Dirk Nowitzki became the sixth player in NBA history to reach 30,000 points tonight against the Lakers. Nowitzki will go down as one of the greatest power forwards in the game.
The Mavericks are playing some good basketball right now, and currently were 2 1/2 games out of the eighth and final playoff spot before tonight’s action.
Here are some reaction from around the league:
Watching @Lakers vs Mavs game. Congratulations Dirk on becoming the 6th player in NBA history to score 30,000 career points!

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.
