The Los Angeles Lakers likely won’t be racking up any championship rings this season, but Larry Nance, Jr. didn’t let that stop him from adding some jewelry to his collection. The Lakers third-year power forward announced that he’d proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Hailey Pince, in a sweet Instagram post Tuesday. And she said yes!
Lakers President of Basketball Operations scoffed at the idea of giving up Nance to interested teams earlier Tuesday, but Pince appears to be even more committed to keeping him around:
Congrats to the happy couple from all of us here at Silver Screen and Roll. Basketball is why anyone reads this blog or pays attention to the Lakers, but it’s always cool to see real-life happiness like this off of the court for these players as well.
