According to insiders, Wright is the perfect match for Durant because she's a "real chick." One source tells MTO, "She's not one of those celebs that's with Kevin for money or fame, she loves him and will hold him down through good times and bad."
Apparently the two are going strong, and they're totally "in love" - both on and off the court.
Jocks and Stiletto Jill claims that Wright recently said this about her budding relationship with Durant: “A lot of it has to do with basketball, that’s how we’ve known each other. But he’s helped me, coached me. He’s actually a type of player I want to be like.”
