Civic duty called for Miami Heat forward LeBron James as he was selected for jury duty in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, on Thursday.
James, who is spending his summer in Akron, tweeted a photo of himself leaving his house Thursday morning and wrote "time to serve my civic duty."
According to the Akron Beacon Journal, James drew a buzz at the Sutton County courthouse in downtown Akron when he arrived. He was not seated on a jury for trial and left the building at 10:30 a.m.
The league's reigning regular-season and NBA Finals MVP will go through the process again on Friday, the Beacon Journal reported.
