Spurs grant elderly fan's birthday wish before 'declawing' raptors

A woman's 82nd birthday wish was fulfilled before the San Antonio Spurs pushed out a 101-97 win over the Toronto Raptors Monday night.

A woman in a wheelchair sitting in the stands at the AT&T Center Monday was spotted hoisting a sign that said: "All I want for my 82nd birthday is a hug from Manu & Patty."

Luckily for the fan, identified in a social media post simply as "Mary Alice," #20 and #8 were happy to oblige!  

The encounter between Mary Alice, Manu, and Patty was recorded in a series of pictures and videos posted to the Spurs Facebook page, and it quickly won the hearts and attention of fans, going viral by the end of the game.

Check out the special moments between the trio below. Happy Birthday, Mary Alice!
