Harper Hempel is no stranger to the NBA Community as she is popularly known as Jamal Murray’s girlfriend. The Denver Nuggets star especially has become exceedingly popular solely due to his contributions on the court. He is one of the most underrated stars in the league and could be a top-five guard at this point. While Murray enjoys the athlete’s life, Hempel is familiar with social media and business.
They met during college at the University of Kentucky. Somewhere between 2015 and 2016, when they were in their sophomore year in college, the relationship had begun. Hempel was a budding college athlete as well who played Volleyball. She was an exceptional player who helped her team win a couple of titles and herself an MVP award at one point.

The social media mishap took a massive toll on her life as she is nowhere to be seen with the Nuggets star. Things have been off the radar lately and fans are beginning to wonder if they’ve broken up. There isn’t much available to determine what their relationship status is.
On the bright side, Jamal Murray has been having a great time in the NBA. Despite missing out on the entire 2021-2022 season, he hasn’t lost his form in any way. Murray was one of the biggest reasons the Nuggets reached the Western Conference Finals in 2020. History repeated itself during the 2023 NBA Playoffs as well.
