There's nothing like a good old-fashioned crush!

The only difference is "Sam and Cat" star Jennette McCurdy and Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond didn't draw hearts in their diaries like most people. Instead they took their affections to Twitter and used a ton of emoticons along the way.

For the last two months, the 20-year-old NBA hunk has posted photos of the Nickelodeon cutie on his Instagram as his choice for the trendy hashtag, #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday).

After being the longtime subject of his online adoration, the 21-year-old actress walked right up to the free throw line and shot him a tweet on August 7, "@DRE_DRUMMOND_ I wanna watch you play!" to which he replied, "@jennettemccurdy ill let you know when I play in LA!"

The NBA season doesn't start until October, so the duo continued to exchange tweets and Drummond romanced his lady from afar by sending her a slew of gifts like flowers and teddy bears, which McCurdy regularly gushed about to her followers.

And after a few weeks of e-flirting, the adorable pair finally met up in person and spent Labor Day weekend together in Los Angeles, which McCurdy kicked off with a tweet and a pic, "With @DRE_DRUMMOND_ ahhhh!!!"

It looks like their meet-cute was a match made in social media heaven. "Words can't explain...Add your own caption," Drummond wrote on Friday on a snap where he is giving the 5-foot-2 cutie a piggyback ride and flashing a mile-wide smile. (Fun fact: He's a staggering 6-foot-10.)

The cute couple continued their love fest by posting tons of pics (natch!) of their adventures, which included a Disneyland date with fellow Nickelodeon star Nathan Kress and his girlfriend, laser tag, running around Beverly Hills, and a ton of funny faces. An onlooker at Disneyland even snapped a photo of the celebs holding hands at the "happiest place on Earth." Later, Drummond put all their photos together into an Instagram collage and captioned it, "A million pictures...... A million smiles." Aww!

We cannot get enough of these two! Is it just us, or does this romance seem like a slam dunk?
