Congrats to Kevin Durant and WNBA player Monica Wright for getting engaged this past week. The two pro players have known each other since the 2006 McDonalds All-American game and were able to keep their relationship pretty hush hush.
He did post a tweet a couple of years ago about needing a girlfriend and mentioning the name Monica Wright but most people just assumed he was talking about the Sanaa Lathan character in the 2000 film “Love & Basketball” not the WNBA player of the same name.
Or maybe I need a basketball playing girlfriend…hmmm lol…monica wright where r u(love n basketball)

I’m glad to see Monica get a ring and hopefully Durant will recieve on in the near future too. In the meantime, the two pro players can attempt to produce the most gifted basketball player of all-time (Candace Parker & Sheldon Williams are also participating in this WNBA/NBA genes experiment).
It’s just a joke KD…
