'95- Houston’s Hakeem Olajuwon passed the 10,000-career rebound plateau after pulling down nine boards in the Rockets’ 122-117 loss at New York.

'96- Phoenix’s Charles Barkley pulls down his 10,000th career rebound in the first quarter of the Suns’ 98-94 OT win against visiting Vancouver, becoming the 10th NBA player with 20,000 points and 10,000 rebounds in a career.

'01- Guy Rodgers, a four-time NBA All-Star who led the league in assists twice in a 12-year NBA career from 1958 to 1970, died of a heart attack in Los Angeles at age 65.
