MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – NBA MVP LeBron James says he needed an assist to get to a Justin Timberlake and Jay Z concert Friday night.

The Miami Heat star posted a video of him saying he was following ”a police escort on the wrong side of the street” to get to the concert at Sun Life Stadium. The eight-second video shows James’ vehicle behind others with police lights flashing, as oncoming traffic on the three-lane side of the road allowed them to pass.

It was unclear what law enforcement agency was providing the escort, which appeared to be taking place in the vicinity of the stadium. Traffic around much of the area was clogged because of the concert.

The video was posted to James’ social media accounts.

    In America, this is unusual, big news, and rejected by the citizens. In the PHL, this was normal until PNoy took over.

      And your point is?

        Clearly, counterflow is news in America. That’s the point. In the PHL, no need to broadcast it because politicians and the wannabes do it all the time sans wang-wang.
