Maybe LeBron James needs to do more contracting of statements, regarding contracting the league, because he’s playing his best ball of the season right now.

For the second week in a row, I’m naming the defending MVP Player of the Week. Whether it’s fair or not, thanks to the Decision, he is going to be scrutinized for pretty much any statement he makes this year. The statement he’s been making on the court lately though, is that he’s as serious as ever about winning a championship. This past week he averaged 27 points, 9 boards and 7.3 assists, including a triple-double in the Heat’s Christmas-day routing of the Lakers.
