It is not a detriment to lose in the finals. Just look at Jerry West one of the 15 greatest of all time, and ask him if he would trade losing in the finals for first/second round exits.
Lebron didn't just lose though.. he lost in an embarassing, choking manner. He definitely lowered his case with those performances.

Charles Barkley- post-"The Decision"
He’ll never be Jordan. This clearly takes him out of the conversation. He can win as much as he wants to.

this quote is damn right.
