Default Dirk needs 28 for 10000

Did anyone notice that Dirk has scored 9972 career points now and is in reach for his 10000th point tonight. How many Mavs players besides Finley and Stackhouse have reached that mark?

Stackhouse hasn't scored 10000 Mavs points!

It won't be easy keeping this up, but if he scores at this clip for a few more years..... maybe 5 years? Considering his rookie season wasn't great on scoring, I could see him reaching 20,000 someday.

Better accomplishment will be 10,000 + rebounds averaging 9+ per game.

Right now in many people's eyes he's not much better than Tom Chambers. Of course Chambers couldn't rebound against a bunch of junior high kids... but that's different. The label will stick for a while considering Chambers' career accomplishments: 20,000+ points... a few all-nba teams.

It won't be easy keeping this up? I would be shocked if Dirk doesn't shatter the 20,000 point mark. He's reached 10,000 in less than 6.5 years. One of those years was the strike shortened season where Dirk was clueless about what to do in the NBA. I think Dirk will end up closer to 35,000 than 20,000.

If Dirk ends up with 35,000 than he should be recognized as one of the better players to ever play the game.

Hehe, as usual with Murph, he "only" said that he thinks Dirk will at least make 27,501 points ... so calm down a bit just now.

For that to happen, he has to average 25+ for at least 9 more years while missing no more than 2 games per season.

No one said that Dirk would score 35,000 points. I said that I expect Dirk to be 'closer' to 35,000 than to 20,000. There's a VERY big difference between what you're laughing about and what I said. Your reading comprehension is sorely lacking.

As for Dirk needing to average 25+ points for nine more seasons, let's get started. By the way, Dirk's on pace to end this season with around 11,248 points. That means that he'd need to score 16,523 more points to reach 27,501. He'd need to average around 17 points over the next 12 seasons. Dirk's only 26. I see no reason as to why he won't play 12 or more seasons and average 17 or more points.

Personally, I see no reason why he shouldn't average around 26 for at least 5 more years after this. That should leave him needing only about 6,000 points while still in his early 30's.

27501 is definitely reachable.

Default RE: Dirk needs 28 for 10000

Here's an interesting thought:

Who (for there career) will have the most points?

Lebron
Dirk
Kobe
McGrady

Kobe and McGrady are 3,000 and 1,000 more points more than Dirk right now. But they are all roughly the same age. Lebron is intertesting in that he may not score as much on average as them but he has had a better start than all 3 of them.

I think Malone would give away 10.000 of his points for one ring...

All of them have something going against them. For Lebron, Kobe and TMac, well...guards don't seem to hold up when it comes to scoring at a high pace. With Dirk, he has his ankle issues.

But, Dirk and Lebron obviously haven't hit their ceiling when it comes to scoring. So, we'll have to wait and see. Kobe has a nice advantage because of his selfishness.

Lebron I think. Only due to him starting his career off earlier than any of those others.

Here's the truth. Dirk dosen't give a s%$ how many points he scores. Kobe, iverson and other selfish twits do.

Dirk Just wants to be the best team and win it all.

You´re right bloody. Dirk wants to hit his shots but he is not a scoreboard-slave. But to some fans stats are the salt in the soup and I thought 10000 points is worth mentioning.

Didn't Kobe & TMac come into the league when they were 18? Of course, Lebron arrived with a much more polished game. Presuming they'd all play until they're 35 and retire, I'd guess, Lebron will end up with more points than any of 'em. Dirk will end up with more rebounds and blocks. Lebron would end up with more assists and steals.

LeBron was the youngest player ever to hit 2,000 pts, so he has to end up with the most points out of anyone, although it would kinda be neat if Dirk accomplished 30,000+ pts.

Wait until he's 30 to say one way or another. Another thing that is looming is another stoppage in play after the end of the year.

To me it's like saying the arguments about Aaron and the home run record. Just 4 years ago, everyone thought GHriffey was the lead candidate. Now Griffey was lucky just to get to 500.

Dirk has got to put together a few more season like this year or 2002-2003 for him to be considered a 30,000 prospect.

In interviews in Germany Dirk always says he wants to play at least 10 more years. You can tell he really loves his job when he talks about it. I think he has a shot at 30000 while LeBron has a shot at 40000...seriously. I think both don't really care.

I read 10 posts into this thread going "wtf? he hasn't got to 10k yet?" and "murph really thinks he can get 27500+ even though he's at 10k right now?" until I read the "Dirk's 26 now" line. I fail.

It looks like I might have been right nearly 10 years ago... Dirk just needs to somehow manage to reach 27,501.

When I saw the title I thought it would be about his rebounds until I saw the date and realized that can't be right. Funny to read almost 10 year old predictions though

In case anyone is interested, he needs less than 350 rebounds to reach that number (9654 right now). Not exactly sure but I dont think there are a lot of players with 25k+ points, 10k+ rebounds and over 3k assists. And only 28 more personal foulds to reach 3k

I could be wrong but I believe he'll be the first with 25k pts/10k boards/1k 3s

Murphy3, if you're as wise today as you were 10 years ago I must ask you... where will Dirk finish his career statistically?

Will he have 30,000 points? How far above 10,000 rebounds will he go? How far above 1,500 3-pointers will he go? He is 9 away from 1,500 3-pointers, and he will likely have his 10,000th rebound this season. He also just had his 1,100th shot block! He's also had over 3,000 assists and 1,000 steals. He's done this while averaging .477/.383/.878 for his career. How many players have done this?
