Dwyane Wade was able to make a 90-year-old Grandma's dream become a reality when the Miami Heat superstar noticed through the internet that he'd been laid a challenge that he just couldn't ignore.
You throw better lobs than Mario Chalmers - Dwyane Wade
On October 21st, Wade was able to invite 90-year-old Illuminada Magtoto to the Miami Heat training complex for a little one-on-one basketball with the shooting guard.
Power of the Internet
Someone turned Wade onto the challenge that had been set by Magtoto after she put together a youtube video that asked her favourite superstar for a friendly competition.
She was hoping to hit the hardwood with Wade on her 90th birthday and the Heat legend would not disappoint as he organised for Magtoto to visit and shoot some jumpers with him.
Wade even joked around that the 90-year-old Grandma threw better lobs for him than teammate and point guard Mario Chalmers.
One of the most popular athletes in the NBA and certainly one of the nicest guys, Wade showed his appreciation of the support when he posted on his Instagram about the day he had spent with Magtoto.
Alongside images of himself with the lady wearing her Heat jersey, he had the picture captioned: "When someone else's happiness is your happiness, that is love."
Professional athletes like Wade have the ability to affect people's lives more than they can realise, this simple gesture to an adoring fan can make someones dreams come true and we applaud the character he has shown.
