This week’s choice was a tough one. Last week’s Eastbay Player of the Week, Russell Westbrook, was once again a strong contender, especially after going for 43 points, eight boards and eight assists in a win at Indiana last friday. But this weeks Player of the Week is going to Blake Griffin.

I’ll admit, this choice probably has a little bit to do with giving late credit for a dunk two weeks ago against the Knicks. But it also has a lot to do with him averaging 26.7 points and 14.3 boards for the week. Griffin’s delayed rookie season has been one of the best stories thus far this year.

Can he keep up his early pace and take home Rookie of the Year?
