That being said, I still think Durant was the better player in 2014, as SBT pointed out they both got rocked by the same team, and dissecting LeBron's finals isn't going to help anybody here right now.

Also, I am stunned ISH got a good new poster, @aussiesteve

yea, basically... LeBron was at a level where he could take his teams through the thick of the post-season, meanwhile, under KD, there are a bunch of variables that could easily see him lose sooner (what if Jackson doesn't bail out his all time terrible game, Westbrook getting games into OT, etc.), as there were still very real gaps in his post-season arsenal and mental standpoint... he was able to go for more in the regular season, but LeBron, conserving and all, would at the end of the day be the more impacting/valuable player at the highest stage of them all, the playoffs.
