They say we get a bit softer with age. Now headed to his sixth consecutive NBA Finals and seventh in 13 seasons, old man LeBron James is starting to show that side.

James’ Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Toronto Raptors 113-87 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Friday night, and toward the end of a postgame interview with ESPN’s Doris Burke, James began to get a bit emotional.

We guess those first six trips — or maybe James’ 2-4 record in the Finals — hadn’t quite sunk in until just then.
