MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - A little girl who stole the hearts of the internet after posing like Minnesota Lynx player, Maya Moore, got to meet her hero in person.
Justice Sikakane Sr. took his daughter, Liliana, to the Lynx home opener earlier this month. After the game, she was inspired to pose like Moore, who had recreated Michael Jordan's "Wings" billboard. Sikakane snapped the photo while Liliana posed underneath Moore's billboard in Minneapolis and the tweet quickly caught fire online.
The Lynx invited Liliana to Lynx after practice Thursday. Moore and Liliana spread their wings once more, proving the iconic pose is one to enjoy for all basketball generations.
Liliana also got a signed poster of Moore and tickets to Friday night's Lynx game against the Mercury.
