In 14 games during the month, James averaged 30.2 points on .498 shooting, 8.9 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game. James also won the award for the month of January when he led Cleveland to an 11-3 record. James has now won the award seven times in his career: twice this season, once in 2006-07, twice in 2005-06 and twice during the 2004-05 campaign. During February, James led the NBA in points per game (30.2) and scored at least 25 points in all 14 games.

Over a three-game span from Feb. 19-22, James posted at least 25 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists in each game. He joined Wilt Chamberlain and Oscar Robertson as the only three players to ever reach those levels in all three categories in each of three consecutive games. Source: cavs.com.
