LeBron James is playing the best basketball of his three-time MVP-winning life right now.
In eight games during the month of February, James is shooting 66.9 percent from the floor.
In three of those games, he shot over 70 percent, and against the Charlotte Bobcats, he shot 92.9. He's averaging 31.5 points in the process.
Despite his overwhelming dominance, however, there are options that every NBA title contender can explore for stopping James as much as possible in the future.
For each NBA title contender—with a winning percentage over .600 at the All-Star break—that option for stopping James does include the hope shared by all defenses that he simply misses.
At the same time, though, specific strategies unique to each team can help entice James to miss far more often than he has lately.
