After a stellar start to the season, Chris Bosh has earned the NBA's Player of the Week honors for the Eastern Conference. Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors took the award for the West.

The move shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. The Heat stand as the only unbeaten team in the East, and Bosh has led the way for Miami in all three games. He scored 26 points and grabbed 15 boards in the season opener, tallied 30 points and 8 rebounds Nov. 1 against Philadelphia and finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds last night. By any measure, he has earned the maximum-level contract some questioned over the summer.
This honor marks just the second time since he first signed with Miami in 2010 that Bosh has won Player of the Week. LeBron James earned the honor 19 times while he played for the Heat.
