LeBron James is an NBA superstar, first and foremost. Secondarily, he's a Twitter savant. He uses his social media account as an instrument of peace and a weapon of passive aggressive destruction. Commonly, the Cleveland Cavaliers star uses his voice for good. The baller approaches social justice issues with an impassioned and educated eye. But he also sends messages that cryptically ruffle feathers of teammates, fellow players, and people at large.

These are four of James' most curious tweets, explained.

4. James on Donald Trump

This isn't passive aggressive, this is straight up aggressive.

The tweet came in response to President Trump rescinding a White House invite for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors. James was quick to speak up on behalf of his NBA brother, who already implied he was inclined to decline the invite. In retrospect, the tweet shouldn't serve as much of a surprise - the president has become a frequent target of James and other NBA figures like Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich.

3. James on David Griffin

David Griffin - or "Griff," as James referred to him - was the Cavaliers general manager for several years.

Despite some concerns about his tenure at the start, the team made three straight trips to the NBA Finals and won the first title in franchise history under his leadership, before he was unceremoniously dumped last summer. Therefore, the "no one" in the tweet likely referenced team owner Dan Gilbert, fueling ongoing speculation about James leaving the team after this season.

2. James on Kyrie Irving

The Quavo line from Drake's "Portland" could have been harmless. But everyone knows it wasn't. Instead, it was directed at teammate Kyrie Irving after a perceived insult the point guard made at a wedding, which was followed up by the un-following of James on Instagram.

Shortly thereafter, Irving was dealt to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas. Looks like Irving won't be riding James' wave anytime soon.

1. James on Kevin Love

The original sub-tweet that started the constant vigil held on James' social media profiles. A little while earlier, new teammate, Kevin Love admitted that he wasn't making much of an effort to "fit in" with his teammates, so it was an open secret who this tweet was directed towards. Eventually, he found his way with the Cavs, resulting in the team's NBA championship in 2016. Sometimes sub-tweeting really does work!
