LeBron James gets jury duty

There is no way to stop LeBron James in the court. That is, unless you sequester him and threaten him with contempt if he fails to follow the judge's instructions.

Oh, you thought I meant the other court. No. Not today at least.

LeBron James had to take a day off of his offseason training/whatever it is LeBron James does in the offseason on Thursday to perform his civic duty. LeBron James was called for jury duty in Akron, Ohio.

Wonder what happened when the venire popped out James' name and the clerk of court had to send that letter out? I am sure there were plenty of people hoping to stick James in some boring tax case that would take weeks to resolve.

Ohio's revenge aside, James was not selected for the jury. He was on his couch watching Celtics/Lakers reruns from 1986 on NBATV six hours later.

I hope the NBA used those six hours wisely to try to get some type of edge on James. Not likely.
