An NBA Star Got Engaged Over The Weekend

Dennis Schroder and girlfriend Ellen.

A star point guard revealed good news over the weekend. Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder announced his engagement to girlfriend Ellen.

Schroder used an unconventional approach to asking his girlfriend's hand in marriage. The 24-year-old employed the use of a helicopter.

Being an NBA player has its perks. Schroder has had a busy offseason.

Earlier this summer he was included in a trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to the Atlanta Hawks in a salary dump for both teams. Oklahoma City landed the German point guard.

Just two weeks later, Schroder announced his engagement. "She said yes!!! It doesn’t matter what people are trying to say it’s not going to bring us apart! She’s the love of my life," he said on Instagram.

Ellen showed off the ring on her Instagram account.
