LeBron James has picked up another Eastern Conference Player of the Week award. It is the 52nd time James has been named Player of the Week - an NBA record - and the fourth time this season.

The Cavs, who went 3-1 last week, announced James award in a press release and in a tweet:

From the release:

James led Cleveland to a 3-1 record this past week, averaging 29.0 points on .564 shooting from the field, including .455 shooting from three-point line, 8.5 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.0 steal in 35.3 minutes per contest. He led the Eastern Conference in points per game (29.0), total points scored (116), field goals made (44) and plus/minus (+62), while ranking second in the East in assists per game (8.8), second in free throws made (23) and 11th in rebounds per game (8.5). The 12-time NBA All-Star was the only player in the NBA to have multiple triple-doubles last week (2), as well as the lone East player to average at least 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson was named the Western Conference Play of the Week.
