Immediately after clinching his sixth consecutive NBA Finals appearance, LeBron James gave full respect to the Raptors fans still in attendance after Toronto’s Game 6 loss.

“Do you hear this? Much respect to these fans, this country, this is unbelievable. I’ve never been a part of something like this in my 13-year career. This is special, they really appreciate what their team did.”

Following his classy remarks, James was able to show his sense of humor with teammates in Cleveland’s postgame presser.
