Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook helped a team manager propose
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are apparently adorable romantics at heart.
Earlier this year, Durant, Westbrook and other members of the Oklahoma City Thunder helped their equipment manager Wilson Taylor propose to his girlfriend, Taylor told USA Today in a story about the team’s close-knit nature.
Taylor has worked for the Thunder franchise since Durant’s rookie season, and considers the former MVP one of his best friends. The plans for the proposal began on March 5, when Durant pulled Taylor aside at a dinner to make sure Taylor had everything he needed for when he decided to pop the question. Taylor told Durant he wanted to put his girlfriend through a scavenger hunt, a plan which KD approved.

On the big day, Taylor took his girlfriend through a tour of Oklahoma City, which included a free-throw session with Westbrook, drinks with Nick Collison and then finally, Durant waiting to hand the ring to Taylor at the Gaylord Pickens Oklahoma Hall of Fame museum.
Sounds like quite the proposal.
