After averaging 18.0 points, 14.3 rebounds, 7.8 assists and helping lead the Warriors to a 4-0 record last week, David Lee was named by the NBA as the Western Conference player of the week.
The accolades are starting to pile up this season for Lee. This is his second time this season earning conference player of the week recognition (third overall) and was named as a reserve to the Western Conference all-star team two weeks ago.
Former Warriors and current Bulls point guard Nate Robinson earned Eastern Conference honors.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut called out the Houston Rockets following the contested game between them.

The plan for Andrew Bogut upon coming back to the lineup last week was to sit out the second game of a back-to-back until the all-star break to minimize stress on his recovering left ankle. That plan provides an interesting predicament for the Warriors this week with the Rockets and Thunder on the docket for a back-to-back, beginning on Tuesday.

Lee once again proves why he's an All Star
Monday, February 4th: Bulls @ Pacers, 7:00 ET, NBALP: It’s an eight-game Monday tonight, which is different, but there still aren’t any choices that really stand out as far as probable entertainment value… which is pretty much what I look for in my selections.
