Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade fulfilled the wish of a 90-year-old Pinay by playing basketball with her.
The 90-year-old grandmother Illuminada “Grandma Nelly” Magtoto challenged the NBA superstar to a one-on-one basketball game as her birthday wish. Wade made her wish come true and gladly accepted the challenge.
They met up and hung out for a few minutes in the Heat’s practice facility. They tossed a ball around for a few minutes with Wade doing some alley-oop for Grandma Nelly.
Wade also shared a photo on his Instagram account and wrote: “Today after shootard. I had the chance to meet this lovely lady. You never know the impact you have on people and meeting her made me realize yet again that my life is bigger than basketball. She presented a challenge to play me one on one for her 90th bday. Thanks to her family, the Miami Heat and TeamWade for making this wish come true. #biggerpurpose #hertearsalmostmademetear #happybday”
