LeBron James starts jury duty

LeBron James has traded one court to another.

James evidently received one of those little notices in the mail and and tweeted selfies of himself in a Cleveland Indians cap preparing to leave for jury duty. Although he did not say where he’s serving, he did divulge that he was ready to “serve my civic duty” and later was spotted in an Akron, Ohio, court.

He wasn’t needed today and, according to the Akron Beacon-Journal, will report again Friday. Chances are that he’s not going to last very long, particularly if any of the attorneys remember The Decision.
