Congrats are in order for NBA star Kevin Durant who just got engaged to WNBA player Monica Wright.

Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar just proposed to his girlfriend, Monica Wright, a guard who plays for the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx.

The real life Love and Basketball couple have been very hush hush on their relationship until over the weekend when 24-year-old Wright was spotted rocking a ring on the left hand.

Fun Fact: Monica Wright  has the same name as a character in the 2000 film Love & Basketball. Durant made reference to that character in a 2011 tweet and now since the couple are happily engaged it means so much more. Dreams really do come true when you have a little LOVE & BASKETBALL! kevin-durant-engaged-monica-wright-freddyo

Monica Wright confirmed her engagement after the Lynx’ Sunday win over the Phoenix Mercury.

The Fourth of July was definitely a memorable event for these 2 ballers. Kevin Durant liked it so he put a ring on it!

Congrats to the happy couple!

Now I am going to be digging through my crates looking for my old DVD!
