Jordan, the Wizard, became the fourth player in NBA history to score 30,000 career points when he sank a free throw against the Bulls on Jan. 4, 2002. It took Jordan 960 games to reach 30,000, trailing only Wilt Chamberlain. Kobe Bryant became the fifth and youngest member to join the 30,000 club in December 2012.
