Many regarded it as the end of an era in franchise history as the Big Three are long gone from the court (aside from Tim Duncan being assistant coach). Here's some cute moments that got fans in their feelings.

The entire tribute video
Six minutes of straight tears.
When Manu said he and Tony never had an argument
Throughout all their years of being teammates, Manu said he and Tony never had a fight. Now that's what you call a solid friendship!
When Tony walked onto the court with his family
He really is all grown up!
When Coach Pop said he loves TP
After commending Tony for the player and man he is, and saying how honored he was to watch him grow up from the young kid to the dad/retiree he is today, Coach Pop said he loves him. Aww!
When Tony praised Manu and Timmy
"I love you two. We'll be together forever."
When Timmy called Tony his point guard
And he said there's no one else he would have rather had as his PG. We can't hold it in.
When Tony thanked Coach Pop for believing in him
AND he called him "Poppo." How cute is that?!
When TP saw his jersey in the rafters
How can you look at his face and not see the kid who came from France at the age of 19?! This moment hit us real hard.
When Tony asked everyone at the AT&T Center to join him in one last "Go Spurs Go"
This seriously gave us chills.
