While NBA fans were busy watching the saga surrounding Dwight Howard, Oklahoma City Thunder player Kevin Durant got engaged recently. The 24-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder superstar and his girlfriend Monica Wright of the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx are making plans to tie the knot.
News of Durant’s engagement hit the web on Sunday when blogs started posting the story about the couple.
Durant first brought attention to the couple’s relationship back in 2011 via Twitter after OKC was eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Memphis Grizzlies. He also has been seen front row at a few of the Minnesota Lynx games recently.
Many thought he was talking about the movie “Love and Basketball” because the main character in the movie played by Sannaa Lathan was named Monica Wright…Just like Durant’s girlfriend…What a coincidence.
