At the time, distance was a factor, and career was too. “I was living in Atlanta and covering the NBA, so when I heard he was an NBA player, I said, ‘No way!’” Harlan jokes. “My friend gave him my number anyway, and I took my time to respond. Once we started talking, though, I couldn’t deny that she was right.” Harlan says that Dekker, 24, was “so persistent” that he quickly won her over. The pair dated for eight months before the athlete popped the question.
