PLAYERS: LeBron JamesMike Brown
TEAMS: Miami Heat
MIAMI LeBron James is in full playoff mode. Well, maybe. The Miami Heat star said he has given up his cell phone to concentrate on the playoffs. But such a task can be tough in this era. Sideline reporter Craig Sager interviewed James for NBA TV following Tuesdays Game 2 against Milwaukee. He asked James about cutting off communication during the playoffs. I can use yours? James asked Sager, who said he could borrow his phone. So there it is, Ill use yours . Im back before cell phones were invented. Its the second straight year James has turned his phone off during the playoffs. It worked last season, as James won his first NBA title. James also vows to do like he did last year and give up Twitter. The last tweet he sent out was last Saturday, the day before Miamis playoff opener, when he wrote, Zero Dark Thirty-6 Activated!

LeBron James is cutting out technology to focus on the playoffs

LeBron James knows how important this postseason is for his legacy. Winning the first ring of his career was a major milestone, but NBA legends win multiple championships.

LeBron James wears capri pants (PIC)

I’m not judging.  I’m just pointing out that LeBron James wears the same type of pants that your wife or girlfriend (or both) does. LeBron took some time to pose for this picture (which was posted to his Facebook page) after the Heat’s Game Two win. Like I said, I’m not judging.  But those pants look much much much better on my wife. Facebook  

LeBron James makes a bizarre press conference fashion choice

After the Miami Heat’s game one victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James wore a bizarre sweater to the post game press conference.  I guess if you’re the best basketball player in the world you can do stuff like this, but it can’t be recommended.  I hope his teammates gave him a lot of grief for wearing this hideous thing.

Milwaukee must play perfectly to match Miami

To put into context the challenge any team faces in a seven-game series, just take a gander at Miami's regular season results. The Heat lost just four times in their last 41 games dating back to Jan. 27 - with one of those losses coming without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Any team that plans on knocking out the defending NBA champions must find a way to beat them four times...

Carmelo Anthony Might Keep LeBron James From Being the First Unanimous MVP

Carmelo Anthony did it again last night by dropping 34 on the Boston Celtics to lead his team to a 87-71 victory Tuesday night.
