This may be one of the cutest stories I’ve heard in a long time!

Check out this tweet from Kevin Durant sent back in 2011:

Well he might have been on to something, even though he was referring to Monica Wright, Sanaa Lathan’s character in the movie, “Love and Basketball.”

Durant is reportedly now dating Wright of the Minnesota Lynx. The couple met in 2006 at the McDonald’s All-American High School game, and have been friends ever since.

How cute!!

He’s even been spotted at her games supporting her.

She recently talked about their “friendship.”

“A lot of it has to do with basketball, that’s how we’ve known each other. But he’s helped me, coached me. He’s actually a type of player I want to be like.”
