The NBA star shares, "I'm thankful to be able to share the rest of my life with you."

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook shared a sweet moment with his "suga" in honor of their one year anniversary.

One thing for sure is that Russell doesn't go a week without sharing a moment with his wife on IG, but this week's post was extra special as the couple celebrates their first wedding anniversary.

Yesterday the NBA star and his college sweetheart each shared a throwback moment from their lavish wedding to celebrate the occasion.

"One of the best days of my life with the most beautiful women in the world. I'm thankful to be able to share the rest of my life with you. Love You. Happy 1 year suga."

Nina later took to Instagram to reflect on a year with her best friend:
"Happy Anniversary to my crazy best friend and partner in life. A lot can change in a year, but some things just stays the same. Thank you for continuing to make me laugh through the good and the bad, and chasing me around even though you know you've already got me. I love you! Happy 1 Year!"

The couple met while they both played basketball for UCLA and they've been together ever since.
