Three-time NBA champion and Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James took to Twitter on Tuesday to praise a man who was recorded in a video breaking up a fight between two young black boys.

“So dope!! #Salute the homie who stepped in and spoke real to our young generation. We all need a word or 2 to help!” he tweeted.

The video shows two boys getting into a fist fight in the middle of the street. A handful of youngsters, presumably teenagers, are seen standing by and egging on the duo to continue their physical battle.

Just seconds into the fight, a man races in to offer a word of advice to the two sparring boys.

“You all are the real cowards,” the man tells the kids who were recording the fight on their phones.

The man tells the boys that the bystanders were having their entertainment at the expense of their fight.

“They’re all laughing at you, but you’re really upset,” he says to one of the boys in the fight. “And you’re really upset,” he points at the other kid.

“You’re kids no more, you’re men!” he tells the two kids

The man eventually manages to get his point across the boys, who are seen shaking their hands towards the end of the video.

The four minute-long video has been retweeted over 50,000 times as of now.
