Default Does playing in a rubbish conference give LBJ a MVP advantage over KD?

It seems that the heat and pacers are playing against rubbish teams night in and night out.. Where the thunder have at least 8 other very good teams to battle against in the west... My question.. Does this give Lebron an unhealthy MVP advantage? We all know there is a major imbalance in the conferences now.. But is it enough to inflate someone's stats enough... Now I'm not saying Lebron hasn't played at a MVP level.. But I do believe his statlines would be Lower if he was in the west..
What do you think?

Yep, Bron struggles mightily against the super stacked West. What are his stats and record against the West again?

Lebron is better vs the West than the East.

But there is a difference in coming up against a strong west team once every 2 weeks compared to playing them 2 times a week.. There is a major difference when you have to grind against those teams night in and night out..

KD has an advantage since the Thunder are more familiar with the strong Western teams. Lebron plays them twice a year and still dominates.

If anything, it gives Durant an advantage since Lebron and the Heat always play better against the West.

Your logic doesn't hold up.

You could say the West teams have the advantage against KD because they are more familiar with the Thunder.

At the end of the day, LeBron plays in a garbage conference with a stacked team.

Good player, but even better circumstances.
