When it comes to crafting the perfect proposal sometimes a full day of romantic gestures are in order, sometimes a flash mob does the trick and sometimes all you need is a basketball court — at least that was the case for Alex Johnson.
Johnson, a professional Canadian basketball player first met his girlfriend, Brey Dorsett during a pro-am game in college – Johnson played for North Carolina State and Dorsett played for Johnson C. Smith University.
In the heartwarming video, we watch as the two play a game of one-on-one. Brey was giving Alex a run for his money when suddenly Johnson falls to the ground, seemingly injured. His friend comes to the rescue and ever-so-subtly slips him an engagement ring. After that Johson miraculously recovers and turns up so that’s he’s now on one knee and then pops the question.
If this scenario seems a little familiar, it might be because Johnson took inspiration from the 2000 film, Love and Basketball which features a similar scene. It may not have been a totally original idea, but we love how Johnson put his own spin on the scene and proposed in a way that was perfectly suiting to him and fiancée. Congrats to the happy couple!
