Though he's been a quiet addition to the Jordan Brand roster, Chicago Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler is making plenty of noise on the court this season.

Butler, the frontrunner for the Most Improved Player Award and a likely All-Star, laced up the 'Black Toe' Air Jordan 14 against the Utah Jazz last night. Despite his 16 points and 11 rebounds, the Bulls fell 97-77.

The 14 is, of course, the last model Michael Jordan wore as a member of the Bulls.

If Butler continues to improve, Jordan Brand is going to have to start sending him a few extra special exclusives. After all, an All-Star shooting guard (knock on wood) in Chicago should be wearing nothing but the best.
