LeBron James mysteriously unfollowed the Twitter account of the Cleveland Cavaliers this week, leading many to wonder if he was planning on once again abandoning his hometown team after this season is complete.

Though the most likely reason is likely less odoriferous than that—reports out of Cleveland say he unfollowed a number of Cavaliers-related accounts in order to clear his mind for the upcoming playoffs—James also clearly wasn’t happy to be asked about his decision on Monday.

On Thursday, it was revealed that James still isn’t pleased with the attention his social media habits have received, asking in a video apparently recorded by teammate Richard Jefferson if the banana peel he was holding was going to cause him to slip out of Cleveland. Note the mocking reporter voice (that sounds eerily similar to the way I ask questions).

Yet James has been cryptic on Twitter lately, vaguely subtweeting his own teammates. For instance…

Or maybe it’s all some kind of meta-joke that James laughs about in his spare time. Or when he’s eating a banana.
