Kevin Durant has been quite busy this offseason. First, he mad headlines when he dumped agent Rob Pelinka in favor of Jay-Z and Roc Nation Sports. Now, he has taken a major step in his personal life and has become engaged.
KD and Monica Wright of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx are now engaged and are sure to have some basketball-playing kids. Congrats
Kevin Durant has found love.
The Thunder star is now engaged.
He proposed to his girlfriend, WNBA player Monica Wright, on Saturday, The Oklahoman has confirmed.
The website mediatakeout.com first reported the news Sunday.
Durant, 24, hasn’t said anything publicly about his relationship with Wright, who plays for the Minnesota Lynx. But mediatakeout.com obtained a picture of Wright flashing her engagement ring.
The two have been rumored to be dating since May, and Durant has attended at least two Lynx games this summer, one in Minnesota in late May and another in Los Angeles last week.
Am I the only one seeing the eery parallels to the movie “Love and Basketball?” Even as far as the name ‘Monica Wright’? Well apparently Durant did back in 2011 when he was looking for his ‘Monica Wright’…
Or maybe I need a basketball playing girlfriend…hmmm lol…monica wright where r u(love n basketball)
