Dirk Nowitzki Joins 30000 Career Points Club During Lakers vs. Mavericks

Dirk Werner Nowitzki is a German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the NBA.

Jason Kidd, the point guard with Nowitzki on Dallas' only championship team in 2011 and second in the National Basketball Association in career assists, joked that he should have passed more. If Nowitzki does that he would match Kobe Bryant, who set the record for playing 20 seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers.

In 2010, he became the first European-born player to tally 20,000 points in his career. So I kind of want to make the 20 fold. Nowitzki is just the third player ever to play 19 seasons with the same team.

Lebron James is the only active threat to Nowitzki's spot at No. 6. "It's been an wonderful ride and a couple more baskets are coming and then it's time to ride off into the sunset". The Lakers dropped to 19-45.
