By: John Mamola

How long could you go without your cell phone?  If you’re Miami Heat superstar Lebron James, only as long as you’re in the NBA playoffs.  For the second straight year, James will be giving up his cell phone and posting on his Twitter account in order to focus strictly on basketball and winning another NBA championship with the Heat.

Sideline reporter Craig Sager interviewed James for NBA TV following Tuesday’s 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, I’ll use yours. ... I’m back before cell phones were invented.’’

During last year’s run to the title, James often was spotted reading books in the locker room. He expects that to continue this postseason.
