Jordan makes 30,000 points

Jan. 4, 2002: Jordan joined the exclusive 30,000-point club during his two-season stint with the Washington Wizards. And he did it against his old team. Jordan needed 15 points in a home game against the Bulls to accomplish the feat. With about 5 minutes left in the second quarter, he drew a foul from old friend Ron Artest. Jordan hit both free throws and got a standing ovation. The game wasn't stopped until Jordan was fouled two possessions later. It took Jordan, 38 years old at the time, 960 games to reach 30,000, second-fastest all time to Wilt Chamberlain (941).
