James was back in his hometown for jury duty, though the Miami Heat star never had the chance to serve as a juror.
The NBA's MVP posted a photo of himself on social media Thursday morning with the caption: "Jury duty time. Time to serve my civic duty."
James arrived at the Summit County Courthouse around 8:20 a.m., according to the Akron Beacon Journal (http://apne.ws/1cyJaQy ). But he was sent home along with the rest of the jury pool about 9:30 after two potential criminal trials did not take place.
James read a book while waiting "quietly and appreciatively" in the office of the jury foreman, Sheriff's Lt. Kandy Fatheree told the newspaper.
