Prior to tip-off on Friday night against the Atlanta Dream, Las Vegas Aces standout A'ja Wilson surprised one young fan to the point she was absolutely speechless meeting her idol.

That's what it's all about. The Aces superstar is one of the biggest names in the WNBA and clearly has a lot of fans. This one is evidently a huge follower of Wilson. There is a much bigger story behind it, however.
This was the first time the young girl had attended a WNBA game. Her mother surprised the girl with a brand new Las Vegas Aces A'ja Wilson jersey and tickets to Friday's game in Atlanta. Somehow, the video circled enough on social media and got back to Wilson and she made the heartwarming moment a reality. You love to see it.
Soooooo Kyn is a HUGE A'ja Wilson Fan and has been wanting to go to a WNBA Game. Last Night I surprised her with a new jersey and tickets to her very first WNBA GAME tonight in ATL. Here's her response….🥰 https://t.co/VcOxs33bDX

Even better? Wilson and the Aces spanked the Dream, winning 96-73. Wilson dropped a team-high 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds in the win. It really looks like it was the perfect night for the young fan, who not only got to meet her favorite WNBA player but also watched her ball out in impressive fashion.
What a gesture from A'ja Wilson. The fan will never forget this.
