Butler recently broke one of Jordan's Bulls' records by scoring 40 points in one half against the Toronto Raptors - beating Jordan's 39.
In the aftermath of the performance from Butler, some have been comparing him to the great man himself.
Chicago fans have been dreaming of a player who could emulate the success of Jordan for years, but there is one man who doesn't want to be compared to the five time NBA MVP - Butler himself.
"I don't want to be compared to him because then people are going to think I've got to do what he did. I'm trying, but we're nowhere near the same player." - Butler on comparisons to MJ
Butler is currently averaging 21.8 points per game and is the 15th highest points scorer in the league this season.
But with the Bulls currently 20-12 and second in the Central division behind LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, they may still need more from their fifth year star.
Trying to catch number one
The Bulls are currently the number two seed in the Eastern Conference and despite being on a four game winning streak, they still have a way to go to catch the Cavs.
Cleveland - who made the NBA Finals last year are leading the East, but still not even close the record of the team who beat them last year, the Golden State Warriors.
If Chicago are hoping to end this season with an NBA Championship, they will have some big names to overcome and some tough challenges further along in the season.
