USA TODAY

LeBron James will not be left off social media during the upcoming NBA playoffs.

After spending several seasons after setting himself a social media outage as what James himself called “Zero Dark Thirty-23” – a Los Angeles Lakers star, he said there was too much going on in the world on Tuesday, to relax while his team falls. at the Orlando, Florida Championships, Bubble. He described the family connection and “the uncertainty of what 2020 brought.”

“It will definitely have a different way of thinking, a different feeling,” James told reporters during a video conference. “I will not turn off my phone during this run. I can not afford it. I have to continue to register with my family every day. … I can’t afford to do it, I’ll just lose direct contact with everyone. ‘ “

“Under the circumstances, I will be as locked up as I can be. I will not cheat on my teammates, I will not cheat on my fans and I will not cheat on myself. I’ll be ready to go. “

James said his mother, Gloria, will check on him often, while his wife Savannah and children – Bronny, Bryce and Zhuri – are active on social media and posting funny family time videos when James is away.

In the past, playing off with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat, James gave up his social media from April to June while concentrating on the playoffs. Under these circumstances, however, he was able to fly home and spend time with his family. If Los Angeles reached the NBA Finals this year, James could watch them last 3 months.

When James left his family in early July to pursue Lakers practices, he tweeted that he hated leaving his family so much that he felt like he was “heading for an offer.”

“Communication can always be consistent and leadership can always be consistent, and that’s one thing I’ve always been in control of,” James said on Tuesday. “But you can’t replicate the real presence when you wake up and you’re in the living room or the kitchen, or outside playing with your kids or playing with your daughter, playing video games with your boys, or exercising with your boys. You can’t repeat that. I’m not there.

“But Savannah is a beast in what she does: She controls home and is the stone for our family. So I don’t have to worry about that. But you certainly have the missing factor, when you miss your family, you miss children and things of this nature. But thanks to Steve Jobs and the Apple team for having FaceTime, because it’s a beautiful thing, especially at a time like this. ‘ “
