Dirk Nowitzki has done something very few players have done and that is score at least 31,419 points in their career. He has passed NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain. That puts Nowitzki in the 6th position in the most points scored all time.
It is awesome to see Nowitzki to achieve this. He has meant a lot to the game of basketball and the Dallas Mavericks. There are a lot of great players but there isn’t another Nowitzki. He has been a great player and an even greater teammate.
It will be hard to find a person who doesn’t like Nowitzki. He torched teams on the court and stayed humble. Not many players can say that. Nowitzki paved the way for other European players in the NBA and every time those players see him, they show him nothing but love.
Watching players and teams show Nowitzki love this season has been awesome. My favorite moment was when Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers called a timeout late in the game just so he can hype the crowd up and show Nowitzki love. That has never happened before.
That is why Nowitzki will go down as one of the greatest to play the game. Players and coaches love this guy more than they love most other players. There will be a lot of comparisons to Nowitzki bit there won’t ever be another Nowitzki to play the game.
