LeBron James got emotional in his postgame interview with ESPN's Doris Burke after the Cleveland Cavaliers disposed of the Toronto Raptors in six games to advance to the NBA Finals.

James is the first player since 1966 to advance to six straight NBA finals. He has won twice with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 2013.

“I’ve been very humble and gracious that the man above has given me an opportunity to play the game that I love,” James said after the 113–87 victory. “I get to do that every single night out here in front of my fans. It’s very emotional just to be a part of this. This is my sixth straight.”
