    Nowitzki as of last night becomes only the 5th player in NBA history with 28,000 points and 10,000 rebounds.
    ....and I believe he's the only player with 28,000 points/10,000 rebounds/3,000 assists/1,000 steals/1,000 blocks, and 1,500 3 pointers made!

    What a huge milestone of an acheivement. I hope he is saving the game balls for these magical moments. He has to get to 30,000 points no matter what. He shouldn't have too much difficulty doing it. He is in rare territory. It's too bad that he is so different off the court. Many here don't root for him because of that. He is too important to the cause for me not to root for him. He is probably the only white basketball player on earth that will ever put up career numbers like that. Amazing basketball player. He is the role model for so many kids in europe and we need to thank him for that.

    Long live King Dirk Nowitzki.

    Nowitzki is 30 points from passing Shaquille O'Neal for 6th on the all time scoring list. He has 2 games before Christmas to get it done!


    6. O'Neal 28,596

    7. Nowitzki 28,567

    Nowitzki's climb up the All Time Scoring Leader Board is a joy to watch. Who could have predicted he would be one of only a handful of players to score 30,000 career points? By far one of the best basketball players that I have ever seen. The media does not give him near the attention he deserves.

    Dirk passes O'Neal tonight with 18 points so far, game still not over.

    5. Chamberlain 31,419
    6. Nowitzki 28,605 and counting
    7. O'Neal 28,596

    Next up Chamberlain. Be nice to see him get into the top 5, but he'll have to sign another contract. He only has 1 more year left on his current one.

    Look at the attention Kobe got when doing the same things Dirk is doing? The media doesn't like a blonde haired, blue eyed german man breaking these records.It's similar to Griffey hitting home run 600 vs when Jim Thome did the same thing. They hate to see white guys hit these milestones.

    Sports Illustrated did a pretty nice article on Dirk recently. What stuck out to me was that Dirk said he won't have any farewell tour when he retires, ala Kobe Bryant. He's just going to announce his retirement after one of these seasons with no advance warning, so appreciate him while you can.

    Dirk scored 40 points today in a victory over Portland. Although he is a couple months older than Kobe, Dirk is still highly productive and efficient.

    What a perfomance by Dirk. I really want to see him play until he gets 30,000 points. That
    is an acheivement is basketball similar to 600 home runs in baseball. With out a doubt he
    is a top 10 player in the nba all time in my opinion.

    "Zulu Dirk," who we already know as a weird negro fetishist who has completely discarded his Germanic race and culture, took another opportunity to get some cheap 'anti-racist' laughs to entertain the dinner-party crowd. After blocking Utah's Jeff Withey to preserve a playoff-clinching victory, Dirk gazed downward at the cuckold locker room journalists and offered this sage wisdom:

    His subjects bellowed with laughter at King Dirk's razor wit. Video linked here

    That is pathetic but he is a product of his home environment and the league he plays in. The constant white discrimination in the nba probably has changed him as a person after hearing it all these years. I don't agree or like what he said. His personal life is crazy too but I just stick to what he does on the basketball court.

    In that aspect alone we celebrate him here. It's just too bad he is not proud of his european ancestry as we all should be!

    It shouldn't be much of a surprise to anybody anymore, considering Germany just let in over a million "asylum seekers" to kill and rape their population, while the police and Merkel's Gestapo makes sure that those concerned about this suicidal policy are arrested.

    Jirk may as well flush himself down the toilet. The guy is a complete waste; a hopeless case. A man that has no pride is completely worthless.

    I confess I was flinging poo on purpose. Hannah Cunliffe has likely dated a pearly-smiled mulatto. Carson Palmer went and gave off-season workouts to his played-out "brothas" such as Terrell Owens and ignored his (white) rookie incumbents. Larry Bird ****-talked against his white defenders on race. These can all be footnotes against their achievements.

    Other white peers and aspirants see their successes and achievements on the field of play, and they still renew their resolve to fulfill their childhood dreams.

    Dirk Nowitzki is pro-actively shitting on those dreams. He might believe he is magic: "hahaha, I now transform into African!!!" Who knows what bizarre **** goes on in his mind! Don't worry about owner (((Mark Cuban))) ever putting a leash on him. It's very ironic that his Aryan phsyiology turned out to be so shameful for him despite granting him prolific success.

