Sacramento Kings Social Media Guy Engaged to Woman He Met Via Kings Twitter


Thanks to Sacramento Kings digital content guy Shahbaz Khan, there may be a huge uptick in social media managers of professional sports teams sliding into those DMs to find “the one”.

As you can see below, Shahbaz was doing his thing at work two years ago when he stumbled across a photo of diehard Kings fan Ferheen Khan that he just had to share on social. He followed protocol and asked for permission to use said photo, and the rest is history:

When you take the "engaging with fans" part of the job a bit too seriously… 💍 @ferheeeen #WeMetOnTwitter

The big question: Did Shahbaz really use Kings Twitter to pursue Ferheen? Yes, but he was doing his job first so it’s coo:

If you’re jonesing for more details on this Twitter love story, ABC 10 in Sacramento did some solid Journalism (capital J, of course) and learned that Shahbaz had recently moved to the Sacramento, didn’t know anyone, and saw that Ferheen had the same last name. He proceeded to shoot his shot and invited Ferheen and her brother out to game — a couple years later, they’re engaged in time for the De’Aaron Fox Era. Nice!

.@FrancesWangTV put the engagement story on @ABC10! @ferheeeen 😂
