[Watch] America's Favorite 107-Year-Old Woman Hoops With the Harlem Globetrotters

That's weeks after Virginia McLaurin danced with President Obama and the Flotus.

Published March 16th

Virginia McLaurin captured our hearts for being the 106-year-old woman who danced with President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama at the White House last month.

Well, celebrating her 107th birthday this week, everyone's favorite grandma is back at it in another video that's bound to go viral — her learning some hoop tricks with the Harlem Globetrotters.

The world's famous basketball team visited the Roots Public Charter School in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, where McLaurin still volunteers, and got her out of her seat to participate in some of the razzle and dazzle that they do on the court.

In fact, they even taught her how to spin the basketball on her finger — one of the Globetrotters' most-iconic tricks through the years. After completing the trick, Virginia even hit one of the players with a high-five, as she walked away wearing a customized Globetrotters' jersey with the number 107 on the back. Why not?

What's best is TMZ Sports caught the whole interaction.

God bless Virginia McLaurin and her lovable spirit.
