Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was named yesterday as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, March 16th through Sunday, March 22nd. James wins the award for the second consecutive week and becomes the only player in the history of the award to win it seven times in a season (The Player of the Week award has been awarded since the 1979-80 season and awarded by conference since the 2001-02 season). In four games during the week, James averaged a double-double with 30.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.0 block per game. James has now won the award 20 times in his career, including a career-best seven times this season, three times in 2007-08, twice in 2006-07, five times in 2005-06 and on three occasions during the 2004-05 campaign.
