Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant has met his match.

Basketball is Durant’s life and he’s found a woman who feels the same way about the sport. Durant proposed to Monica Wright over the summer and since then he continues to praise his fiancée every chance he gets.

Wright, who plays for the Minnesota Lynx, helped the team win the 2013 WNBA Championship last week. And Durant was in attendance. He told Oklahoma Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry that, “he was proud of how she helped her team win a championship. It was kind of tears of joy. I’m glad she’s my future wife. She’s got more championships than I do.”

When Durant was later asked by a fan on Twitter how he felt about Wright getting a championship ring before he did. Durant responded, “@pdgrahamo30 I love it!!! She’s the better player anyway.”

Durant has been pretty tight-lipped about the engagement only confirming the news and posting photos of his bride to be. Wright, on the other hand, doesn’t mind expressing her feelings about her basketball player.

Wright publicly expressed her love for Durant on Instagram in August. Her post read, “You think I’m pretty without any makeup on you think I’m funny when I tell the punchline wrong I know you get me so I let my walls come down. Before you met me I was alright but things were kinda heavy you brought me to life now every February you’ll be my Valentine.” Katy Perry said it best!”
