And then Jet [Jason Terry] and J-Kidd decided to leave, which really hurt me because they are great friends of mine. They flew out there to see him at the beginning of July… DN: Well, he's younger, he's only 24 and I think Jet is 35. But we want OJ to kind of take that role Jason had: make big shots in the fourth quarter, maybe run some pick-and-rolls as a two-guy, come off the pick shooting, spread the floor from me when I'm isolated…

So the summer started pretty frustrating but then I think we turned it around a little bit. I like [Chris] Kaman, I like [Darren] Collison and [OJ] Mayo in the backcourt, I like Elton Brand as a backup for me or Chris… I think it was close, but he decided to stay in New Jersey and have his future there. I don't think there's anything on the court that Mayo can bring that Jet didn't bring, but he's younger, more athletic, little bigger too. We want OJ to play like Jet just with a bigger body, we want him to make big-time shots. Then we let [Michael] Finley go, another one of my close friends…

Dallas was a basketball wasteland in the 1990s, one failed promise after another.

For almost every season that decade, the Mavericks were the worst team in the NBA.

'Watching Dirk the last couple of days, there was no doubt this was going to happen tonight,' Carlisle said.

Nowitzki scored the 20 points he needed for 30,000 in barely more than a quarter despite coming in with just five 20-point games this season, and the Mavericks celebrated with their second straight easy home win over the Los Angeles Lakers, a 122-111 victory Tuesday night.

This came on the heels of a less than awesome romance for the…If you’ve been counting, this is now the fourth installment of Wozniackis of Our Lives.

David Lee’s girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki has been engaged to Rory Mc Ilroy, rebounded with a dinner date with Ryan Kerrigan, and then reportedly hopped over to JJ Watt.

41 jersey after knocking down yet another shot from a seemingly impossible angle.Upon reaching the milestone, Nowitzki ducked his head into a mob of team-mates, with Dallas owner Mark Cuban clutching the side of his jersey before the Mavericks superstar found coach Rick Carlisle for a hug.The celebration of 30,000 points came a lot faster than most would have imagined - except maybe the man who has watched from the bench for nine of Nowitzki's 19 seasons.This latest accomplishment further establishes his legacy as one of the NBA's greatest players." Perhaps no video captured the raw emotion of the moment better than this shot of Dirk's shooting coach Holger Geschwindner, stoically wiping away a tear in the crowd as he soaks up the enormity of Dirk's accomplishment.But after the mania of the moment died down, Dirk - as he has done countless times before for the Mavs - got back to work, hauling the Mavericks to a 122 - 111, behind his game-high 25 points, with 11 rebounds.I was frustrated but I'm looking forward and hopefully we can have a good team again. It's not very common for a player to be friends with the owner of the team.How would you define that relationship and how did it all begin? When he first bought the team, I think that was like 12 years ago now, he was our No.The seven-foot German became the sixth NBA player and the first international one to reach the milestone, joining four Hall of Famers and a future one in Kobe Bryant.Nowitzki is one of three to score all 30,000-plus with one team.We went after Deron [Williams] and he decided to stay in New Jersey. I mean, that's a great team, I'm happy for him and we'll see how far they can go.Then we were thinking maybe Dwight [Howard] might come to Dallas and he went to Los Angeles. DN: I talked to Deron some and he actually said he would love to come. That was around the beginning of July or the end of June. He met with our guys, he met with coach Rick Carlisle, he met with Donnie [Nelson]… We gave it our best shot and he decided against us and that's fine. What do you think OJ Mayo can bring to this team that Jason Terry couldn't?
