Dirk Nowitzki has spent 833 hours of his life on the court

The Mavericks may have lost to the Clippers and Dirk Nowitzki’s jersey may have been misspelled, but he reached another milestone Monday night.

The Preston Hollow resident became the sixth athlete in the NBA with 50,000 minutes of playing time.  In case you were wondering, that’s equivalent to roughly 833 hours or 35 days on the court.

Nowitzki made history in 2017, too, when he reached 30,000 career points.
