Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James was named yesterday as the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Month for games played in the month of December. James averaged 28.6 points on .482 shooting, 7.4 rebounds and 7.6 assists in 38.8 minutes per game, leading the Cavs to an NBA-best 14-3 (.824) record, which also marked the Cavaliers most wins in any December in franchise history. James has now won the award for the 13th time in his career; for the second time this season, four times in 2008-09; two times during 2007-08, once in 2006-07, twice in 2005-06 and twice during the 2004-05 campaign. The Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant was named the Western Conference Player of the Month. By the way… LBJ’s been also very impressive this month. Check couple crazy plays from last night’s game against the Washington Wizards. Anything you can do, I can do better… Kobe.
