We found out that Kevin Durant was taken by WNBA player Monica Wright, soon after the two were engaged and soon after that, the two were broken up.  They seemed like a really good match and gave us a real life “Love and Basketball” moment even down to her name, but things soured.  Both were pretty private and didn’t really want to open up about why the break up happened but Monica soon revealed that Durant wasn’t willing to sacrifice his lifestyle for her’s as a Christian.  As far as I know, Durant is a Christian as well but it was reported that he wasn’t ready to settle down quite yet.  Now Durant is giving his side of the story.

His heart still not quite right after hurting someone he loved.

“I had a fiancée, but…I really didn’t know how to, like, love her, you know what I’m saying? We just went our separate ways.” Monica Wright, WNBA player, something like a high school sweetheart. One night Kevin got so full of feelings he just up and proposed to her. “We was just hanging out, chilling. And I felt the energy. I felt, I need to do this right now. And I just did it. I was like…We’re engaged right now? We’re about to get married? So I was just like, cool! I love this girl. But I didn’t love her the right way.”

It seems like he rushed into that situation and wasn’t quite ready for it.  I’m sure he’s learned a valuable lesson now.
