On this date (January 30th) in 1996, NBA Legend Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers came out of retirement for a one night only sensation.  Posting 19 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists in a Lakers win against the Golden State Warriors. It was his first game since the 1991 NBA Finals, where they lost to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls 4-1. One of the greatest “curtain calls” in the history of professional sports for one of sports most iconic figures.
