Michael Carter-Williams Named NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Also named Time's Man of the Year.

Fresh off a dynamic NBA debut in which he propelled the Sixers to a 3-0 start, Michael Carter-Williams has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Take it away Marc Stein.

Carter-Williams is averaging a tidy 20 points, 9 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.3 steals a game through the first week of the season. Hi there, Oscar Robertson, I didn't see you come in. Let me take your coat. And while most pundits point to an unavoidable regression on the horizon, I offer a counterpoint:

Maybe Michael Carter-Williams is just the greatest player ever?

The Sixers, left to rot on the side of Broad Street while the Eagles, Flyers, and Phillies hog the headlines, have become the toast of the town overnight.  And Michael Carter-Williams, who entered the season as an unknown quantity, is up ten points over the incumbent in the Philadelphia Mayoral Race according to Quinnipiac University's latest poll.

The Sixers play the Warriors tonight at the Wells Fargo Center. Be there.
