Dallas Mavericks great Dirk Nowitzki joined an exclusive club on Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. The future Hall of Famer surpassed 30,000 points scored in the NBA, a group that includes Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Karl Malone.
Social media was lit up after Dirk hit the mark — with his patented leg kick fadeaway, no less — and current and former NBAers got in on celebrating with Nowitzki. LeBron James even stopped his dinner to record a video message for the Mavericks forward.
The Mavericks even got folks from Germany to congratulate Dirk as part of a compilation video:
Real respect for one of the all-time greats.
