Mavs' Dirk Nowitzki becomes sixth player to score 29,000 career points
Dirk Nowitzki became the sixth player in league history to score 29,000 career points.
Here is the shot that put Nowitzki over the 29,000 point mark:
Nowitzki is still the sixth highest scorer in the NBA and trails Wilt Chamberlain for fifth by more than 2,000 points. At 37 years old, Nowitzki is nearing the end of his career but he could pass Chamberlain if he remains healthy and the Mavs are able to adjust his role in the future.

But even if Nowitzki doesn't pass Chamberlain, he will go down in history as one of the best scorers in the history of the league and has amassed a number of notable career accomplishments like winning an MVP award and an NBA championship.
