MILWAUKIE, OR. (KPTV) -

Here's a story that will make you feel good to be a Blazers fan: coach Terry Stotts showed up for a very special birthday party.

Elsie of Milwaukie celebrated her 100th birthday with a huge party full of family and friends. She's a huge fan – not just of the Blazers, but of Stotts himself.

Elsie's grandson says he and his wife met Stotts by chance in the airport, and he ended up inviting Stotts to the party.

The Blazers emailed him saying they would send a gift, but instead Stotts showed up himself. He came with a special signed basketball and took pictures with anyone who asked.

Elsie's grandson says his grandma loves Stotts because of his attitude on the court, and how he always keeps his cool.
