A video surfaced of NBA superstar Lebron James excitedly running onto the court to congratulate his son Lebron James Jr. during his AAU basketball tournament. At one point, James was so excited he shoes flew off his feet.

Folks immediately took to Twitter to slam the ball player for his “childlike behavior.”
I usually defend Lebron. And I gotta be honest if my son is ever throwing down alley oops I will probably lose my fucking mind. But this is absolutely ridiculous. This is like, bizarre childlike behavior. Whatta weirdo pic.twitter.com/9AcNqLfxao

At the same time, folks praised James for celebrating his son.
This is Crazy to see … you guys take what this man does off the court for granted ….. sounds like hate … My Dad has never been to ONE of my basketball Games … In fact I haven’t even seen my father in 4 Years lol ….. Don’t let this go over you’re head !!! https://t.co/LFknGFQ3rS

Lebron has set the standard this era for all fathers and even more so for black fathers. His son sees and feels the love and support from his dad. It’s never been seen on this level. They want to write the “his father wasn’t there” story instead of this one. THIS is goals! https://t.co/1jUNJk0TGa

The best thing about this video is lebron son didn’t catch the oop. He’s celebrating somebody else’s kid for doing something dope in an aau game.
