Pro Basketball Player's Romantic Proposal Is Inspired By A Scene From "Love And Basketball"
Jun 1, 2015
If this all looks somewhat familiar, it's because it was inspired by a pivotal scene from the film "Love and Basketball", in which Monica (played by Sanaa Lathan) challenges the soon-to-be-married Quincy (Omar Epps) to a game of one-on-one basketball for his heart.
Canadian basketball star Alex "Superman" Johnson took a page right out of Hollywood recently when he proposed to his girlfriend, former UNC Greensboro guard Brey Dorsett, during a one-on-one basketball game. Playing in a gym full of friends and onlookers, Johnson doesn't go easy on his beloved and takes an early 2-0 lead. On his third drive, he fakes an injury and stays down while a buddy secretly hands him the ring. That's when he proposes and, like any good Hollywood ending, she says yes.
