Miami Heat star LeBron James was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for his performance in games played Monday, Nov. 5, through Sunday. It marks the 38th time James has won the award, the most in NBA history.
During a span in which the Heat went 3-1, James averaged 21 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, including a 23-point performance in a win against the Suns and two near-triple-doubles.
The reigning MVP had 20 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in a victory against Brooklyn on Wednesday and followed that up with 21-point, 11-rebound and nine-assist effort in Thursday's win in Atlanta.
It's the first time James won the award this season. Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings had the honor for the season's first week. James won the award six times in 2011-12.

No matter how you feel about LeBron, one thing can’t be denied, the man has crazy hops. Last night against the Memphis Grizzlies he started the fast break and received a pass from Mario Chalmers that saw LeBron go up, step on Tony Allen’s shoulders and even blow a kiss [...]
HOUSTON -- Even with a collection of ballyhooed offensive stars, the Miami Heat earned the 2011-12 NBA title by mustering exceptional defensive intensity during the regular season and ratcheting it up in the playoffs. So far this season, however, the Heat's defense hardly could be considered passable. Miami is ranked second in offensive efficiency for a reason, though, and...
THAT WAS FAST
With the 2012-13 NBA season just two weeks in, a Miami Heat staff member has put up last year's championship ring up for auction. See how much it'll take for a bid.

What better way to start this weekly column with a little
MVP talk 5 games into the season? With our traditional preseason picks of Kevin
Durant or Lebron James it comes time to look at some other names that need to
be considered if the award was to be handed out today. Below are three other candidates early
on this season.
When the Thunder traded James Harden shortly before the season, the small-market contender did more than clear salary cap space. In dealing the heady two-guard, the Thunder also signaled that they believed Kevin Durant was ready to expand his game and to fill some of the roles Harden formerly occupied.
Durant has come through so far this season, and then some. Not only has he assumed...
The Miami Heat's coach, Eric Spolstra, has adopted what he calls a position-less philosophy. Basically, that means there are five multi-positional players playing the game on instinct. It is not as random as it sounds though. The very conventional plays and basketball philosophies still remain. The game is still played from the inside out and there are still set positions for...
Jeremy Lin better not be a starter in this all star game...
