LeBron James Sets Incredible Stat On Off Day
LeBron James had a stellar, four-game week averaging 29.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks on 56.4% from the field and 45.5% from downtown as the Cavs won three of the four games.
The NBA announced that James won the Player of the Week award for the week March 21 to March 27. It’s the fourth time this season James has won this award, but there is a more important stat James reached.
According to Basketball Reference, LeBron has the most Player of the Week awards in NBA history, and just won the award for the 52nd time of his career. That’s an entire year’s worth of Player of the Week awards. If you think about that, it’s an absolutely incredible feat. James never won the award during his rookie year in 2003-2004, which means that in his 12 seasons in the NBA, James has won the award an average of over four times per season.
James will sit out tomorrow night against the Rockets, but the Cavs play the Nets and Hawks on back to back nights Thursday and Friday.
