High School Superstar Lebron James has been ruled ineligible for the rest of the season for accepting free clothes. The OHSAA announcement comes just 4 days after James was cleared for accepting a Hummer SUV as a gift from his mother. Last Saturday, James was given two throwback jerseys from a clothing store worth $845. OHSAA bylaws specify that an athlete forfeits his amateur status by "capitalizing on athletic fame by receiving money or gifts of monetary value." James and his top ranked Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary team are scheduled to play Zanesville on February 14th in Akron.
