Today, the NBA announced that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has won Eastern Conference Player of the Week; the third time this season and 56th of his career.
During his winning week, James averaged a league-best 32.5 points (0.585 FG%, 0.409 3PFG%), 8.0 assists, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.3 steals in 38.5 minutes per game. Furthermore, James’ impressive stat-line led the Cavaliers to a 4-0 record last week.
James also individually led all Eastern Conference players in points per game (32.5), total points (130), and field goals made (48).
James recorded at least 25 points, six rebounds and seven assists in all four games last week, extending his streak of consecutive games with at least 10 points to 738 (third-longest streak in NBA history). He continues to be the most accomplished player of the week in NBA history.
It seems The King isn’t resting on his laurels. In fact, numbers like these suggest the exact opposite.
