Strength+Shooting Ability+Post Game gives him the edge over almost anybody that guards him. This allows him to have the ability to make himself an offensive presence anytime he wants to. He can bully you in the post, and if that doesn’t work, he can use his size and body to shoot over you. Pure Scorer is just a word that describes Dirk Nowitzki.
Best NBA scorer (total points) of all time. Underrated in this list.

He has the most points ever!
Second all time leading scorer of NBA.
He was 16 times top individual scorer (7 times in Italy, 1 in Spain and 8 times in Brazil).
49,737 total points in his 29 year professional career.
He was drafted by the New Jersey Nets in the sixth round of the 1984 NBA Draft, and had several other opportunities to play in the NBA, but declined them all in order to continue to play for Brazil's national team (until 1989, NBA players were not allowed to play for national teams). While playing in Italy, he earned a fan in future NBA star Kobe Bryant, who called Schmidt one of his childhood idols and later said Schmidt could have been one of the greatest in the NBA if he had played there.
The Brazilian forward is (unofficially) the greatest total scorer of world basketball with around 49,000 points.
I wonder how he would've done in the NBA - 2storm
Most fans do not know that he had the highest NBA season scoring average EVER by anyone not named Wilt Chamberlain.
Elgin Baylor averaged 38.3 points per game in the 1961-62 season, compared with Michael Jordan's highest ever season average of 37.1.
The problem was, that happened to be the year that Wilt averaged 50 points a game, and nobody ever bothers to check who came in SECOND.
One of only 5 NBA players to ever score 70 points or more in a game. Interestingly, Michael Jordan never did it!

Dražen "Praja" Dalipagic is a retired Yugoslav player of Serbian origin.
Nicknamed "The sky jumper" he played in his country and Italy and scored a total of 14,631 league points, which makes him the 2nd all time scorer of all European National leagues and the best European (1st is the Brazilian O. Schmidt). Best year of his career was 1981-1982 averaged 42.9 ppg in Yugoslav top division. His record of 70 points in a game was succeded aged 36,when the 3-point shot was implemented. And Dalipagic was used to 'shot from his home' (as we say in our country).
A legendary player with four medals in World Championships (a record) and the first European who was close to play in NBA (1975). He refused in order to keep the amateur status and continue to play with his National team.
The 'iceman' were 4 times top sea season scorer of NBA coming third (together with Iverson and Durant).
D-Wade’s acrobatic ability allows him to create the shots he wants, plus his lightning quickness allows him to maneuver and shimmy his way into the paint with ease. Also, has an impeccable mid range shooting game, so he can score from virtually anywhere on the court.
13th all time scorer of NBA with 26,668 points (24.8 ppg), scoring champion 1986.
Keep it up
you a gee
Most underrated scorer in NBA history, three times top season scorer.
