No! - as in go away.
no-no - a taboo

See me once, I can be a number. See me twice, the sports team likes to slumber.

No. is an abbreviation for number.
A no-no in baseball is a game in which the pitcher does not allow any hits.

I think I have something!

0 (the number)

See me once, I don’t want to, shoo!

Still not sure

See me twice, care what you say, for I’m a taboo,

Well, saying “00” in mathematics without anything in front is generally frowned upon.

See me once, I could be a number

It is a number

See me twice, the sports team likes to slumber
