LeBron James is too damn famous to sit in traffic like a regular person ... so he used a police escort to get him where he needed to go -- which happened to be a Jay Z / Justin Timberlake concert.
The Miami Heat star posted a video of the detour on Instagram Friday night. As it plays you can see LeBron following a cop car with blinking lights down the wrong side of a street in Miami ... successfully bypassing the massive traffic jam to his right.
He added the caption "They treat us so well. Needed it cause traffic was nuts!!"
It's unclear how LeBron managed to pull this off -- but his Instagram moniker is KingJames.
Too Big For Traffic ...
Uses Police Escort Instead
