LeBron James has jury duty; not selected for jury

ProBasketballTalk

UPDATE 11:42 am: LeBron did indeed show up at the Summit County Courthouse near Akron for Jury duty, but he was not selected (shocking) and was set home with the rest of the jurors at 10:30 a.m., reports the Akron Beacon-Journal.

11:17 am: The odds of LeBron James actually getting put on a jury is about the same as Emily Ratajkowski calling to see what I’m up to tonight…

Nonetheless, nobody gets out of jury duty.

Much like getting the car registered or paying taxes, there are certain parts of the bureaucracy, certain parts of our civic duty nobody gets out of. Not LeBron, not anyone.

But again, expect the courthouse to let him go by lunch. He’s not going to be on a slip-and-fall civil case jury.

Greg Oden chose Heat because they won’t need him early, dinner at Chili’s

ProBasketballTalk

Former No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden chose the Miami Heat on Friday night in a move that was widely-anticipated for awhile, but never quite confirmed until the numerous reports erupted across the internet. Most speculated he would choose the Heat because they’re the back-to-back NBA champions, but the oft-injured center gave a few other reasons that made him decide to take his talents to South Beach.

Oden and his agent spoke to Grantland, ESPN and Fox Sports Florida after the decision became public, saying that the ability to work himself back slowly was one of the reasons he decided on the two-year deal with the Heat.

Oden said it was a “big deciding factor” that Heat officials made it clear to him that he “wouldn’t be needed as much early in the season” as he works his way back from more than three years out of the league.
