LeBron James continues to mystify us all.
On Monday, the Cleveland Cavaliers star unfollowed the team’s official Twitter account, according to Twitter user @kanyecobain.
Although the move could be easily interpreted as simply what James does around playoff time in an effort to stay away from social media, some have taken several approaches to his recent actions. Every year prior to the postseason, James launches “Zero Dark 23,” a personal campaign in which he shuts off social media, limits cell phone use, and blocks out any distractions that social media may send his way.
However, because of his stature, many have speculated that James is sending a message to the Cavaliers and their front office about his time as a member of the team. The end of this season marks the final year of his two-year deal, which he signed in the summer of 2014 when he decided to return to Cleveland for his second stint with the team. With his recent behavior, there is talk that James unfollowed the Cavaliers because of his intentions to opt out of his contract and look for a new team.
Although he has the option to depart, James’ days in Cleveland may not be numbered, as it has been said that opting out of his deal could simply be a move to get more money.
When asked about the move following Monday’s game against the Denver Nuggets, James ignored the question and promptly ended his media session.
