Remember When Wednesday Jan 8

Remember when Michael Jordan scored his 20,000th career point?

It was January 8, 1993 and the Chicago Bulls were playing the Milwaukee Buck's.  What seemed like just another January night in the NBA quickly turned onto history.  Michael Jordan poured in 35 points to lead the Bull's to a 120-95 victory over the Buck's.  The 35 points gave Jordan exactly 20,00 points for his career.  Jordan had become the second fastest player in the NBA to reach the 20,000 point milestone.  The only person that accomplished this feat quicker was Wilt Chamberlin, who did it in 499 games.  Later that June Jordan led the Bull's to their third consecutive NBA title beating the Phoenix Suns 4 games to 2.
