Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki became the sixth player in NBA history with 30,000 career points after draining a signature fadeaway jumper from the baseline on Tuesday.
The shot came against the Lakers on a three-game night in the NBA, leading to instant reaction on social media from active players, former teammates and other legends of the game.
Big congrats to my buddy Dirk! 30 stacks!!! Only six players in the history of the game have scored 30,000 points. On this day in '98 I would've never believed you'd still be with the @Mavs, be an MVP, NBA Champ and in the 30k club no matter how many nights we went back to the gym for 1 on 1 and shooting battles. Unreal, historic, clutch player and better person.
