Dirk Nowitzki scored his 30,000th point on Tuesday night, and while the entire NBA celebrated his monumental achievement some of the best messages came from the players and people who know him best. Former teammates and people close to the Mavericks sent some really sweet messages.
Steve Nash sent a sweet message along with the best blast from the past imaginable.
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.
Mark Cuban didn’t dive quite so far back, but still shared a memory.
