What are the odds that Kevin Durant would find love with a WNBA basketball player who shares the same name as the female lead in “Love & Basketball?” NBA basketball star Kevin Durant recently proposed to WNBA guard Monica Wright.

According to ESPN, Wright, who plays for the Minnesota Lynx, confirmed her engagement to Durant after her victory against the Phoenix Mercury on Sunday night. The two have been rumored to be dating since May after Durant was spotted at several of Wright’s games, however, they have known each other since 2006.

Durant is well known for being the star player on the Oklahoma City Thunder and being one of the elite few athletes signed to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation Sports. Congrats Monica and Kevin!
