After playing more than 50,000 minutes, Dirk Nowitzki has certainly made a name for himself.
Even if it's still hard to spell sometimes.
On a night when his last name was botched on the back of his jersey, the Dallas forward became the sixth player in NBA history to reach 50,000 career minutes. He finished with 12 points but the Mavericks collapsed down the stretch in a 104-101 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers .
Nowitzki said he didn't notice until after the game that his name was misspelled on his uniform.
"I actually just saw it," he explained. "I had no idea. It happens. I guess it sums up our season."
