Lebron James was declared ineligible: by the Ohio High School Athletic Association for accepting two authentic throw-back jerseys once worn by Hall of Fame football star Gale Sayers and basketball great Wes Unseld, which were together valued at $845. James posed for photographs, which were hung in the store, in compensation. As of today LJ is ineligible, and he can of course appeal the decision, but this has some wider implications in high school athletics. Lebron was making all this money for his school and now he gets a gift, getting a small cash-in for all he has done for his school, and he gets this. Now it is obvious that he did violate the rule, and I think that if that is the rule, then it should be enforced, but maybe in the future rules like these might need to be looked into, so that high school phenom’s can get some cash for their work. Also of note is that the McDonalds High School All American Game is to be held in Cleveland this year, and we can all figure out why it will be there, but if Lebron is ineligible, then he is no longer a high school player, and he can not participate.
