When you're the King, you don't have to suffer through traffic like the rest of us. 

While on his way to a Jay Z and Justin Timberlake concert in Miami, LeBron James received a police escort on the wrong side of the road to beat the traffic. James shared the experience in an Instagram video with the caption, "They treat us so well! Needed it cause traffic was nuts!!" 

UPDATE: Monday, August 19, 4:33 p.m. ET

According to TMZ, Miami police officers broke protocol by escorting James the eight blocks to the concert and will determine what punishment, if any, is appropriate for the officers. They also report that according to their sources, Jay Z would not begin his performance until the Heat forward showed up.

End of Update---

LeBron definitely made it to the venue at a reasonable time, as evidenced by the video he later shared.
