Is LeBron James leaving Cleveland to go back to Miami? Is he having a problem with Cavaliers management? All these rumors and many more are floating around the internet thanks to a simple move that King James made on social media: he unfollowed the Cavs on Twitter.
Regardless of the speculation, James seems uninterested in putting the rumors — or some fans' fears — to rest. At a press conference following a win over the Denver Nuggets on Monday, the meaning behind his social media activity naturally came up. "Next question," was all he would say in reply:
According to ESPN, a source close James says he unfollowed multiple accounts across Instagram and Twitter as part of his annual social media blackout to prepare for the postseason — but if that was truly the case, wouldn't he just say so? Seems like the mystery only serves to increase the social media chatter.
We'll know soon enough what's going on in LeBron's head, and if he'll be putting that Cavs uniform on again next season, or not.
