LeBron James may be finding out that while it's good to be king, bragging about the perks you receive might not be the best idea. The Miami Heat superstar posted a video on Instagram from inside a car following a police escort on the wrong side of the road to Sun Life Stadium for Friday night's Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert. He also tweeted a link to the video along with some comments that made him look a bit like a clueless celebrity loving his privileged life: They treat us so well!

LeBron James is slowly but surely defusing his haters' ammunition. First, he wins a championship with the Miami Heat, shedding the winless title that has plagued him for eight long seasons. Then he takes time out of his busy schedule to pose with a random couple getting married at the Ritz Carlton in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami.

LeBron James thinks pretty highly of himself, and why not? He's arguably the best all-around player in the NBA these days. So it makes sense that at least one of James' teammates would find it necessary to cultivate the NBA star's superstar status by donning the protective mask James has worn in recent games to protect his broken nose. Miami Heat teammate Chris Bosh posted a photo of himself wearing James' mask and a towel cape to Instagram on Thursday alongside the caption, "I'm BATMAN !

Earlier in the week, James commented that if they ever make a Mt. Rushmore for the NBA, he would be on it. James put Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson on there, and when asked if he would be there when his career is over, he told NBA TV's Steve Smith, "Yeah.

Touching another person's head is never a good idea, especially after that person just lost a contest that ended a 27-game win streak. One fan at Chicago's United Center clearly did not get that memo. As the Miami Heat's LeBron James walked into a tunnel toward the dressing rooms after the game against the Bulls, a fan in the stands reached down and attempted to snatch James' headband from him. James, a 6-foot-8, 250-pound forward, was not feeling the surprise assault on his head, and did a turn to stare down the fan for a few moments.

Some high school basketball fans in Northern California apparently thought that it would be funny to emulate LeBron James' former pregame ritual of tossing chalk into the air. Little did they know that their stunt might have cost their team the game. Before a game against rival Roseville High, Woodcreek fans who call themselves the "Black Mob" tossed baby powder into the air, replicating the reigning MVP's previous tradition. The prank backfired. The cloud of powder was so intense that the game was delayed to mop the court.
