Alex Caruso of the Los Angeles Lakers says he will be leaving social media when the NBA playoffs start in order to focus on one thing only. It will be his first postseason in his three-year NBA career.

“I’m going to be off social media, I’m not going to be talking to anybody but my close friends and family and teammates. For me, I’m pretty solely focused on what we need to do and what I’m here to do,” Caruso said, per Harrison Faigen.

This season, the 26-year-old guard is averaging 5.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 17.8 minutes per game. Caruso could see his role increase, as the Lakers will be without Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo. The latter is expected to join the team during the playoffs.
