Watch Dirk Nowitzki score 30,000th career point with signature shot

Dallas Mavericks big man Dirk Nowitzki hit a huge career milestone on Tuesday night.

Nowitzki became just the sixth player to reach 30,000 career points, and did so the same way he scored many of those points — by draining a beautiful teardrop fadeaway jumper.

Dirk scored No. 30,000 by hitting his signature shot, and poor Larry Nance Jr. had no chance guarding him on this play.

Nowitzki then celebrated with his teammates and Mark Cuban after draining a three-pointer shortly afterward.

Dirk joined some pretty good company as far as players who accomplished the feat playing for only one team.

He’s the best international player to ever suit up in the NBA, and it’s not even close. Congrats to Nowitzki, who looks to be a future Hall of Famer.
