Another week, another Eastern Conference Player of the Week award for LeBron James.

On Monday, the NBA announced that James had been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. This is the second week in a row James has won the award, the fourth time overall this season and an NBA record 61st time James has won a player of the week award.

Last week, the Cavs went 4-0 as James averaged 34.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 11 assists per game. His week included three double-doubles (and one triple-double) while the Cavs adjusted to life without head coach Tyronn Lue.

In Cleveland’s win over the Bucks on March 19, James became the first player in NBA history to score 35 or more points and 15 or more assists while committing zero turnovers. He also became the third player in NBA history to score at 2,000 points in a season at 10 or more times.

Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge was named player of week in the Western Conference.
