Alexis and Amar’e were in the backroom as they weren’t of legal drinking age. Amar’e spotted her and walked over to her and introduced himself. Amar’e revealed,
“The night before we met, I’d said a prayer for the type of woman I wanted as my wife. Alexis and I started talking about her life, her family, what her future plans were—a real conversation.”
