Nuggets guard Allen Iverson was named the NBA Player of the Week for the Western Conference for the week of Dec. 31 to Jan. 6.

According to NBA.com, Iverson led the Nuggets to a 3-0 record, averaging 33.3 ppg on .531 (34-64) shooting from the field, .471 (8-17) shooting from long distance and .923 (24-26) shooting from the foul line. He also dished out 5.0 apg and played an exhausting 43.6 mpg during Denver's three wins against San Antonio, Minnesota and Philadelphia.

This is the 22nd time in Iverson's career he has gotten the honor. He was named Western Conference Player of the Week earlier this season on Nov. 19.

Iverson joins Carmelo Anthony and Alex English as the only players in Nuggets history to win the award multiple times in the same season.

Additionally, only Michael Jordan with 25 and Karl Malone with 23 have more Player of the Week honors than Iverson in NBA history.
