LeBron James named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

The NBA announced on Tuesday that the Miami Heat's LeBron James was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. He won the award five times last season, though his first time didnt come until the 9th week of the season. During the 5 game span in week 1, LeBron averaged 29.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.2 blocks, leading the Heat to a perfect 5-0 record. This is a great start to the season for James, as he seems to be flourishing in Miami's high-powered offense. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come...
