Miami Heat’s Chris Silva Hugs Mom For First Time In Years During Pre-Game Emotional Reunion

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Heat forward Chris Silva got the surprise of a lifetime Friday evening.
Silva, 23, who left his home country of Gabon, in Africa in 2012, had only seen his mom only once in the past several years.
On Friday, Chris’s mom, Carine surprised his son to tears just hours before tipoff in front of his coach and teammates at the American Airlines Arena.
It was a reunion three years in the making and a moving one for mom, son, Heat players, and everyone in attendance.
Chris had been in the middle of a center court meeting with the team when all of a sudden, his mom walked in on them. Chris could not contain his tears and both mom and son locked in an emotional embrace.

It’s been 3 years since @SilvaObame has seen his mother. Tonight they reunited and it was everything you could imagine and more.
