James, Bynum win weekly NBA awards
Cleveland's LeBron James and the LA Lakers' Andrew Bynum were named NBA Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week.
James led the Cavaliers to a 3-1 record during a weeklong West Coast swing. He averaged 30.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 2.3 steals in the four games. He posted his twelfth double-double of the season with a 33-point, 14-rebound effort Jan. 24 in a win against Utah.
Bynum had point-rebound double-doubles in three of the Lakers' last four games.
