It has been 15 years since Michael Jordan last graced an NBA court in uniform.

The widely considered greatest of all-time is best known for his dominant years with the Chicago Bulls, but Jordan ended his career with two somewhat underwhelming seasons with the Washington Wizards.

On April 16, 2003, Jordan played his last game in the NBA, scoring 15 points in a 107-87 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers before hanging up his sneakers for good.

That game featured a surprising amount of big-name NBA players, some of whom had great careers.

See what happened to the other prominent players from that game.

Across from Jordan was Allen Iverson, one of the biggest names in the NBA at the time. He led all players that night by scoring 35 points.

Brown had a tumultuous time in Washington. He failed to live up to his lofty expectations as the No. 1 pick and often received criticism from Jordan. He did have a solid 12-year career and most recently played for the Big3.

The 76ers were coached by Larry Brown.
