Jimmy Butler hits preseason game-winner, gets premature Michael Jordan comparison

Thursday, Jimmy Butler scored 29 points on 8-for-14 shooting and 12-for-16 shooting from the foul line in 30-plus minutes. His game-winning 3-pointer sent the United Center into a frenzy and even got Tom Thibodeau pumped.

Of course, why were the starters playing in the fourth quarter against the Hawks’ second unit in the fourth quarter? Thibs’ methods are quite mysterious.

Really though, why is Stacey King comparing Butler to Michael Jordan after a preseason game?!
