A Mavericks fan sent Dirk Nowitzki? a special potato

Updated: 

Dirk Nowitzki recently became just the sixth player in NBA history to reach 30,000 career points, so someone sent him a potato in celebration.

It is a very nice potato, and Nowitzki will probably enjoy it very much.

As for where the potato came from, it was sent through the company Potato Parcel.

If you are a fan of "Shark Tank" - which just happens to star Mavs owner Mark Cuban - then you may be familiar with this company. They got a deal with their potato-shipping company, which puts images or words on a potato and sends them to people.

As to why people enjoy sending decorative potatoes, well, you would have to ask them.
