To paraphrase Robert Frost, a jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer ... and maybe LeBron James.
The two-time NBA champion has been called for jury duty in his hometown of Akron, according to Zac Jackson of Fox Sports Ohio.
LeBron is on jury duty today in Akron. That won't be a distraction at all.

The notion of the 6' 8" NBA superstar being selected for a jury certainly garnered some interest on social media on Thursday morning.
@FSOhioZJackson dude, please let him get put on the jury. that’s a sitcom right there.

LeBron tweeted that he's got jury duty today. I would think he'd be the first pick in the Nerf hoop juror room game.

If Lebron was on my jury I would run up to him and say "I'm guilty Lebron..Guilty of loving you in the First Degree"...#AmIRite

So Lebron has jury duty. By the rules of heirarchy, the judge should automatically defer to The King, right?
