Lebron's problem is some of his were unavoidable, you have to apply context.
I'd actually say 4 of LBJ's 6 finals losses you could swap in MJ and he is taking the same L. 2015 would be like taking Pippen and Grant out and expecting MJ to win against a 100% healthy Finals opponent. 2007 would be like MJ in his 3rd or 4th year and expecting him to beat a HOF stacked squad of veterans.
And all of the Durant Warriors losses would be L's for anybody in history taking his place on those Cavs teams, those squads were all time stacked due to a cap anomaly that will never be repeated.
Now what you would not have seen - to be fair, and this is why you can give MJ a clear nod over Lebron in terms of Finals performance - is MJ would never have gone down like LBJ did in 2011, and I also don't see him getting rolled in 2014 like the Heat did - Lebron didn't play bad in that series but Jordan wasn't getting spanked like that, can't see it happening.
The Durant Warriors nearly lost to the Harden Rockets. Im pretty sure they can be beat.
