Dirk Nowitzki on Tuesday scored his 30,000th career point in the Dallas Mavericks’ 122-111 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. And some comments he made after the game evidently earned him some sudsy rewards with which he and thousands of others can wet their whistles.

Nowitzki needed only 20 points Tuesday — he scored 25 in the win — to become only the sixth NBA player to reach the 30,000-point career mark, a milestone obviously worthy of celebrating. When asked after the game about how he’s celebrating the monumental achievement, Nowitzki quipped, “I just had a Bud Light for the first time in a long time.”

Well, it turns out the folks at Bud Light heard about Nowitzki’s affinity for their beer. So, what happened? Bud Light sent the NBA superstar a can of beer for every point he has scored in his Hall of Fame-caliber career.
