This season of "The Bachelorette" is a gift that keeps on giving.

Not only is Rachel Lindsay gracefully handling the pressure of being the first-ever black lead of the franchise, but we have now found out that her dating history includes a well-known athlete.



All-Star Golden State Warriors player Kevin Durant to be exact!

According to Us Weekly, the duo were in a “pretty serious” relationship while they were undergraduates at the  University of Texas at Austin.

“They broke up when she went to law school,” the source said.
 
Yup, she chose school over basketball! Some would say she had her priorities straight.
 
Not that she ever stopped loving the sport. In the most recent episode of the show, Lindsay brought in NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to help lead a basketball camp with her suitors.

None of them came close to Durant’s skills though. The All-Star is currently in the NBA Finals trying to win his first championship ring with the Golden State Warriors.

We wonder how he feels seeing his ex-girlfriend on the show!
