Derrick Jones Jr. had one of the biggest nights of his life on Tuesday. He proposed to his longtime girlfriend Shakara in Paris. For the Chicago Bulls star, the city of love was the perfect place to let the love of his life know his deepest love for her. It was a private party and Shakara was seen sitting at a table with a bunch of her friends and relatives when she got a surprise from her high-flying former Dunk Contest Champion from the Bulls.
When she was sitting and kept talking, she saw her boyfriend walking towards her with a mic in his hand. Derrick started, “Man! It’s about that time…So, I just got a question for Shakara. Will you make me the luckiest man in the world? Will you marry me?” As Jones stayed on his knees with a ring in his hand, she kept looking around as if she was expecting someone to tell her if it was real. It was quite obvious that she didn’t expect anything of that sort from her lover, as her eyes could tell the entire story of the most unexpected surprise.
She made a gesture in disbelief asking Jones if it was for her. “Yes, it’s for you,” he convinced her. He again repeated the question, “Will you marry me?” Shakara replied, “Hell yeah!” As the Bulls star was putting the ring on her finger, kept looking in amazement and at one point she exclaimed, “Oh my God!” All of Jones Jr. and Shakara’s friends and family were in attendance and cheered for the NBA Star for his next course of life as he shouted in excitement. “She said yes,” he shouted.
