Well, we guess he's kept his official residency in Ohio, because LeBron James is serving jury duty in Akron today. Yep, not even the NBA's MVP can get out of jury duty.

JamesInstagrammed and Tweeted out his jury duty outfit today. It's much more casual than his usual post-game press conference attire. Seems like he's trying to look as possible for the most famous 6'8 person on the planet.

Yes, that's a Cleveland Indians fan hat he's wearing, and we don't blame him for both trying to cover up and wear some local swag while he sits in a room with a bunch of Ohioans. That could get potentially awkward.

No word on whether the Akron court house makes you watch nothing but Sandra Bullock movies all day while you wait to get picked for a jury like they do here in Miami-Dade.
