NBA player Andre Roberson might have scored the biggest shot of his dating career.
It looks like the league's best defender (at least for Kevin Durant) and worst shooter from the Oklahoma City Thunder really delivers when it counts, as rumors of him going out with NBA 2KTV host and baller of a beauty Rachel Demita have been confirmed, following their recent exchange on Instagram. Notice how she even liked Thunder Nation's Twitter post.
According to a couple of followers, Roberson and Demita have been seeing each other for two months now, judging from several IG stories and photos of them together. The NBA All-Defensive Second Team member (2017) has been recovering from a knee injury since February (underwent surgery in May), so that explains the window for wooing her.
Roberson has established a reputation as one of the NBA's elite stoppers, but how about the apple of his eye? In an interview with Hollywood Life, Demita related that she's been shooting hoops her whole life, before stepping away from it for a few years. The 27-year-old eventually rekindled her love for the game, this time as a content creator on YouTube.
Upon being discovered by 2KTV, Demita got the chance to interview NBA superstars, from Shaq to Kevin Durant, whom she was previously gossiped to be involved with: "I was actually the first person hired for the show. Then we kind of built the team from there." Earlier this year, she became part of Team Lakers in the All-Star Celebrity Game, topscoring for her squad (17) in a losing effort.
Roberson could use some help—outside the romantic kind, at least—when it comes to shooting hoops (48% fg 26% 3p), and maybe Demita can be his new coach. We suggest replaying the videos below to study that oh-so fine form or have Demita do a new one about proper shooting mechanics. In return, he could teach her how to defend herself against thirsty commenters.
