John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

Kyrie Irving has officially been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for January 21-27. Also, grass is green and the sky is blue.

Kyrie Irving was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for his play last week.

"This" constitutes the biggest display of swag and awesomeness seen yet in the NBA this season. How does someone simply walk up the floor with 12 seconds left, see Alan Anderson, and then just decide it doesn't matter that he's standing there and just nail a three? With Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose out, Kyrie has established himself as unquestionably the best point guard in the Eastern Conference right now.

Hopefully, that leads to a decision today (or maybe later this week) for him to start the All-Star game along with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett. More and more, Kyrie is proving that he deserves mention in that upper echelon of all-stars.
