LeBron James Says He Has Shifted into ‘Playoff Mode’


LeBron James says he has indeed pre-emptively switched into so-called “playoff mode” with three weeks left in the regular season. The Cleveland Cavaliers star’s recent social media activity is only an extension of that, a source familiar with James’ thinking told ESPN.com.

“I have,” James said when asked about whether he has consciously shifted his disposition. “A little bit sooner than normal, but you know I understand that [the postseason is] right around the corner and I want to start mentally preparing myself for the distance. So mentally I’m just being a little more sharper minded as of late, just gearing toward it. Understanding that it’s right around the corner and it’s going to be very, very challenging.”
