Jordan Poised to Wow Audience in Wizards - Knicks Game - 2001-10-30

Basketball superstar Michael Jordan returns to the court Tuesday in New York, coming out of retirement for the second time. Jordan's regular season debut with the Washington Wizards against the New York Knicks is the hottest ticket in town.

Jordan says he has a lot of memories on the Knicks home court. He scored 55 points against the New York team after he ended his first retirement in 1995.

During his legendary career with the Chicago Bulls, he won six championships and earned the fourth highest total scoring in league history.

But Jordan is 38-years-old now and is playing with a team, the Wizards, that only won 19 games last season. A Celebrity studded crowd will attend the game.

Filmmaker Spike Lee auctioned a ticket for more than $100,000 to benefit a fund for the families of firefighters lost in the September 11 attack on New York. The anonymous winner then donated the ticket to the child of a lost fire fighter.
