" After stalling, James decided on the next two players on his list: Dr. J and Larry Bird. "You give me three, oh my God," James said.  The interviewer then pointed out that James picked Bird instead of Magic Johnson, a controversial choice considering their rivalry.

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!

Writers from around the Tribune Co. discuss whether Miami Heat President Pat Riley should bring back the core players from his two-time reigning NBA champion team. Feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment of your own.

LeBron James deserves better. He's helped deliver two straight NBA titles to the city of Miami, earning a pair of Finals MVP awards along the way. You'd think he'd be able to kick back, relax and enjoy another victory parade Monday, riding with his Heat teammates past some 400,000 fans. But nooooo.
