And Mj also himself played in what was maybe the weakest years of this "weak" east and missed the playoffs twice.

East/West was way more even for most of the 90s. In fact, you needed more wins to make the Playoffs in the East for most of MJ's championship seasons. You needed like 36-41 wins to make the Playoffs in the West in the 90s.

For example, the Western Conference had 6 teams with less than 30 wins in '98 while the East had only one below 30 and 5 below 40 wins.

Lebron has had a Finals run facing ZERO 50+ win teams, the 2013 Eastern Conference only had two 50+ win teams, one of which was the Heat while the West had five and you needed 45 wins just to make the Playoffs vs. 38 in the East.
