MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the second week in a row, Miami Heat forward LeBron James has been named the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

For the season, LeBron is averaging 30.1 points per game, which leads the NBA. He’s also averaging 7.6 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game through eight games of the season.

In the last week, the Heat have gone 4-1 including blowout victories over the Charlotte Bobcats and Indiana Pacers along with victories over the Hawks and Nets.

During the last week, LeBron averaged 27 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 8.3 assists per game. LeBron missed the Atlanta game on Thursday due to a sprained ankle, but played on Saturday against the Nets and scored 32 points while grabbing 7 rebounds and dishing out 9 assists.

Perhaps the most staggering aspect of LeBron’s early season performance is that he’s hitting 60 percent of his shots on the season.

He’s also shooting nearly 80 percent from the free throw line, which if he continues at that pace, would be the best free throw shooting year he’s ever had.
