The rumors about Edwards being Jordan's son are based on their physical similarities and the way they dominate the game. However, it has been confirmed that the two players are not related. While Edwards has had interactions with MJ, he has not been confirmed as his son. Jimmy Butler of the Miami Heat has also been linked to Jordan as a potential son. However, further research confirms that Butler was named after his father, Jimmy Butler II, and is not related to MJ. Butler's story of being left behind by his father when he was an infant was confirmed by the Heat forward himself. Despite the rumors about Edwards and Butler potentially being related to Jordan, it has been confirmed that they are not his long-lost sons. The Hall of Fame shooting guard has five children, and none of them are Edwards or Butler. Former NBA player John Salley joked about Butler potentially being MJ's son, but confirmed that he was just joking. The theory of Butler being related to MJ was brought up after his impressive 56-point performance in Game 4 of their first-round series matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. While the rumors may persist, it is important to stick to the facts and confirm whether or not these players are actually related to Jordan, or if they are simply two talented young stars making their own mark on the NBA.
