Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats may have lost to the Miami Heat last night, but MJ has officially won something else that's hot and from Miami: the hand of Yvette Prieto. According to Charlotte news station WCNC, Jordan asked Prieto to marry him on Christmas Eve. Obviously, she said yes.
Jordan began dating Prieto, a Cuban-American model, sometime in 2008. The two have been spotted out in Miami through out their relationship, and back in 2009 Jordan plopped down $300,000 for a home in Kendall.
Jordan divorced his wife of 17 years, Juanita, back in 2006. Prieto meanwhile reportedly used to date Enrique Iglesias Jr.
