Kevin Durant lets his game do most of the talking as he gets a lot of respect for not only being one of the greatest players on the planet, but for how grounded he is. That’s why the announcement of his engagement to a WNBA player is simultaneously surprising, and indicative of the type of person KD is.
It’s being reported by several news outlets that over the weekend Durant proposed to his girlfriend Monica Wright, who plays for the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx. The two had remained quiet about their relationship leading up to this, and the OKC star had been seen at a few Lynx games in the past, but when asked about who he was there to watch, was coy and said he just wanted to watch basketball.
Durant and Wright met back in 2006 when both were involved in the McDonald’s High School All-American weekend. In 2010, Wright was the second overall pick in the WNBA, much like Durant. I'm sure scouts are already waiting to recruit their kids.
True to his personality, Durantula is yet to make a public statement regarding the engagement.
