LeBron James and Jrue Holiday Named NBA Players of the Week

Like every Monday evening, the NBA has just revealed the best players of the past week. LeBron James wins again in the West (67th time in career, a record), and Jrue Holiday took advantage of the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo to win the jackpot in the East.

LeBron James wants his scoring record! Simply unplayable since his 38th birthday, the King has chained offensive cards and is thus approaching at great speed the 38,387 points of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in his career. Over the past weekJames averaged 35 pawns in four games (51% shooting), with 9 rebounds, 7 assists and more than one against average. LBJ notably exploded against the Rockets with 48 pawns on the clock, before slamming 37 in the incredible comeback on the Portland floor last night. Led by the King, the Lakers have won three of their last four games and now have an overall record of 22 wins for 25 losses.

In the Eastern Conference, it was therefore Jrue Holiday who was rewarded. During the last games of Milwaukee, the leader of the Bucks has really had to wear his with the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton still in the infirmary. 35 points – 11 assists – 2 steals against Indiana, 37 points – 6 rebounds – 7 assists – 2 steals against Toronto, 28 points – 10 assists against Cleveland, all this for a positive record of 2 wins – 1 loss. This is called step-up beauty. While Giannis and Middleton are on the verge of returning to the field, the recent performances of Jrue Vacances show how capable he is of taking matters into his own hands when necessary.

Other nominees include Mikal Bridges (Suns), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Thunder), Kawhi Leonard (Clippers) and Jamal Murray (Nuggets) in the West, and Joel Embiid (Sixers), Darius Garland (Cavaliers ), Kyrie Irving (Nets), Dejounte Murray (Hawks) and Fred VanVleet (Raptors) in the East.
