After scoring 41 points and dishing out 11 assists and leading his team to a series-tying victory, LeBron James created a touching moment during his interview with NBA analyst Craig Sager Thursday night.

Sager, who has been covering the NBA for 30 years and who had never covered an NBA Finals game until Thursday night's game six in Cleveland, is battling terminal cancer.

He was allowed to cover the game after TNT and ESPN reached an agreement to get him on the air.

So naturally after the game was done and James had turned in his big effort, Sager had a chance to talk with him. The NBA legend took a moment to recognize Sager and what he has meant to the game over the years.
