? Oh yeah, strong shoulders, a cute smile and kissable lips.

I Like Your Smile
New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul has some of the hottest stats in the game. The four-time All Star also has one of the cutest smiles in the NBA. We’d kiss him even if he wasn’t victorious every time he stepped onto the court.

If Kobe is the Western Conference’s vet, then Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett is representing the veterans for the East Coast. The 34-year-old has one of the most impressive careers in NBA history, but we’re more swayed my his sexy chocolate complexion and smooth bald head.

Oklahoma Thunder star shooting guard and small forward Kevin Durant sure does clean up nicely. We could stare at the 6’9", 230 pound baller in a suit and never get bored.

Tall, Dark and Handsome
Hey, Gabrielle. Do you mind if we stare at your man Dwyane Wade for a moment? We just want to check out that long lean stature and those delicious lips for little bit.

A Little Distraction
What? … Pardon us. We were just staring at Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo’s round shoulders and chiseled biceps. Why aren’t we rubbing them right now?

Ever since Amare Studemire’s began playing for the New York Knicks, the team’s been picking up momentum. Ever since Amare came into our live’s we’ve been sweating a lot more. Is it that strong jaw or that 6’ 10" frame? Whatever it is, were sprung on Stoudemire.

It’s Atlanta Hawks center Al Horford’s second All Star championship. We couldn’t be more pleased to see those big brown eyes, full lips and strong hands on the court aain.

Paul Pierce has been a Boston Celtics team member ever since he entered teh NBA in 1998. At 33 and with eight previous All Star championships behind him he’s reached a number of career milestones. Hmmm we love a man with experience.

Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard seems too good to be true. The 6’11", 256 pound sweetheart has captured our hearts and we are truly smitten.
