The German has been with the Mavs since 1998 and is the 34th player in NBA history, and the first European, to hit the 20,000-point milestone.
Apart from being the Mavericks’ all-time leader in points, rebounds, field goals, field goal attempts, 3-pointers, 3-point attempts, free throws, and free-throw attempts, Nowitzki has made the NBA All-Star games eleven times, and the All-NBA Teams twelve times.
He was voted NBA MVP of the 2006–07 NBA season, becoming the first European player to receive the honour, as well as the MVP of the 2011 NBA Finals having led his team to the title where they scorched Miami Heat.
“Jessica is probably the best thing that happened to me this year. After the incidents in 2009, I never thought that I was so quickly on what can engage new.
