A marriage proposal is one of the most heartfelt and scariest things a man can do for a woman he loves (or any combination of people — we are progressive at BDL). Even if the proposer is entirely sure that the proposee will say "yes," there's really no safe or normal way to tell another person that it'd be a good idea to spend the rest of their lives with each other. It's a decision governed by intense emotion, not logic, and the proposal must reflect that bond. For instance, when my brother recently proposed to his girlfriend, he recreated their first date without making the plan explicit. And it worked!
Not all proposals are so personal, though, and that's fine. Sometimes, it makes more sense to have a towel-waving NBA player help out. So, when a Kings fan wanted to propose to his girlfriend at a very special "Turducken Day" party — whatever that is — he enlisted the help of NBA gadfly Donte Greene. As befits a man who brings joy to the faces of all those who meet him, Donte helped secure an affirmative response.
