Jordan was the oldest scoring champion in NBA history, and on Feb. 21, 2002, he became the first 40-year-old to score 40 points in an NBA game. He scored 43 points in 43 minutes of an 89-86 victory over the Nets. "I don't feel like 40," he said after the game. "I feel I can compete, and on certain nights I can compete with the best."
