LeBron James is three-for-three in the NBA season.
He's won the January Eastern Conference Player of the Month for the third consecutive time this season and fifth consecutive time dating back to last season.
James' production in the month of January with Mo Williams and Delonte West injured made it difficult to not choose him.
He led the Cavs to a league best 12-3 record for the month averaging 30.7 points (first for the month) on 50 percent shooting, 7.3 rebounds and 8.5 (second) assists per game. He scored 20 or more points in 14-of-15 games this season. James also recorded 1.6 steals per game, the fifth best in the league for January.

- Jan. 10 @ Portland: Totaled 41 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in a 106-94 win over the Trail Blazers.
