WNBA basketball player, Monica Wright ended her year long relationship with NBA All-Star and DC native, Kevin Durant. The ending of something as personal as a promise to marry one would think would be handled in private between the two. But basketball’s sweetheart duo’s relationship ended to much criticism and backlash primarily directed toward one person. That person was not Durant for being unfaithful but rather Wright for ending the relationship.
The sentiment? A woman would have to be crazy to leave an NBA star. Monica Wright recently broke her silence explaining it was her relationship with God that made the decision easy. She recently told Risen Magazine, “There was a lot of criticism over it. But I think God had my back in it. Because I hold to what I know to be true, that is what God will reward instead of what people on the earth think is a good catch.” She goes on to express her concern for the younger generations of girls who are challenged with learning their Godly value in a society that tells them they should act, behave, speak or dress contrary to who they are to Him.
She says, “I feel like it’s harder for the younger girls. But if my story can help them in any way, then it was worth it.”
