It’s love in the land of basketball. If you are a true basketball fan, then you have already heard of the recent engagement of NBA star Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the WNBA star Monica Wright of the Minnesota Lynx. These star basketball professionals have known each other for years, according to recent press reports. The newly-engaged couple has not decided on a wedding date yet, but everyone who is in the world of celebrity basketball knows that the Durant-Wright wedding is going to be one of the top 2014 weddings.

Mums the word on a lot of the details, and that may be because Durant and Wright are trying to adjust to a time of engagement and are trying to let the excitement of this season soak in a little before going full force into wedding planning. Certainly, their busy game and workout schedules are going to keep them busy and make it difficult to plan a wedding. An engagement period should be a time of relaxing with your loved one and celebrating with family and friends through engagement parties. Durant and Wright are sure to have an all-star line up at both their nuptial celebration parties and their actual wedding, but before they get to the big plans, can we please talk about that ring on her finger?

No one has written about Monica Wright’s ring, and there are few details about how large it is. But from photos, it looks huge. Monica Wright has gorgeous hands, and that massive diamond looks great on her slender basketball woman hands. However, we have to ask celebrities: How much ring really is way too much? Celebrities have money to spend, but it a culture that promotes materialism while most of the country struggles to pay for food and to just get by, can’t big-time stars like Durant and Wright make the decision to make a different kind of statement. Cannot there be a celebrity out there who chooses a small diamond, or better yet, a simple band for an engagement ring? Cannot celebrities put there money into projects and people who really need that money? Does every engagement ring have to be dripping with expensive diamonds?

No one is doubting that Monica Wright is beautiful and talented. No one is doubting that Kevin Durant and Monica Wright together can use their money to help those in need. But they also can make a difficult decision to have a different kind of celebrity wedding and engagement ring. I personally would like to see positive role models like Kevin Durant and Monica Wright take a stand for those who are in need through the unconventional way they approach their upcoming nuptials. Who says that a beautiful wedding and engagement ring has to be worth millions of dollars? It is time for celebrities to think through these issues before they start writing endless checks for extravagant affairs. Congrats to the couple!

    1. Personally I think it’s a beautiful thing. They worked for their money and they should be able to spend it wherever and however they choose. You made this statement, “Cannot celebrities put there money into projects and people who really need that money?” Didn’t Durrant just give 1 MILLION dollars to OKC after the tornados tore through that state; really! How do you know what they do as far as charity. Please don’t be so bold as to make statements like that about someone you know nothing about. I am very sadden that you would try to rain on these fine young people’s parade. Let them be happy! I wish people would stop trying to tell other people what to do with their money. Sweep around your own back door before you go trying to sweep around someone else’s door. Obviously KD is a giving person, because as the old saying goes, “the more you give, the more God gives to you and KD keeps raking in plenty! So there you have it. Just be happy for this wonderful productive couple. Young, Gifted and Black, I love it!

    2. I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or blog posts in this kind of house .
      Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site.
      Studying this information So i’m satisfied to show that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling
      I came upon just what I needed. I so much certainly will make
      sure to don?t omit this site and provides it a look on a continuing basis.

    3. Pleaase let me know if you’relooking for a article author for
      your site. You have some really good poksts and I think
      I would be a goiod asset. If you evver want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love
      to write somje material for your blogg in exchange for a link back to mine.

      Please bblast me an email if interested. Kudos!

    4. Hi it’s me, I am also visiting this website regularly,
      this website is truly pleasant and the viewers are actually sharing good thoughts.

    5. I delight in, lead to I found exactly what I was having a look for.
      You have ended my 4 day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a
      great day. Bye

    6. Squats also strengthen the leg muscles (quadriceps, hamstrings and calves) which are essential
      for stability. Yes, if you just make sure that you do this routine on a regular
      basis, you can actually lose those flabs in your thighs. Keep
      it soft and control your movement up and down, don.

    7. Great info. Lucky me I discovered your website by accident (stumbleupon).
      I hage book marked it for later!

    8. The backend part of your company supports these
      profit centers. However Yahoo marketing and other pay per
      click search engines offer some excellent traffic at a more reasonable price.
      Daily, even hourly, businesses can see how many individuals clicked on their ads and the traffic that is being driven to their website.

    9. You really make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I might by no means understand. It seems too complex and very vast for me. I am looking forward for your next publish, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!|
