Can Dirk catch Wilt on the scoring list?

At 35 years old, Dirk Nowitzki isn't slowing down. His 24.53 player efficiency rating is currently No. 9 in the league. His 22.0 points per game is tied for No. 11, coming in ahead of guys like Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard and Rudy Gay. And over the last five games, Nowitzki has averaged 29.8 points a game.
Obviously, there is a lot left in the tank of this all-time great, and though Dirk is currently No. 13 on the NBA's career scoring list he isn't far from passing six Hall of Famers (John Havlicek, Dominique Wilkins, Oscar Robertson, Hakeem Olajuwon, Elvin Hayes and Moses Malone) in the near future.
High high can he finish on the list when he finally calls it quits, whenever that time may come? Lets take a closer look.
