The Chicago Bulls selected Butler with the 30th overall choice in the 2011 NBA draught. In his debut season, he only played 42 games due to the lockout, which cut the 2011–12 season short. He appeared in all 82 games for the Bulls the following season. Butler was awarded the NBA's Most Improved Player for the 2014–15 season, becoming him the first player in team history to do so.

The Heat advanced to the NBA Finals after defeating the Boston Celtics in six games in the Eastern Conference Finals, giving Butler his first berth in the Finals. In six games, the Heat were defeated by the Los Angeles Lakers. Butler joined James in 2016 as the only player in a Finals series to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.
