This year has been a bit of a rough one for… well, everyone. The news was terrible, the climate is a disaster and, honestly, that Pete and Ariana thing took a lot out of us. That’s why it’s nice to just see a positive story out there for once, like LeBron James cheering up his kid when he was feeling down during a basketball game.

Because all of us could use a little LeBron sound bite telling us that we did a good job.

James posted a video to his Instagram Wednesday where he talked up his son Bryce, telling him, “You get too down on yourself for no reason. You made three of the biggest plays of the game.”

He went on to inform Bryce of the ways he contributed to winning a game his team “had no business winning” — pretty cool coming from LeBron James. He capped off the speech with those words every kid wants to hear from their parents: “Good job. I’m proud of you.”

The heartwarming moment immediately resonated with the internet (which probably just needs a big LeBron hug right now, TBH).

Other Twitter users were a little more cynical about the event. Why was he mic’d up at his kid’s youth basketball game? Who was filming the whole thing from across the court? Isn’t this just a big LeBron self-promotion?

Yes, this is productive self-promotion. And yes, it’s weird that LeBron was mic’d up for such an intimate conversation. But that doesn’t eliminate the fact that he told his son what he needed to hear to make him feel better after a hard-won game. We love Dad LeBron.
