LeBron James is not hiding his emotions tonight.
As the clock struck zero and the Cleveland Cavaliers were pronounced winners in Game 7 of the NBA finals, the athlete was overcome with tears when he realized his team finally won a title.
"Cleveland's long sports nightmare has ended," ABC announcers shared as cameras caught the player on the basketball court shedding tears of joy. "The drought is over. 52 years, time to celebrate a title."
When being interviewed after the game, LeBron tried to explain what exactly he was feeling at the moment.
"I gave everything that I have. I put my heart and my blood and my sweat and my tears in this game and—against all odds, against all odds, I don't know why we want to take the hardest road. I don't know why the man above gave me the hardest road but there's nothing the man above going to put new situations that you can't handle," he shared. "And I just kept the same, positive at attitude like, instead of saying why me? I was saying this is what he wanted me to do. Cleveland this is for you!"
