Russell Westbrook's girlfriend Nina Earl

UPDATE 09/03/2014: Russell Westrbook's girlfriend Nina Earl is a proud woman. Because today, she is officially Russell Westbook's fiancé Nina Earl.

The happy couple posted pictures to Instagram of her ring, with Russ captioning, Nothing even matters.." @ninamari3_ forever my lady! LOVE YOU!!!! The couple, who has dated since their time at UCLA together, have not announced any wedding plans (jeez, it's been 24 hours folks), but knowing Russell's penchant for,... umm.... shall we say,... fashionable(?) press game outfits, his wedding tux could be one for the ages. We'll definitely be keeping an eye out for those wedding pics.

Until then, congrats to Russell and Nina.

An observant reader tipped us off to this one, and it appears to be true. Though there's limited information, and we're relying on some rumor and circumstance, here's what we know.

Russell Westbrook is dating a girl named Nina who he met during his time at UCLA. Nina stayed in school after Russell took off for OKC to to run the point for his Thunder squad. She graduated from UCLA in 2011 after playing four years of basketball for the Bruins. In the 2010-2011 UCLA Women's Basketball Media Guide, she provides a lot of information, most interestingly that her favorite basketball player is none other than Russell Westbrook. I mean, if that's not definitive proof they're dating, I don't know what is.

What? You need something more substantial than that?
Fine. Russell and Nina have talked to each other repeatedly on Twitter, although no definitive examples of a relationship can be found from those transcripts. Additionally, albeit a less than completely accurate website, MediaTakeOut did show pictures of Nina and Russell taking a vacation with Westbrook's family. The same website reported that their source passed along these pictures as well as first hand information supporting the rumor that they were dating.
As we said, no concrete proof, but there's certainly some smoke around this rumor. Is there fire? If the latest internet buzz is any indication there might be.
There are rumors coming from an online comment board (credible sources galore here), Nina is being strongly considered for VH1's Basketball Wives: LA cast. If that happens, I'm sure we'll be able to find out the truth to that rumor.

One final note... Darren Collison did NOT marry Nina in the summer of 2011. He married a woman named Keyosha Sanders, just in case you happen to find that somewhere else)

    Russy, is handsome and I love his style and Nina is pretty, they make a cute couple. Bigeasymom, I saw your pic on another website, the girl in the pic looks old enough to be Russy's mother and she wasn't even cute. Get over it, he is in love with Nina!!! Check out Nina's instagram, he sends her flowers etc, he's in love!!

    I'm 71 and I think all of our OKC Thunder guys are hunks, wish I had a daughter their age, the have so much character and share the spotlight well. We are so proud to have them in Oklahoma. Love to watch them play. Nina , don't worry about the gossip, they are just wishful thinkers trying to get under your skin. Russell seems like a great young man, whose parents raised him well.

    You are beautiful. Always be truthful,kind and loving. Westbrook seems to be a gentleman. I love the GQ dressing. Looks great on him. Remember, his Mom is a queen. So,I know he wants a princess to become his queen so,you two can have beautiful children when the time is right. Make sure you enjoy each other as friends and lovers. Keep GOD in your lives and everything else will follow. Be blessed.
