The beat goes on for LeBron James.
The Cavaliers superstar was honored Thursday with the Kia NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Month for February. It's the third time this season that James has won Player of the Month, and the 37th of his career.
For the first time in his illustrious career, James averaged a triple-double for an entire month. In 10 games, LeBron posted averages of 27.0 points on .546 shooting (.419 from beyond the arc), 10.5 rebounds, and 10.5 assists. He had seven double-doubles in February and four triple-doubles.
Among the highlights of James' tremendous February:
- A buzzer-beating shot in overtime to power the Cavs to a 140-138 win over Minnesota.
- Winning MVP honors at the NBA All-Star Game, scoring 29 points, grabbing 10 rebounds, and dishing out 8 assists to lead Team LeBron to a 148-145 win over Team Steph.
- Becoming the first player in NBA history to achieve 30,000 career points, 8,000 career rebounds, and 8,000 career assists during Tuesday's win over the Nets.
James' February achievement is even more impressive when you consider the turnover that the Cavaliers made to the roster at the trading deadline. Gone were Isaiah Thomas, Dwyane Wade, Iman Shumpert, Derrick Rose, Jae Crowder, and Channing Frye. In came Larry Nance Jr., George Hill, Rodney Hood, and Jordan Clarkson.
Don't forget the month began with Kevin Love breaking a bone in his left hand.
The Cavaliers will be in action on Thursday night when they take on the 76ers at Quicken Loans Arena.
