LeBron James gladly talked about another triple-double, another division championship and a resounding win — No. 50 this season for the Cavaliers.

His social media habits, though, were off limits.

James scored 33 points and recorded his 41st career triple-double night as Cleveland clinched its second straight Central Division title with a 124-91 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

But as James was piling up the statistics, the Internet was abuzz with reports that he had apparently unfollowed the Cavs' Twitter account earlier in the day. It was the latest off-the-court chatter surrounding James, who has posted mysterious messages in the past — and declined to speak with the media following the team's morning shootaround.

Asked if it was true he dropped @Cavs, James said, "Next question."

He was then asked if he and his teammates can carry this performance over.

"My mind," he said, shaking his head. "I'm done."
