Former Warriors forward David Lee marries tennis star Caroline Wozniacki

Just about every woman dreams of her wedding day. 

Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki's recent nuptials to former Warriors forward David Lee were no different.

But imagine her union being planned on a Pinterest board. It would look something like this: 

- Jimmy Choo custom heels

- Custom Oscar De La Renta wedding gown

- Must take place in Italy at Castiglion del Bosco Hotel in Tuscany (the same venue in which Cy Young Award pitcher Justin Verlander and supermodel Kate Upton were wed)

- Tennis star Serena Williams to be a bridesmaid

- Fireworks

Ya know, something small and intimate.

According to TMZ Sports, those in attendance included NBA stars Pau Gasol and Harrison Barnes. NFL quarterback turned TV show host Jesse Palmer was also there along with tennis pros Angelique Kerber, Agnieszka Radwańska and Urszula Radwańska. 

The two were engaged toward the end of 2017 in Bora Bora where Lee popped the question with an eight-carat stunner diamond because eight is Wozniacki's "lucky number." 

What Klay Thompson said to Kevin Durant about re-signing with Warriors

What Klay Thompson said to Kevin Durant about re-signing with Warriors

Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant were unrestricted free agents this summer.

While Thompson re-signed with the Warriors, KD chose to join the Brooklyn Nets.

Outside of one simple message, the five-time All-Star Thompson didn't say much to the 10-time All-Star Durant in terms of recruiting him to stay with Golden State.

“I mostly just let him be, but I told him we could have the greatest dynasty ever,” Klay told Mark Medina of USA Today Sports.

Oh what could have been.

The Warriors won the title in 2015 and dropped Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals after winning an NBA single-season record 73 games during the regular season.

With Durant onboard, Golden State captured back-to-back championships in 2017 and 2018, and almost assuredly would have accomplished the three-peat if KD and Klay had been fully healthy against the Raptors a couple of months ago.

A core -- healthy of course -- of Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Durant and Thompson would have remained the favorites for years to come. But that isn't how things played out.

"A change of heart, man," Thompson told Medina. "But I’m never going to hold it against him. He wanted to go to New York City. There’s nothing wrong with that.”

That is correct.

Klay Thompson believes Warriors win NBA Finals if he doesn't tear ACL

Klay Thompson believes Warriors win NBA Finals if he doesn't tear ACL

The play forever will go down in NBA history. Klay Thompson clutching his knee in agony on the Oracle Arena floor in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals is a sight Warriors fans wish they could erase. 

But it also brings up one of the biggest what-ifs ever in basketball. What if Thompson cleanly finished his dunk attempt with 2:22 left in the third quarter against the Raptors and never tore his ACL? 

For Thompson, the answer to that scenario is an easy one. 

“In my mind, yes, we would’ve won if I didn’t get hurt,” Thompson told The Athletic's Marcus Thompson. “But that’s just the nature of sports, you know? What-ifs? It doesn’t matter. It’s if you do your deed or not. In my mind, I think we would’ve. But you never know. That’s the hard part you’ve got to accept." 

Klay was at his best when he went down. He scored 30 points in 32 minutes in Game 6, and that was just the continuation of a fantastic series against Toronto. Thompson averaged 26 points in five games while shooting a ridiculous 59.4 percent from 3-point range. Catching fire isn't anything new for the five-time All-Star, but this might have been the best version of Thomson anyone has seen. 

He also knows the reality of injuries. While Thompson has been extremely durable for the Dubs over his eight-year career, he has seen stars go down in the past against Golden State on the biggest stage. 

Rehabbing from his own injury now gives him a much different perspective. 

"I look at all the guys who had bad luck getting injured against us the last few years, and I’ve honestly become so much more sympathetic," Thompson. "Yeah. That’s just the nature of the beast.”

Despite Kevin Durant leaving in free agency and the Warriors dealing with a whole new roster, Thompson believes the team's dynasty is far from over. But this dynasty, and the future of the NBA, could have looked a lot different with a healthy Klay Thompson in the rest of Game 6 and beyond. 

What-ifs have happened before and they will happen again. For Warriors fans, however, this one will sting for a lifetime.
