LeBron James named Eastern Conference Player of the Week


Earlier today the NBA announced that LeBron James was the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the period of January 3rd-9th.  This is the 2nd time that James has won the award this season and the third week in a row that the winner has come from Miami.  Dwyane Wade won it last week and LeBron the week before. 

LeBron led the Heat to a 4-0 record last week, almost averaging a double double with 33.0 points and 9.5 rebounds to go along with 6.3 assists and 2.2 steals.  He recorded a season-high 44 points on Sunday in Portland and a season-high 6 steals on Friday in Milwaukee.  The 33.0 points was the highest average in the NBA.
