Carmelo Anthony is Eastern Conference Player of the Week, obviously.

USA TODAY Sports

Duh.

It is Monday, so here's this:

Well, yeah. This is Melo's third Player of the Week award this season, but those previous weeks couldn't even touch this first week of April. To recap: Carmelo Anthony played four games and the Knicks won all of them. He tied a career-high with 50 points (on just 26 shots, including 7-10 from downtown) in Miami, scored 40 points on on 27 shots against Atlanta, produced 41 points and 14 rebounds against the Bucks, and dropped 36 and 12 in Oklahoma City on Sunday. Melo had six turnovers total over that four-game stretch, and five of them came in the one home game against the Bucks. It was a pretty okay week.

Melo takes this week's award after J.R. Smith did so last week, making those two the first teammates to win consecutive Player of the Week awards since-- via bluecheese999, as all good things are-- Ersan Ilyasova and Drew Gooden(!) did it in March of last season.

Well done, Mr. Anthony. Keep it up.
