Rachel Adekponya is well-known to the world because of being married to a celebrity. 

She is the wife of an Australian professional basketball player, Aron Baynes

She is married to her boyfriend, Aron Baynes, after dating for a few years. 

The wedding date of the adorable couple is not known. 

The husband and wife are happy to be with each other in this romantic affair.

Husband’s Open Letter 

After the murder of George Floyd, everyone is asking for justice and equality. 

A few days ago, Aron wrote an open letter that focused on the subject of equality

He and his wife are a combination of a few races. Very few people know that his wife is black. 

He is someone who believes there should be equality. 

He does not want anyone to be judged based on their skin color, and hence he is teaching his children to love people from all backgrounds and ethnicities

When his children have grown up enough to understand, he will educate them on injustices and the equalities of the world. 

He and his wife believe that education starts at home and that the children should learn through both words and actions not to pass judgment on people based on their color or background.

Here is the post by him.

Her husband is finally coming back after a year

The latest update says her husband Aron is working out just for the NBA teams after a year-long freak spine injury. 

No doubt, he is taking a huge step in order to come back to the NBA. To let you know, Aron got injured while in the 2020 Olympics held in Tokyo

As per ESPN, he is holding workouts on Friday in Las Vegas. He was actively playing for Team Australia but injured his neck while playing a game against Italy. 

Not only that, but later, he again fell down in the team’s bathroom, which led him to be unconscious and lose the ability even to walk. 

Dr. David Hughes, an Australian chief medical officer, then declared that his case was a complicated one and also claimed it to be a serious one and was moved to the hospital for further tests. 

It’s been said that he got hospitalized for two whole months. Nevertheless, in January, he began playing basketball again.

Boston Celtics will not sign Aron now?

It’s been said that we will get to see Aron in a game soon but not with Boston Celtics

As per the Boston Herald’s Adam Himmelsbach, recently, Boston had checked into Aron, which had led them to decide not to sign Aron

However, all of Australia has been serving Aron’s way back from that horrible spinal injury. 

Well, the Celtics do need a man as a backup, but also need that player who can play for those heavy minutes in order to preserve big men like Al Horford and Robert Williams III for the postseason. 

If we go towards the reality, Aron had not been active in playing high-level basketball after his serious injury. 

So, we assume that due to Aron’s age and amount of recovery, Boston Celtics might not want to sign Aron as of the current scenario. 

We wish that Aron will latch with another team to show his impressive effort to return to the association. However, it will be odd to see Aron in a different uniform.