    It's ok by me when a young athlete makes a faux pas about his ouija-esque placement in the Caste System. Dirk seems likes he's above and beyond that level of being a piece of ****. But after a couple hundred million dollars, why hasn't Dirk solved Africa?

    Dirk has announced he will opt out of the final year of his contract. His intention is to negotiate a favorable deal so Dallas can attract some free agent talent. It appears that he wants to play 2 more seasons, joining Kobe as the only player to play 20 seasons with one team. Also, with 2 more seasons he will very likely pass Wilt Chamberlin (5), and possibly Michael Jordan (4), on the all time scoring list.

    The Teutonic Zulu Bwahahahahahah!!! Now when I look at him I'll see him in black face with a bone in his nose. When you are a race traitor ( not saying he deserves that scarlet letter ), I lose all respect, and all the accomplishments in your career, especially ones as superficial as playing sports ( lets be real it's only entertainment) will not put Humpty Dumpty's respect back together again. When I first saw those pictures of his wedding in Africa, I thought to myself; dummy even now there are Negros over there indulging in cannibalism and your big 7 foot ass would make a good meal for the entire village. He looked like Big Bird in a dashiki and a piece of white rice in a black bean stew. A career of rubbing elbows with missing links has to affect your outlook if for no other reason than going along to get along in order to cash those millions. In the NBA you are always going to be an outsider if you're white, so if you're weak minded, you'll try to fit in by kissing up.
    I give Larry a pass as annoying as it was to hear. Reason is -- he invented the art of trash talking in the NBA. The hick from French Lick is acknowledged by the brothas as the practicioner of that psych-ops method of war who started the trend. Delicious irony that the turd talking that the "looks-at-me's" are famous for was created by King Cracker. Kind of like Africa being named after a Roman general and the White man creating written languages for all sub-Saharan negro tongue waggers.
    He was brutal to the brothers in rubbing their snouts in "I told you so" and "I'm going to shoot next shot right here and there's nothing you can do about it." The "White talk" was he'd get angry if the other team guarded him with a white guy, because he wanted to torture black egos, not give the bro's a break. It wasn't so much disrespect of his white opponents as it was wanting to prove that this white cat loved dark meat.

    Regardless of his off court antics the guy is a living legend on the court. Here are his
    top 10 plays from the 2016 Nba Season.

    Dirk goes over 30,000 career points! He needed 20, and already has 25 in just 15 minutes. 6th player to reach the mark all time. Epic scorer and winner. Dallas has made the playoffs 16 out of the last 17 seasons. They're making a push again this year since Dirk's return from injury.

    Seems like just yesterday that I was checking his progress and he was still 500 or so points away!

    Not sure many more seasons he has left in him (he will be 39 in the offseason) but he has a good chance at cementing himself as a top 5 scorer. Currently he is 6th on the all time list. To pass wilt at 5 (about 31,400) he will need to average roughly 17 points per game for one season. To pass Michael Jordan at 4 (about 32,200) he will need to Average about 10 points for a second season . Behind him, Lebron will certainly pass him and there's a very slim chance Carmelo can too but unlikely. Besides them no one else in the top 50 is on pace to be even close to get to 30,000 points in the next decade

    This is an epic acheivment from Dirk. To have even thought this was possible over a decade ago would have seemed
    very improbable if not impossible. Most teams will not let a white guy be their leader and star. You have to give credit the the Dallas Mavs Owner Mark Cuban who always believed in him. I still wonder what could have been if they kept Steve Nash along side Dirk for 5 to 10 years. It would have been so fun to watch. Two legends.

    I'm so happy for Nowitzki. I know this was a huge goal of his along with winning another ring. As I've said countless times before...........Long Live King Dirk Nowitzki!

    Dirk is probably the quietest super star ever in the history of the NBA. 30K points is truly legendary, it would be nice to see him pass Chamberlin or MJ or Kobe the Ball Hog, but his place among the legendary scorers is forever secure.

    Ps If Dirk had the players that other legends like Larry and Magic had to play with throughout his career he would probably be regarded with their reverence, he is that good.

    Absolutely. Other than a few years with Steve Nash, Dirk has not played with any other Hall of Famers in their primes. Look at the 2011 Championship team where they beat LeBron, Wade and Bosh. Dallas' leading scorers that year were Dirk, Jason Terry, Caron Butler, Shawn Marion, Tyson Chandler, JJ Barea, and an over the hill Jason Kidd.

    Peja Stojakovich was on that team too, though not as a starter.
