T-Mobile Player of the Week- 4/15/10

This post is sponsored by T-Mobile.


It's been more like a week and a half since we last did this, but I figured I'd throw the Knicks' last two games into the equation for player of the week considerations. I'd usually spring for the week's highlights- Bill Walker's career game last night, Danilo Gallinari's huge second halves- but in our final edition of the T-Mobile award, we're sticking with stability. David Lee has been a rock this season, and save for a little hiccup against Dwight Howard and the Magic, Lee kept producing right up until the final buzzer. Check out his lines since we last did this:

Again, the limited minutes and team-wide suck in Orlando hurt Lee's stats, but he was typically brilliant for the rest of this stretch. 20-ish points, ample rebounds (not his best week in that regard, but we'll blame that on The Aristocrat), and a smattering of assists, just for the hell of it. I could've picked Lee pretty much any week this season. He's been that consistent. Considering that it may have been his last week or so as a Knick, David Lee gets the nod for yet another rock solid stretch in a breakout season.
