Shamon! Jimmy Butler did his best Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson impersonation on Saturday night by doing one of Michael Jackson’s trademark moves after sinking a game-sealing three in OT against the Raptors.

The three also gave Butler, who for some reason has been rumored to be on the trading block, 42 points on the night to go with 10 boards, 5 assists and 3 steals.

“My job is not to worry about what the media’s writing, what’s going on in the outside world,” Butler said. “My job is to come in here and work, try to help this team win games. We’re all we have in here in. Good, bad indifferent, we always lean on each other. With all the hippidy-hoopla that’s going around, just keep being you and keep working.”

And we can’t talk about Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan without showing this video too.
