As has been the case since 2012, LeBron James is going dark on social media for the NBA playoffs. 

The three-time champion made as much clear late Friday evening, when he posted one last time before the Cleveland Cavaliers begin their postseason quest to repeat as champions: 

James has been running with the "Zero Dark 23" mantra since his days with the Miami Heat, and it's served him well considering he's a three-time champion. 

With distractions from Twitter and Instagram out of sight and out of mind, James will try to start the 2017 postseason on an encouraging note when the second-seeded Cavaliers host the seventh-seeded Indiana Pacers at 3 p.m. ET (ABC) on Saturday.
